Kits for kids

By Celeste Alexander

Starting school is a proud milestone for any five-year-old. From the new school uniform through to bags, lunchboxes and stationery it’s an exciting time for the whole family as they watch their son/ daughter step into the next chapter of their lives. But for some Marlborough families it’s a tough time finding the money to pay for the school essentials. This is why a local family has

stepped up to establish a registered charity that aims to make the school transition successful, enjoyable and less stressful for those experiencing significant hardship. Meet Michelle Munro, her mother Brenda Munro and her aunt, Margaret Smith. Together these three women have been working hard over the past few months to make ‘School Start First Impressions Marlborough’ a reality, and they are thrilled to have officially launched it last week. Continued on page 2.

Brenda Munro, her sister Margaret Smith, and daughter Michelle Munro have launched charitable organisation ‘School Start First Impressions Marlborough’ to reduce the impact of poverty on the education of local children.
