About the lion Together We Grow will be displayed alongside the school's lion cub, also called 'Together We Grow'. The lion's design features Windsor Castle painted horizontally across the body, with children’s faces as the windows and castle turrets for legs. He has a union jack saddle and a red, white and blue mane.
About the sponsor Parents Groups are the social glue for the school, we aim to run fun events for our children and the families of St Georges School. Fund-raising and event profits go towards supporting charities and enhancing the day to day of our St Georges School Children. We chose to take part in this scheme for a few reasons, not only that its a fantastic scheme and a wonderfully creative way to raise money for charity, it is something the whole school could be involved with. The Parents Group at St Georges chose to sponsor the large lion to ensure that every child was able to be involved in its design and the creation of the design. The school's art department asked all the children in the school to submit a design for consideration. The PG were presented with so many amazing design.The art department created a design that featured 6 children's designs on the lion, ensuring this really was a whole school project. The Lion has since been moved around the school to both lower and upper school and various classrooms for each and every child to use their thumb print to create the overall design. The children have been truly delighted to be involved. Thames Hospice is one of the many charities we as the PG support, however, last year and this year Thames Hospice will be our main charity for support as we unfortunately lost two parents in the same class both to cancer. This is a fitting tribute to both those parents and to all this that have been affected by cancer.
