Just about the end of another a hugely productive week of remote learning at Marsden, from Preschool to Year 13! A big focus has been on finding a balance between screen-based and non screen-based learning activities, and on keeping connections and relationships thriving through form time and student-led care groups. We are loving the new features of Google Meets which give lots of different possibilities for interactive and creative online lessons. Thanks Marsden whānau for your positive feedback re our Remote Learning programmes, we will keep it up as long as we need to!! Staff and teachers are available to support you, and a huge shout out to our seniors who are keeping the whole school connected with their fun videos, challenges and running their care groups.
Hi - if anyone has a shed or garage (or part of) they would like to rent for some extra income, I'm looking for space for a small classic car. No power needed, not intending on turning it into a workshop, just need shelter.
