About our school
Our school was founded in 1875 and was at first known as the St. George's Grammar School. It is now a small public elementary school, of approximately 140 students, aged 5 to 12, and is the only 'aided' primary school in Bermuda. We have our own Board of Governors. The school and its grounds are privately owned, but the curriculum is set by the Bermuda Education Department. We have beautiful grounds and a huge playing field. There is a large gymnasium which also serves as the assembly hall. Our library and multimedia room has 26 Macintosh computers, and some of the classrooms have older Apple IIgs computers connected to a network. We like to work with computers and spend around 2 hours a week doing that. We also like sports such as soccer, hockey and netball in the winter and cricket and swimming in summer.
Every class in the school has taken part in this project - from the 5 and 6 year olds in Primary 1, to the 11 and 12 year olds in Primary 7.
We would like to point out that this project is the children's work - spelling, and phraseology, especially that of the youngest age groups, was left as it was written by them.
We have had help from all sections of the community, from parents and friends and we would like to thank everyone who has taken part. Our helpers will find credits to them on the pages which they inspired. Special thanks to the staff of the school for their support and encouragement.
