The Roses celebrate St George's Day
High March School celebrated St George’s Day in style last week. The school, which is in Ledborough Lane in Beaconsfield, used the opportunity to fundraise in order to support Evelina who lives in Tanzania. “At High March there are four houses and each year the Rose House raises money for World Vision who has linked us with Evelina,” explained Mrs Claire Mullin, the Head of the Rose House. “It is such a worthwhile cause and the children always have huge amounts of fun. This year they have raised money by dressing up as something typically British and we have sold cakes and drinks during play time.”
Mrs Sue Clifford, the Headmistress said, “The girls love the opportunity to dress up and at assembly this morning we had a fantastic variety of costumes, ranging from regal to sporty. These included Queen Elizabeth I and Queen Victoria, as well as more modern personalities such as Jenson Button and Rebecca Adlington. We even had someone dress up as a box of English Breakfast tea!” On a more topical note, pupil Isabel Avery spent the day as an Air Stewardess and Chloe Chancheong continued the theme, as aviator Amy Johnson. Emmeline Pankhurst made an appearance, complete with protest banner as well.
The day culminated in some fun in the sun, with the girls organizing games such as ‘Score a Goal for England,’ ‘Guess the Flag’ and ‘Name the English Football Player’ for the school to enjoy. Congratulations to the girls for their brilliant efforts which meant a memorable day was had by all!
