|Welcome to MyMarsden Whitby, community site
The final school weeks of the year bring about some delightful but sometimes bittersweet occasions. It is the end of an era for our Year 13 students but we have also just recently hosted next year’s new entrants for the day. “The King is dead. Long live the King!” Earlier this week we held our traditional Nine Lessons and Carol Service, the Year 12s return today form their Leadership Camp and this morning we held our annual Year 13 Leavers’ Breakfast. This is a wonderful opportunity to thank the Year 13 parents for the support and involvement they have had in our school community over the past five or seven years.
The final week of the year is just as action-packed. Tuesday is Prize giving, Wednesday is textbook return day, then community service in the afternoon, and our final assembly is on Thursday morning at approximately 9.15am. School buses will run as normal to the Hutt and Paremata train station at the end of that assembly which is generally around 10.30am. An information sheet about all the End of Year arrangements is once again attached to this update.
It has been, as always, a wonderfully busy and productive year for Marsden Whitby staff and students. To those who are leaving we wish you every success in the future. Our heartfelt thanks to all the school families for your support of the school. We wish you all a very happy and relaxing summer break.
