1500 children lined a route across Weybridge’ to mark school’s 150 anniversary
Pupils and students aged three to 18 lined the route from the Junior School to the College today (8 October) to symbolically join the two schools as part of the Hands Across Weybridge event to mark the 150th Anniversary Year of St George’s Weybridge.
“It was such an exciting event,” said Rachel Owens, Headmistress of the College. “To see children of all ages interacting so openly emphasised the unity of the College and Junior School and highlighted our common ethos.”
The memorable ‘handshake’ was the first time all children at the Junior School and College had gathered together. “What a lovely morning!” was Junior School Headmaster Antony Hudson’s reaction. “Something like this takes a huge amount of planning – over 1500 children and young adults organised with the one purpose of linking both schools for a moment in time.
