Welcome to new students Annabel Burton (Year 1) and Phoebe Solomon (Year 5) – I hope you have settled in well. We have nearly reached the middle of our school year and a well-deserved break. I encourage girls and staff to make the most of their holidays to relax, recharge and reflect.

Next term there are 2 new exciting initiatives being launched at Marsden.

We are starting MASC, our Marsden After School Club, for Marsden Year 1 – Year 8 students, beginning Term 3. Their siblings and staff children are also welcome. Please see details in the year notices of this newsletter.  You can enrol here and we encourage you to do so as soon as possible to secure a place.

We are also starting a Mandarin Chinese language course after school next term, taught by Jing Ying Herrington in our Confucius Classroom. This is a seven week programme for boys and girls Years 6 – 8, the cost is only $70 and places are limited. Again see your year notices for further details. This is a lovely opportunity for children to sample Chinese language and learning in a stimulating environment. Students will learn basic language skills as well as enjoy cultural activities such as calligraphy and paper-cutting.

I encourage you to come along to our Showcase Concert of voice and instrumental in the NZ Portrait Gallery tomorrow, Saturday 2 July, from 1 – 2pm. The Primary Chapel Choir, Zoe Cunningham (cello), Joyce Chan (piano), Tessa Dalgety-Evans (cello) and the Ad Summa choir will be performing. We hope you can come and support our performers, and take the opportunity to view Michel Tuffery’s Exhibition ‘Lost and Found’ before it closes on Sunday.

One of my passions is the importance of lifelong exercise. This is interesting research - Experts Agree: Exercise boosts kids’ brains.

Wishing you a lovely break over the holidays.
