News

We we have started with some fantastic news…..

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.

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!!

We won the ‘School Bake Off’ competition held by Grain Chain and we met Paul Hollywood, who we baked with.
