Anne Frank Trust Ambassadors

Nine Year 8 students were chosen as Anne Frank Trust Ambassadors and have been working with representatives from the trust to produce a film linked to gender discrimination.

The film will be included in future assemblies and PD lessons to be designed and delivered by the ambassadors themselves.

The effort, attitudes and creativity demonstrated by all students involved have been commended highly by staff from the Anne Frank trust who described students as ‘a pleasure to work with.’ We look forward to seeing the video, assemblies and PD lessons soon!

Our Anne Frank Trust Ambassadors

Dance Festival

Our dancers performed at the area dance festival at The Parks last Tuesday evening.  The theme was Stage and Screen.  We had two groups performing on the night.  Our Y7 group were performing for the first time and our senior girls performed a separate dance at the event.  It was a superb occasion where all the girls proved to be excellent ambassadors for the school. Well done to all who were involved!

Year 8 Rugby Success

Last week, our Year 8 boys rugby team entered a sixteen team 7-a-side tournament at Gosforth RFC. After playing group and knockout stages we managed to get to the final where we narrowly lost out to the private school, Dame Allen’s.

Well done boys. A superb effort!

Meanwhile, next time, our rugby team will take on their opponents in brand new kit, after kit suppliers Canterbury delivered the new kit which was designed by Marden students before Christmas.
In October, four students spent the day at Kingston Park, home of the Newcastle Falcons, working with kit manufacturers Canterbury and came up with a design that the students have modelled below.
