I am looking forward with tremendous excitement to tomorrow’s Athletics Day. This is the occasion which kick-starts the school wide events which are such an enjoyable and integral part of who Marsden Whitby is.
If you are free to come along and watch – Adventure Park from approximately 9.15am – you are very welcome! In addition to morning tea and lunch, please make sure your child brings a school hat and sunscreen and has at least two bottles of water. We are hoping the weather will do its part but if it is inclement weather the entire event will be postponed to Monday 20 February, as per last week’s letter to parents about the event which went out with the Update.
A General Permission Letter for school trips is attached to this Update. In signing this one letter, you will give permission for all school trips and activities which involve less than 35km of travel and/or result in a charge of less than $25 to your account. Trips such as Artsplash, NCEA PE Activities, Geography and Biology field trip and outings to places of interest in the local Wellington area. A separate permission letter will still be required for all trips and activities which fall outside the 35km and $25 limit. Please sign the permission letter and return it to the School Office by Thursday 23 February.
If you do not already follow Marsden Whitby on Facebook please do so as the page contains information about the myriad successes of our students, in and out of school.
