We we have started with some fantastic news…..
On the 29th September 2017 we held our annual McMillian Coffee Morning and we managed to raise a staggering £650 in just under two hours. Thanks go to all those, and you know who they are for the incredible donations, working hard on the day as this was the main reason we did so well.
Congratulations Nieve and Libby!
Nieve and Libby found themselves in the local paper as the best dressed Halloween visitors to the Congleton Leisure Centre. This is the second year that the sisters have found themselves in the paper with the best outfits.
We are glad our school uniforms don’t look like this each day!
Marlfields pupils help raise over £500 for McMillian Nurses
Ellie and Sam worked fantastically as Head Boy and Head Girl to raise over McMillian nurses. With the support of the School Council they started the day with meeting and greeting guests for coffee and cake, then went on to organise sponsored bounce races for each class to find the winner. Each child who took part took home a small super bouncy ball and that ‘good’ feeling of helping those in need. Everyone had a brilliant time during the day and this picture is a repeat of the one taken at M&S Food, Congleton as they were kind enough to donate chocolate cookies to the event, they were yummy, pop into the store and get some is our tip to you!
Marlfields pupils think of others at Easter time.
Marlfields pupils collected eggs for the Silk FM Easter Egg appeal and over 300 eggs were donated to the radio station from the pupils. When they were collected the raido representative said that he had never collected so many from one school and thanked the school for their kind thoughts to others at this special time of the year.
Charlie and Cori are seen below with just some of the eggs which went to children who would not otherwise get an egg this year.

For the London 2012 Olympics, Congleton wanted to create a logo for the town. A competition ran to design the logo and this was won by Marlfields Year 5 pupil, Cheyanne Vandam. It is still used by the Town Council to promote community events.
WE DID IT!!
In April we won the ‘School Bake Off’ competition held by Grain Chain and we met Paul Hollywood, who we baked with.
