Still need school books? Or have school books your child no longer needs? Here you might find the perfect match. Due to difficulties in sourcing some books, let us know below if you need a book or have a book.

For those who have books, please share:
1) Name of book/edition
2) Form
3) Condition
4) Price (free or otherwise)
Photos would help.

If someone posts a book you need, comment and then make contact offline to make arrangements. This is a parent-led initiative to help us all out; the school will not be responsible for the pricing or condition of books.
On behalf of the Class of 2009 (The First Graduating Class of STGSS) and the entire St George’s Secondary School and families, I would like to extend our deepest condolences to the Family and Friends of Mr. Derry Etkins.

As part of the STG Generation that knew him first,
Derry Etkins was not only our Music teacher but an excellent leader who helped to mold and shape our young minds for the future that is now before us.

(Side Note: He was ahead of his time with the F***y Pack! The Resurgence was real! I wish we could’ve told him...but I’m sure he knew!!)

The 1st Gen. St. Georgians will NEVER forget the wisdom you imparted on to us. May your soul Rest In Eternal Peace and May we see you on the other side!!!

Choosing a Major

Form 4 & 5 parents/guardians/teachers:

I hope this note finds you well, greetings from the principal's office!

​In an effort to support students in selecting a career path, if that is the family's plan, a virtual presentation has been organized so that outside voices, directly from universities, will contribute to this process.

They will give a brief 30-minute presentation on Friday, March 25th at 11:00 a.m. After the presentation admissions officers will stay online in case students would like to ask any questions. I have advised teachers, so they will allow students who have registered, to participate at that time (Period 3, while is school) Students must be registered to participate.

I've attached a flyer from the group and here is the link to register: https://apply.dukekunshan.edu.cn/register/cedarintl22

Please contact me with any questions and have a blessed day!
Yours in education,

I am pleased to announce that St. George’s Secondary School was victorious in yesterday’s preliminary round of the Inter-Secondary Schools’ Debate series, against Ciboney Centre for Excellence.

The school was represented by Pedro Garcia and Destine Cline, of Form 4, along with Trinity Lettsome of Form 2. Their coaches are Mrs. Shari-Ann Audain, Mr. Dante Frett, and Ms. Shakira Bedminister.

In yesterday’s moot, our students were tasked with opposing the motion: “Juveniles charged with violent crimes should not be tried and punished as adults.”

Their stellar performance awarded our team 1st place, with an overall score of 625.5. Additionally, two of our debaters- Pedro and Trinity- tied for second place in the category of ‘Best Speaker’ with points of 241.5. Best speaker was awarded to Ciboney Centre for Excellence who received a score of 252.

Please join me in extending congratulations to our young debaters, and to the teachers involved in their preparation. We wish them God’s blessings for the upcoming semi-final round!

Dear parents/ guardians:

Season's greetings to you from all of us at SGSS! I hope you had a nice Christmas with your family and loved ones.

Given the current Covid 19 situation on island and around the world, we will start the Lent Term online, commencing with a day of orientation and preparation for teachers on Tuesday, January 4th. Students will start lessons on Wednesday, January 5th, following the same schedule we used in Term 1. We will monitor the situation closely and a decision regarding a return to face-to-face instruction will be made in due course.

Students should adhere to the following guidelines:

Students should look for conferences on Schoology and join at the stipulated class time.
If unable to attend a lesson, an email should go to the teacher indicating this, and ensuring that the student has all materials to complete assignments.
Teachers may be contacted by email or through Schoology by students and parents.

Please communicate with any questions, big or small, so everyone is comfortable as you children start the academic year.

With wishes of a blessed and prosperous New Year!

Yours in education,
Ms. O. Vázquez

Greetings from SGSS Culture and Tourism day!

Today has been a glorious day, filled with BVI culture, music and fun. Students participated in different workshops and guests joined us to share their knowledge and talent. A big thank you to Ms. Shakira Bedminister, our Caribbean History teacher, for her leadership during this event.

As we part to enjoy a long weekend, parents are reminded to ensure students prepare well for exams. Junior students (Forms 1,2 & 3) are expected to come to school every day on time to take exams or regular lessons. Senior students (Form 4 & 5 ) will be allowed to leave campus after their exams (only when signed out by their parent/guardian) or to stay home if they do not have an exam that day.

Form 5 parents, please do not forget the registration form and payment for CSEC exams.

Have a blessed long weekend and thank you for sharing your children with us!

Warm greetings from the Principal's desk to all families of SGSS!

I hope this correspondence finds you well and excited about the culture and tourism celebrations on island this month. Our students have decorated the school in commemoration of our cultural heritage. Teachers will be integrating the theme of culture and tourism in lessons and on Friday, November 19th, students are asked to come to school in cultural wear.

We plan on having a day of experiential learning with activities, workshops and displays. The canteen will be selling local food only that day. Our music students will be playing Fungi music under the leadership of Mr. Keimar Greene. Additionally, we have invited community guests who will share their cultural knowledge and experience with our school community.

If any member of the parent community would like to contribute to this day by offering a workshop related to BVI Culture, please contact Ms. Shakira Bedminister, our Caribbean History teacher, who is leading the program of that day.([email protected])

Kindly be reminded that Parent-Teacher conferences will take place November 8th, 9th, and 10th, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Students will be dismissed at 12:00 p.m. (noon) on those days.

Mr. Junior Jacobs will be offering remedial classes for Form 4 Geography students on Thursdays from 3:30 to 4:30 and Form 5 Geography students on Mondays at the same time. This will start on Thursday, November 11th.

The registration process for CSEC has begun. Correspondence has gone out to Form 5 parents with all details. If you have any questions regarding the completion of the form, please contact Ms. Odalys Gonzalez, our vice-principal at [email protected] The form must be signed and returned between Thursday, 4th November and Tuesday, 9th November. The deadline for payment of fees is Tuesday, November 30, 2021.

As part of the Form 5 Class of 2022 fundraising activities, the school will allow a dress-up day on Friday, November 12th, 2021. Students are asked to wear the color blue in celebration of World Diabetes Day. Diabetes is a chronic health condition where the concentration of glucose in the blood (blood sugar) cannot be regulated properly. The Class of 2022 will use this opportunity to educate the student body on this disease. The cost will be $5.00 for regular dress. Please see the letter sent attached with guidelines on attire.
