Senior School | MT2023 | Week 8

Dear Parents,  


I will use this newsletter throughout the year to keep you informed of activities, trips and other events that are happening around the College.  It is worth all parents bookmarking the news page of the website, as this is where you will see more detail and some photos of these items.  The latest Senior School write ups will be on the Straits Football, An Eerie evening and the Lectern Club.


Last weekend’s Straits tournament was a wonderful advert for our pupils in so many ways.  The star performers and winning teams will get a mention on the news page, but I wanted to mention some that perhaps won’t get the main plaudits, but showed what we expect of a Marlburian:

  • Max, Amber, Azhara, Hailey and Zaid for throwing their bodies in the line of fire as goal keepers and then picking themselves up and doing it again to keep their teams in games.
  • Liam for showing leadership in calming a situation that was becoming fraught, not just with his own team but with the opposition as well.
  • Kitty for making many exhausting runs down the wing to try to get the goal her team needed.
  • The penalty takers for their calmness under pressure as it seemed every game was finishing tied and needing a shoot out.
  • The U18B girls’ team for celebrating every successful penalty in the shoot out as though it was a winner.

This is not an exhaustive list, and I am sure there were others demonstrating these attributes that I didn’t see – we are proud of all the pupils who represented MCM at the tournament.


Just a reminder that next Thursday is Nations’ Day.  Pupils may dress in national dress or national colours, but must not wear sports kit.
