Soccer Aid for Unicef Playground Challenge was delivered during Yr7 PE lessons on Wednesday 10th July. This was a fundraising event and the money the school raised will help children in danger all over the world, helping them to grow up healthy and happy.
Four obstacle courses were set up and each child was timed to complete the course, moving with a ball at their feet or in their hands. The students achieving the fastest times coming either first (gold), second (silver) or third (bronze) will all receive a gift voucher.
On Thursday Year 7 took part in a Super Learning Day based on a theme of flight. They spent the morning studying adaptations of birds of prey courtesy of staff from the Kielder Birds of Prey Centre.
The afternoon was spent doing Science, Technology and Maths activities such as building and testing rockets, learning about bearings. Thanks to everyone who took part!
On Tuesday night we hosted our annual summer talent show Marden’s Got Talent! It was a great night with some tremendous talent on show.
Well done to everyone who took part!
Last week, 28 Year 7 students from Marden High were invited to work with charity Hand Of
and three brass musicians to explore the work and rich history of the Tynemouth Volunteer Life Brigade (TVLB) through Art, Music, and Drama, in a project called THE TYNE AND THE TIDE.
During the week, students visited North Nepia, a ship insurer, on Newcastle’s Quayside to learn about life at sea. With the support of the artists, students devised a multidisciplinary performance that was held on Friday 31 June, at the TVLB Museum. Family, friends, teachers, and some of the Coastal Rescue Team themselves, were delighted with the performance and congratulated students on their hard work throughout the week.
On Thursday, Year 9 students who have opted for GCSE Computer Science received input from regional industry experts from across the cyber security subject area at an event held at Northumbria University.
It was an opportunity for students to explore a range of careers in cyber security. Organisations represented included Northumbria Police Cyber Crime Prevention Team, Accenture and EY.
Well done to all who took part!
