Who is the patron saint of England? It is St. George. English people celebrate St. George’s Day every year on April 23rd.
It has to be said though that unlike the Scottish and Irish, who celebrate their patron saints in style and by drinking alcohol, the English really do not celebrate their day! In recent years efforts have been made to increase the day’s importance, but it actually lacks serious effort by the English.
Who exactly was St George? Did he really slay a dragon? An assembly for Key Stages 3 and 4 to mark St George's Day. The plan includes some stories and links to a PowerPoint presentation and a film. These resources - and many more like them - can be downloaded for free at: www.truetube.co.uk
