Dear Parents

Re: Lord Robert Winston – ‘The Wonder of our Brains’

Monday 15th May 2017 from 2:00pm at Platt Memorial Hall.

As you will see from the attached flyer (reverse) the Pilgrims Way Partnership of Schools, which includes St. George’s School, have been able to welcome Lord Robert Winston to talk to our pupils about ‘brain power’ and how we learn best.

This is wonderful, ‘once only even’, opportunity for our pupils in Year 6 to hear from a leading figure and professor! Many of you will have seen Lord Winston present numerous television programmes as well as perhaps reading one of his books. We are very fortunate to hear from such an imminent figure.

Later in the day all staff from the four schools will hear a similar message from Lord Robert which I know we are all excited about.

There will be no cost to the event for the pupils but we are in need of transport to and from the session to be held at Platt Memorial Hall and this is where we need ‘parent power!’ Parents who do transport are welcome to stay for the presentation which will conclude around 3:00pm.

After the presentation Lord Robert will be available to personally sign his new book which normally retails at £15 but he is willing to sell these at approximately £7:50.  I will confirm this price when final arrangements are made.

In the meantime please can you consider whether or not you are able to support the class with transport. Please return the slip below asap.

Warm regards


Miss N. Brownfield              Mr D. Jones
