Happy New Year and welcome to the Friends of MCM Lent Term Newsletter.

We currently publish a Newsletter once a term giving you news on our activities and updates on our upcoming planned events. You can find these and information about Friends on the Friends of MCM page on the main College website.

Looking back into Michaelmas Term, Friends of MCM was very proud to be able to bring back a bright fun filled Christmas Fair. An event sorely missed over the last couple of years. The Prep School was decked in Christmas Cheer and thronged with happy children playing and enjoying the games and activities, with parents and staff shopping up a storm in the gift hall and everyone feasting on the food and drink on offer.

Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make the day such a success.


On returning after the Christmas break Friends of MCM sprung into celebrating the Lunar New Year and Spring Festival. The Green Hall was filled with banners, decorations and lanterns. Traditional Chinese and Korean New Year treats were shared and enjoyed by all.
