And so the sun sets over Marymount

The sports hall no longer echoes with the cheers of benchball players, the classrooms are empty, the dining hall has served its last pizza, Mr Huggy is recovering at his country retreat, the teachers and activity leaders have all gone home and Mr Squirrel and Mrs Pigeon can once again roam around the lawn without fear of being knocked over by a flying frisbee.

Yes, folks, Marymount 2016 has closed its doors for another summer. And what a summer it's been.

277 students, 26 student hosts, 16 activity leaders, 12 teachers, one welfare officer, one administrator, one boss of lessons, one boss of fun, and one tired but very happy course director.

No doubt, everyone will take their own special memories away from Marymount this summer. Treasure them, keep them close, and we look forward to making lots more in summer 2017.

Here are a few of ours ...

We hope to see you next year. After all, it wouldn't be the same without you.

Shakespeare Hip Hop

400 years after his death, Shakespeare still inspires young minds - see this new take on Romeo and Juliette :)

Comics Workshop

Fashion Workshop

It's Shakespeare week at Marymount

This year we celebrate 400th anniversary of Mr William Shakespeare's death - and hence the Shakespeare Lives! festival. Thus, this week all the workshops at Marymount - from Comics through Drama through Murals to Hip hop - have been inspired by his plays and sonnets. 

The Great Marymount Bake Off!

 Yesterday some of the students tried their hand at baking. 





 We were making traditional Victorian sponge cup cakes with butter cream and jam.




 Here our bakers are carefully pouring their cake mixture into the cupcake cases.

And ta da! Here are the finished products.  They look yummy - well done everyone!
