As a school community we are often looking to the wider community for learning opportunities, sponsorship, grants and different ways they can help improve our school. However, as a school it is also very important that we can give back to the community. Our Yr 4/5/6 students have done a great job by giving back to the community through the work they have done in their 'Student Action Teams' this term.
In these teams, our students have had the opportunity to work collaboratively to plan different events or activities that would make a positive impact on the wider community. From running activities at child-care centres and nursing homes, to raising money for fantastic charities such as Wesley City Mission, our 4/5/6 students have done an amzing job at giving back.
In partnership with families, our students' first educators, we always aim to develop our students into great citizens who can lead great lives and improve the world around them. We will continue to look for these opportunities and ensure that the learning at Marlborough goes beyond the school's physical and curriculum boundaries.
Families at Marlborough have also shown an incredible willingness to give to others when possible. We have been so pleased to see many families giving generously to the School Assistance Fund. These contributions make a huge difference to helping every child at Marlborough to be able to participate in all school events (including camps and excursions). Any contributions that you are able to make to this fund are greatly appreciated and will directly improve the schooling lives of other students at Marlborough.
