Our Town Saint George in the first records is mentioned in 1332. Its denomination comes from the knight Saint George, also the patron saint of the town. In the Middle Ages, until 1880, Saint George was divided officially in two parts: a town and a village, when they were administratively united.
In the last century the architectural style of the town had a rather rural than an urban aspect. Apart from the military buildings and the Town Hall there were only a few houses built of stone. The people made houses of wood covered with thatch and shingle.
The oldest building of the town is the Church-castle where these days our school goes to celebrate the beginning of a new school year. It was built at the end of the 15 th century in ogival style. Our park started to develop in 1880.
The first recorded history of teaching originates from the 17 th century. The town did not have a school which offered a higher education and this gap was rectified by the Grammar School, founded in 1859. Its building was inaugurated in 1893 and at the end of the year the first examination took place.
Reformed High School is situated in the heart of Saint George, opposite the Elisabeth Park. In the building, where the school is, there is another school too, the 'Szekely Miko' High School. Our School
Starting with 2003 the school has a new headmistress: Peto Maria. There are also some new teachers in the school, who teach in both of the schools.
At Reformed High School there are many interesting and specific activities, like the "Silent days". This program usually starts on a Friday afternoon and ends on Sunday, and on these days everybody must take part of the programs. During these activities everybody has the opportunity to get acquainted with each other.
The usual program of the "Silent days" includes Bible studies, dancing lessons, school party, performances and many other programs. These programs are organized by students and the members of the DP (Students Presbyterian Council). In every year-level there are two classes a math class and a language class.
In October, usually at the end of the month, the 9th graders, more precisely,the math and the language classes compare their knowledge, they perform short plays, they compete with each other and try to do their best to win. This competition lasts a week and it is called the freshmen’s week.
On the 15th of September, on religious feasts and on breaking up festivals the high school go to church. On these special days girls wear black skirt and white shirt and the boys black trousers and white shirt. Every Monday starts with a half an hour devotion / prayer when the priest tells stories from the Bible and explains them to us.
We were in the Education LC, a group of 13 pupils. In our group there are four boys and nine girls. Gergely Lorand (15), Gergely Peter (17), Nagy Erzsebet (17), Dalnoki Gabriella (16), Boga Annamaria (16), Daragus Emese (16), Kicsi Katinka (16), Szokos Emoke (17), Jakab Emoke (16), Focze Hunor (15), Biro Emese (15), Simon Reka (15). Our GTP Group
As we are of different ages, we are interested in different subjects and themes. However everybody in the team found that piece of question in the Education theme, that he or she was interested in, as education concerns everybody. Not just the teacher, but the pupils too.
During this Learning Circle we wanted to compare our school- system with our partners’ school- system. We completed this task partially, as because of technical problems we didn’t get all the messages from our partners. And according to the received letters and information we drew the conclusion that our school-system is similar to our partners’ school- system.
Although we hardly found an appropriate time, we enjoyed the Learning Circle, and hope to take part in the next session.
