Friends of MCM Summer Term Newsletter 2023
Welcome to the Friends of MCM Summer Term Newsletter, our last edition for the 10th Anniversary year.
We had a busy Lent Term with the Celebrations for the 10th Anniversary continuing with our 10th Anniversary Gala Ball being a highlight along with our 10th Anniversary Community Coffee Morning. More details on these are below.
Lent Term Coffee Mornings
Following our Lunar New Year Coffee Morning, our first Coffee Morning of the term, we held our Digital Awareness Coffee Morning to coincide with the College’s pupil awareness programmes.
Our next Coffee Morning was the 10th Anniversary Community Coffee Morning held in the lovely Marlburian building over looking the Parents Tennis session, where we highlighted a number of activities that run throughout the college community. Some of these are the Barton Farm volunteers, Community Choir, Parents Tennis and Football. We launched the Friends of MCM WhatsApp Community Group where you can find the WhatsApp Groups where these activities are organised.
We finished off Lent Term with our Nutrition Talk from a dietician from Kensington Green Specialist Centre. More details are here along with a link to the presentation.
The Friends of MCM 10th Anniversary Gala Ball
We were very proud to bring to the community The Friends of MCM 10th Anniversary Gala Ball. The Annual Ball was always one of the highlights of the social calendar and it was such a delight to bring it back for such a special occasion. The Wykeham Hall was transformed into a beautiful ballroom and our guests arrived in all their splendour. A grand sum of over RM30,000 was raised through the CAS led Charity Auction and dancing was enjoyed till the early hours of the morning.
The Marlborough Miles
The Marlborough Miles returned on the 23rd March to celebrate the Sultan’s Birthday and was a great event in raising funds for the Tunku Laksamana Johor Cancer Foundation. RM12,063 was donated on behalf of the College Community.
For our upcoming events, we will be holding our Welcome Coffee Morning in conjunction with the Hari Raya Exhibition Week on Friday 5th May, at 8.30 am at the Wykeham Hall. All are welcome. Access to the Used Uniform Shop will be available during the morning too.
