Our S6 leadership team have chosen the local charity Give a Dog a Bone as their focus for this month. They have various competitions currently running in school, including Match the Dog with the Teacher and Best Dressed Dog Competition. Each are available to Marr pupils and staff to take part in with donations being received in the room next to the main office. The Best Dressed Dog is being hosted on the pupil leadership group Instagram page Head on over to Insta to check it out. @s6leadership_marrcollege You have until 30th Nov to send in your entry.
The date of our next Non Uniform Day has been changed to the 22nd February 2019. The chosen charity for this day is LGBT+. An updated copy of the parent calendar, which includes events happening in school, has been uploaded to reflect this change and can be downloaded here.
As part of the support for our cluster primaries, we will be having a fundraising day this Friday. One of our cluster chaplains, Richard Woods, is currently over in Haiti working to build a school. As part of our commitment to RRSA and Unicef, each school in the Marr cluster has been asked to raise a minimum of £150 to support the “Classroom in a Box” initiative which will see 8 classrooms in the new school being given basic supplies to allow education to start in the new building.
Please bring home baking, money to buy home baking and wear something blue with their uniform to support this initiative. Home baking will be sold by senior pupils at the Barista area, to promote the launch.
Friday 2nd February we are having a non-uniform day to raise awareness and funds for three charities. Pupils have the option to choose one of the charities and show their support by wearing a colour commonly associated with that charity. Suggested donation is £1.
A huge thank you to all who donated at our recent Christmas concert. A tremendous sum of £324.12 was raised for the Ayrshire Hospice. A full article and slideshow of images from the conert will be posted here in the New Year. Thanks again.
