Marden students performed magnificently yesterday at the Tyne & Wear Indoor rowing championships. They represented North Tyneside at the Tyne Amateur Rowing club and as we await individual results we can reveal we achieved 1st place in the team relay race, with another team getting third. An outstanding achievement.
Congratulations to everyone who entered Mrs Potter’s Valentine’s Day Poetry Competition. There was some great poetry from a variety of students across different year groups.
Congratulations to this week’s students nominated for Work of the Week!
A small group of Year 9 students travelled to the Lake District for a weekend retreat, taking part in motivational team building exercises. Competing against other schools, they were the weekend winners and are currently the overall leaders in the schools challenge cup with just one weekend of teams to go.
Congratulations to the Year 11 boys, who competed at the Tyne & Wear badminton final. They picked up two wins vs. St. Aidans & Whitburn, as well as a narrow defeat to Thorp and a 3-2 loss to RGS. The boys played exceptionally well and battled for every point and each other. Well done!
Congratulations to the Year 7 girls who came 4th at the North Tyneside 5-a-side football tournament. They put in a fantastic performance on Friday and showed great determination and resilience.
Thanks to all students who made cards in the LRC this week in support of Cullercoats Library.
All North Tyneside Libraries are facing cuts and closures due to council cuts and Marden High students have been showing their appreciation of books and reading by sending handmade cards to the library with messages inside of why they love to read.
Miss Seal took a total of 76 cards away with her on Friday and they are currently on display in Brown’s Salthouse in Cullercoats.
They will eventually be displayed either in the library or other local businesses so keep your eyes peeled!
