It is important that our children grow up to be well-balanced individuals and understand the importance of community and helping others. At St. George’s we do many things to assist with this.
For example, at Harvest time and at Christmas, we collect items for homeless/disadvantaged families and young people and at Easter we organise various Easter-themed activities in order to fundraise for charity. See our Blogs for more details.
We also teach the children about the environment and world in which we live, including how to live an eco-friendly lifestyle.
We also develop close links with care homes for the elderly as know what benefits this can have for both age groups. The children visit and spend time in care homes – they take hot cross buns at Easter and sing carols with their elderly friends at Christmas time. The elderly also visit us at nursery and join in on many of our daily activities. This precious time with our elderly friends is thoroughly enjoyed by all!
Other members of the community will come and visit also such as parents with specific skills or jobs that the children can learn about, the police, the fire service, doctors/nurses, check out our Blogs / News to see some of the things we get up to.
