Welcome to Term 4! I hope all our Marsden Whitby families enjoyed the recent break and managed to spend some quality down time together. We will be going into full Summer uniform next week and, if you need a reminder about what this means, the details are in the front of the student planner.

Term 4 is a busy, celebratory term and so it is worth mentioning now our expectations for everyone regarding the two biggest events – NCEA examinations and end of year Prize giving.  Students will be able to come in and study at school/see teachers during the study leave period and Ms Morgan has provided more information about that later in this Update. It is ESSENTIAL, however, that students sign in and out of the School Office each time they come in and that they are in full school uniform when they come on site, for whatever reason.

Our annual Prize giving takes place on Tuesday 5 December. All students come to school as normal and, after registration, we travel across to Te Rauparaha Arena for a full school rehearsal. Everyone returns to school and is then dismissed for the afternoon; there are no classes. This is because we expect every student to attend that evening for the Prize giving which starts at 7pm.

We also hold a special New Entrants Day later in November, but if you know of anyone who is interested in Marsden Whitby please let them know about our Open Day, next Sunday 29 October, 11am-1pm. Regarding new families coming to Whitby next year, if you have a rental property, or know of someone who does, and are looking for tenants please contact Lorraine.rose@marsdenwhitby.school.nz as we have a family re-locating to Whitby from Auckland and they are finding it hard to source accommodation in the Whitby/Paremata/Pauatahanui/Pukerua Bay/Porirua area.
