Spotlight On: Lectern Club

Lectern Club has now been a core aspect of the Sixth Form experience for six years. It has seen hundreds of pupils attend the Lodge to dine with the Master, Mrs Stevens, staff and their fellow pupils, and hundreds more give truly thought provoking and inspiring speeches on a range of topics. This year marks the final year that Lectern Club under Master Stevens, the founder of the event at MCM, will take place.

“What Parents and Carers Need to Know about Money Muling”

As online transactions become the norm and children have access to online accounts, criminal organisations are now using this as an opportunity to recruit young people to digitally ‘launder’ money online. 

Young people are approached in person or through social media, where the criminals use euphemistic titles like ‘money transfer agencies’ offering cash advances to move money on their behalf. This week’s guide takes a look at this emerging online hazard, highlighting how adults can help.

COMMUNITY

Appeal for Used Uniforms

As uniforms become old and bit snug, though have thankfully lasted to the end of Summer Term, we have two great options for end of term used uniform donations. Outreach is looking for material donations, which means damaged uniforms can be repurposed. Friends of MCM are looking for uniforms that are in resale condition to supplement the Used Uniform Shop. Further details of how to donate are included below.

Outreach

As part of our continuing efforts to support our school charities, we are planning to sell teddy bears at the Christmas Fair this year. In order to make these bears special, and to support worldwide efforts to reduce textile waste, we would like to dress them in clothes made from recycled MCM fabric. If you are planning on throwing away any of your child’s shirts, skirts, dresses or cardigans at the end of the year, especially if your child is moving to a new stage at the College, we would like to ask you to consider donating those items instead.

 

You may leave your donations in the following locations:

  • The Pre-Prep School Reception.
  • The Prep School Reception.
  • The Senior School Reception.
  • The Senior School LRC.

We will accept donations during the final week of term and the first week back in August.

 

Thank you so much for your support with this and every other Outreach effort we have run this year. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me at rngakane@marlboroughcollege.my.

 Ms Ngakane | Head of Senior Outreach

Friends of MCM Used Uniform Shop

The end of term is a great time to have a clear out. Any donations of items in reasonable condition for the Friends of MCM Used Uniform Shop would be gratefully received. Donations can be made via the Pre-Prep and Prep Receptions collection boxes until the 23rd of June. A collection box will be at the Main Guardhouse throughout the Summer Break. Thank you for all your help with this and all other Friends events of the 2022/2023 academic year.

FoMCM CHRISTMAS FAIR SPONSOR

Fresh Australian Christmas Trees

By Thomas and Sharon

Christmas trees have been a tradition for generations. It is the most beautiful evergreen tree with an amazing Fir scent that represents the Christmas Spirit and brings the joy of the festive period, and what better time to start thinking about that essential part of Christmas than now. 

This year we are proud to bring fresh Austrian Nordmann Firs (Grade A) to Malaysia. The Fresh Austrian Christmas Tree originates from an Austrian Christmas Tree Farm that practices Ecological tree cultivation according to the latest ecological principles. Each single tree is handcrafted and cared for naturally. 

It is the perfect gift for yourself, families, customers, business partners, employees and others. It comes with a big surprise and is remembered as a special present by the receiver.
