We recently received the sad news of the loss of Mrs Lesley Howe, following a short, but brave battle with bowel cancer. Many of you will know her as a parent to 5 children who all attended St Mark's over the years. Others of you will know her as a dedicated member of our kitchen team who served hot meals to our children daily. Lesley had been a member of staff for over eleven years, joining the team in 2008. We are aware of a fundraising campaign to support the family, launched by a friend. Details of this can be found below, should you feel in a position to make a donation. The loss of Lesley has been a shock to the whole school community and we extend our thoughts and prayers to her family at this difficult time.
