Friends of Lisle Marsden
On Friday 17th March, 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.
The start of the Summer Holidays 2015, brought lots of new arrivals to Lisle Marsden, in the shape of two colonies of Honey Bees.
They have settled in very quickly to their new 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.
We hope the bees will be 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.
