Journalists of the Future

Our Year 8 news team produced some brilliant reports for BBC News Day today, which you can see online HERE.

We remembered the late Stephen Hawking, caught up with Sport and Creative Arts at Marden, learnt about populism, debated the American gun laws, analysed Marden’s carbon footprint, and found out about girls getting into STEM.

Well done to everyone who took part!

17 Minute March

On March 14th, over 130 Marden staff and students took part in a 17 minute march around the school field to remember those who lost their lives in the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida last month. The march lasted 17 minutes in memory of the 17 people who lost their lives that day. The plan for the march at Marden was suggested by Robert Morley of Y8 and supported by a large number of staff and students.

World Book Day 2018

After the snow interrupted our original plan for World Book Day, it took place a week later, and there were plenty of activities on offer for Year 7.

As well as dressing up as literary characters for the day, there were creative writing workshops, a lunchtime quiz and prizes for the most effective participants and the most creative thinkers.

£123.14 was raised throughout the day and will be donated to Book Aid.
