Do you have old board games?
Do you have a board game you have finished with? Would you like to donate them to the library? Now the weather has turned colder students are coming to the library to play with board games at breaktimes. Some of the library games are a little worse for wear and we would appreciate any donations. Thank you, Mrs Marshall and Mrs Onions in the library.
Thank you so much for your generous donations. We have now finished collecting. The Foodbank greatly appreciated the donations which will help many people who are experiencing financial difficulty this winter.
Lloyds Bank Community Fund for Daniel's Pond
Please support our project by giving us your vote! One click is all it takes. Daniel's Pond is a memorial to a young man who tragically lost his battle with a debilitating illness in his teenage years. The pond has sadly has fallen into a state of disrepair. The Community Fund would enable us to restore Daniel's Pond to its former glory and to widen the path around it to enable wheelchair access. It has been a source of learning and pleasure for pupils at this school and the local primary school for many years. With improved access other local stakeholders would also be able to use it; the local primary school children for pond dipping activities our students for their environmental studies and the local community as a social amenity. It is a wonderful resource and it would be great to see it being used to its full potential again.
If you would like to support us with this project and help us win this funding from Lloyds Bank, please vote for us by clicking on this link The Marlborough/Ormerod School. You will be taken to our voting page and instructions on how to vote. Your details will be treated in confidence and will not be used in anyway. The more votes we have, the more chance we have in achieving our goal. Please show us your support.
Charity Recycling Bank
From mid-July, the school is hosting a charity clothes bank on its front car park. Look out for the ‘pink metal box’! The charity is ASPIRE which is an Oxford based charity whic supports people who are coming out of short term prison sentences and are without work. The charity offers paid employment for them and the chance of a fresh start. The school also receives a ‘pay-back’ percentage per tonne of the stuff deposited. As a school which has always said to its pupils, “we can all make a mistake; learn from it and move on”, this seems to be an appropriate charity to support. We hope you agree and will support ASPIRE (and the school) in this initiative.
