Students from Years 7 to 11 have volunteered their time to help knit blankets which provide comfort to those less fortunate. On a weekly basis, students have abandoned their usual lunch time to come together to knit. Some expert students have been leaders helping their peers to learn to knit which has fostered a sense of community within the school. Year 9 student Ahmed Amed stated that the environment was ver welcoming for beginners. oing this for the homeless makes me feel good. It’s fun and it is for a good cause”. The level of involvement in the initiative is a testament to the caring culture Marsden High School fosters. Marsden High School Knit In with Wrap With Love Volunteers Mamey Nakhoul Girls’ Advisor Deputy Principal’s Report Year 12 2014 Farewelling Year 12 was a happy/sad event. The whole school assembly showcased the wonderful talent that we have in Year 12. Ms Idrus was heartbroken at the thought of losing her amazing musicians. Melvin Gill’s speech about the importance to him of Marsden and his fellow students was a highlight of the assembly along with the Year 12 music class performances. The Graduation Assembly the following day, was a fitting farewell to these very impressive students. They conducted themselves with the usual grace that we have come to expect of Marsden students. The teachers often feel as much pride as the parents do in watching their students take to the stage to receive their awards and portfolios. On their last night we held the inaugural Year 12 School Dinner at the Ryde Eastwood Leagues Club. The dinner was attended by students, parents and teachers. It was a very happy night, the students looked amazing and there were many proud parents taking photos. The highlight of the night had to be the staff singing Bohemian Rhapsody! Or not! Thanks Connor! A special thanks to the mothers behind the organisation for this wonderful night, Jenny Harrison, Louise Kendall and Karen Walker. Special thanks to Mrs Train, the Year 12 Year Adviser for all her work throughout the last 6 years and in particular over the last few months.
