Wear Christmas Gear to Bring Festive Cheer

Today 17th Dec we had our 2nd Perfect Fundraiser.  The money raised today was all for Women’s Aid. Staff and Students came to school in Christmas Jumpers, Santa Hats, Tinsel Scarves and Christmas Fancy Dress.

A big thanks to the Prefects and Ms Farrelly for all the festive fun that they brought to the school today and to all staff and students for getting involved and raising money for a worthy cause.

In November We Remember

November is a time for remembering and praying for our loved ones who have gone before us and whose loss we feel. It is a time when we are particularly conscious of those in within our school community in Maryfield College who are grieving and all those families who have lost loved ones in the past year. More than most years, this November will be especially poignant as we remember all those who have died during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Many thanks to the RE Department who have created this beautiful display to help us remember our loved one who have gone before us.

Litter Pick

As part of the Green School’s module, our teacher Ms. Gormley brought our class out on a litter pick of the area around our school for a class. We wore high-vis jackets, and we had litter pickers, gloves, and plastic bags. We picked up a lot of litter in the area around our school, including masks, plastic bottles, pizza boxes, and even tweezers and a make-up brush. We found it surprising and disappointing that although there are public bins, people are still littering. Many members of the public thanked us for keeping our area clean.
