Do you have any unwanted Christmas gifts? Our Parent-Teacher Association is making an appeal for any suitable donations that someone else could make use of, and would make great prizes for future raffles or tombolas. These could be unwanted chocolates, drinks, toys or other unused gifts.
Please bring any donations to the school’s reception or LRC and students will be rewarded with 10 house points. Thank you!
Newcastle Dog & Cat Shelter would like to say a huge thank you to all students who contributed to our appeal before Christmas. The shelter popped in yesterday, with Roscoe the dog, to collect the food, toys and bedding that Marden students had donated last term and they were blow away by the response.
The return journey to the shelter was a tight squeeze for Roscoe, as the car was filled with our donations, but it was indicative of the generosity of our students, many of whom were pictured with Roscoe before the donations were handed over.
Well done to everyone who took part and donated to the appeal!
Thank you to all students and staff who contributed to our food bank appeal this Christmas, and also those who donated food and other items to Newcastle Dog and Cat Shelter.
Four students delivered boxes and boxes of food tins and packages to one of The Bay Foodbank‘s drop-off locations this morning. A marvellous donation by our generous school community at this time of year.
All Year 8 students enthusiastically took part in a variety of experiences during the latest Super Learning Day.
The programme for the day involved reflecting on the use made of light in the local churches and we are grateful to both Cullercoats Methodist Church and St George’s Church in Cullercoats for hosting groups of students as they researched stained glass windows.
Another group of students used knowledge of shadow and lighting to create superb light boxes.
They took part in a Science and Dance based activity in which they created a motion piece to illustrate the energy transferred by coloured light, as well as a Media project, designing Christmas themed adverts which used the colour theme of the day.
Then, in the afternoon, all students created and made Christmas themed stained glass effect panels to help decorate the school.
Well done to all who took part, and have a great Christmas.
In recent Art lessons, our Key Stage 3 students have been designing Christmas cards, with the winning entries selected for our official Christmas card this year.
As competition was so good, below are some more of the entries as we approach the festive season.
Happy holidays from everyone at Marden High.
