24th April St George's Balloon release

Yesterday's balloon release was superb; and really added to the St George's day celebrations in school!

Yesterday's balloon release was superb; and really added to the St George's day celebrations in school! We have already had many replies from were balloons have landed; and some lovely comments to. The nicest one; I think; was one that said 'reading the story really brightened up my day'

For those of you who don't know; we released 250 balloons with a story on - all the children re wrote the story of St George, in 60 words or less, in a different Genre! So we had romance, thriller, horror, fairy tale..... and rather strangely, even Comedy!

You can keep up to date with the location of 'touch down' of the balloons on twitter - @stgeorgesce - the furthest travelled balloon thus far made the coast at Crosby; after 4 hours of flying.....

You can also see how far the balloons travel and where they get to by clicking this link for a map, and click here to see the photos.

"Hello,

I found one of the St George and the Dragon tags. It belongs to Alex in Class 3.
The tag was found today in Redgate, Ormskirk."
 
"Hello.
The tag for Sam in Class 2 was found in Ledson Grove, Aughton, Ormskirk ( L39 6TB ).

Regards,"
"Dear St George's

I found Jack's (from class 2) tag in my garden. I live in Crosby, Merseyside, near the town centre.

I agree with Jack that St George must have had a very sharp sword. It's not easy to slay a dragon! Jack has lovely writing and must have worked very hard.

Well done Jack and all the children who sent balloons. I hope some got very far away."
