There are many end of year events coming up this term but the biggest one for the entire school community is, of course, Prize giving. This is a COMPULSORY event for all students Y7-13 inclusive. We have a full school rehearsal on the morning of Tuesday 6 December then students are given the afternoon off on the understanding that they are required to attend prize giving that evening. It is at 7pm at Te Rauparaha Arena. Further details will come later this term.
Marsden Whitby parents Danielle and Andrew Leslie, of Progressive Homes, are kindly opening their Show Home for any current Whitby/Porirua parents to come along, share a cuppa and a piece of cake and talk and meet with other parents in a less formal environment. It is also an opportunity to talk about the Parents' Association, its role in the school and plans for this year and beyond. Please feel free to come and if you know of friends or neighbours in the Whitby/Porirua area who are interested in the school please bring them too! I will be there and happy to answer all and any questions about the school. Sunday 6 November, 4pm, 58 Resolution Drive, Whitby.
