Young Mayor Speaks at Holocaust Memorial Day

Our Year 8 student Poppy Arnold, the Young Mayor of North Tyneside, spoke at a Holocaust Memorial Day event on Friday.

There she met TV personality Judge Robert Rinder, who also spoke at the event just before Poppy.

Helping Hand

Handball is becoming one of the fastest growing sports, and our region is making great steps towards making it a key sport in schools and colleges, with more clubs and opportunities to play throughout the North East.

As part of our PE department’s relationship with Tyne Met College, some Marden students were featured on BBC Look North last night in their handball segment. The video starts at around 19:48. Follow this link to watch it on BBC iPlayer.

Community Clothing Scheme

The PTA are collecting items of school uniform that are no longer needed to pass on to the Community School Clothing Scheme.
This is an organisation based at the Cobalt which provides uniform, along with other items to families struggling to source them including coats, bags, shoes etc.
All have to be in good condition and any donations can be dropped off at school reception.
For more information follow THIS LINK to their Facebook page.
Thank you!
