PTA Appeal!

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!

Food Bank 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.

Wear Red Day – This Friday!

Each October Show Racism The Red Card holds its annual WEAR RED DAY, a national day of action which encourages schools, businesses and individuals to wear red to highlight an ongoing campaign to work with more young people and adults across the UK to challenge racism in society.

All last week, School of Sanctuary students at Marden delivered assemblies preparing students by raising problems of racism and discrimination, and students have been learning more in specially planned PD lessons.

We are taking part this Friday 12th October, encouraging students to wear red for a £1 donation. Click the image for more information on the campaign!
