Marsden complete the football season
The school football season came too a close on Wednesday 14th March with the team playing the final league fixtures at the fantastic Fishermore facilities. The team played Park B and drew 0-0, then played St Pauls and lost 4-0 and lost 5-0 to Park A. The team worked really well together and showed confidence and ability in difficult circumstances. We finished 7th in the league on 18 points. The girls in the team have the girls football competition too look forward too as part of the Lancashire School Games. The team are pictured below with the new coats sponsored by Ultimate Strength & Fitness.
World Champion Inline Skater Visits School
Jenna Downing a 10 time British champion and a world champion in inline skating visited our school to talk to the pupils about having a champions mindset. She started off in a whole school assembly where she talked about her story how she was kicked out of her local skate park for being a girl, how she went to her first competition was the only girl entered out of 250 and finished last but carried on and tried again till she achieved her dream of becoming world champion. Jenna is the only female skater to have designed and sold her own skates (all the money went to breast cancer care), Jenna suffers from MS (Multiple Sclerosis) which she has never let effect her performance or her determination. She then did a demonstration in which she jumped over Mrs Thompson, then added Mrs Shepherd and then she added Mr Martindale. Jenna then worked with every class emphasising on chasing dreams no matter how big and never giving up in sport, school and life. She then did a skating session with the year 5 children who loved the experience. Hopefully a lot was learnt.

A fantastic performance at the dodgeball competition held at Fishermore High School on Monday 20th November by our Year 6 dodgeball team. They played 3 games and won all 3 games. They played 5 times versus each school then the overall result was counted.
Won 3-2 vs Pendle Primary Academy
Won 4-2 Vs Holy Saviours
Won 2-1 vs St Josephs
Really proud of these 8 children, they represented the school to the highest standard and performed really well. For some of them it was the first time representing the school in any sport.
