Friends of Lisle Marsden

Fund Raising

The Friends of Lisle Marsden raise funds for various resources and projects associated with teaching and learning within our academy. Previous projects have resulted in the provision of portable staging, an outdoor adventure playground and frames for the academy art gallery.

Bag2School Collection

We organised a clothes & shoe collection with 'Bag2School in order to raise funds for our Academy'.

This gave parents and children an opportunity to sort through their cupboards and wardrobes and donate unwanted clothes, shoes, hats, belts, handbags and soft toys.

In addition to raising much needed funds it helped us raise awareness amongst the children of the benefits of recycling and reuse.

A big thank you to everyone for all your support. We collected 425kg of clothing which raised £170 for the benefit of all our pupils here at Lisle Marsden.

Bee Keeping

We have two colonies of Honey Bees at Lisle Marsden which live in hives in our environmental area. Five members of staff have been trained in all aspects of bee keeping, from bee anatomy to the production of honey.

The bees are an excellent educational resource in teaching the children the importance of bees to our eco system and hopefully we may find some budding bee keepers along the way.

A very big thank you goes to the Friends of Lisle Marsden who donated the funds to buy the hives, clothing, equipment and the all important bees.
