M.A.D. For It!

Yesterday, eleven Year 9 students visited the Newcastle University Medical and Dentistry (M.A.D.) school to learn more about what it was like to study either medicine or dentistry at this university.

They experienced a variety of activities from lectures to practical sessions. They gave it their all with CPR, intubating Simon the SIMman, reassembling a pile of human bones and painting on specific facial muscles in the medical practicals.

They also looked at animal dentition, carving a replacement tooth and using disclosure tablets in dentistry. Well done to all students involved!

Lakeside Challenge

Over the weekend, six students attended the YMCA centre in Windermere for the Lakeside Challenge, an intense outward bounds activity competition, involving schools from around the country and taking place over a number of weekends in February.

The students worked very hard late into Friday night and right through to Sunday lunchtime, learning new skills and representing the school to the highest standard.
They were a credit to the school – well done to all who took part!

School of Sanctuary Assemblies

A group of Year 9 students have been working with Ms Griffiths on a “School of Sanctuary” project.

The group’s aims are to promote inclusivity, tolerance and acceptance within Marden High School and the wider community.

Last week they delivered assemblies to all year groups about racism and tolerance.
