We are heading toward the end of term at a rate of knots and I am pleased at how focused the girls are, on both their academic work and co-curricular activities.
The Pentangular Tournament held earlier in the week was a great success. “Brilliant” in Sports Director Eliott Brookes’s words. “What made it brilliant”, he said, “was the support from parents”. Thank you so much to everyone for your support - the girls were excited to be involved, it was wonderful to have so many families take in billets, the weather held even though it was cold and our teams did well too: netball won, hockey came second, football fourth, and Marsden got second overall by two points. A special shout out to Arnold Young who cooked 250 burgers by himself, and to Eliott and his team for an event well run!
Michel Tuffery, our Artist in Residence, opens his free Exhibition ‘Lost and Found’ on Monday. You are invited to the opening on Monday night and are very welcome to pop in to see (and purchase) his work, and to view the combined collaborative work he created with students. The Exhibition is on at the NZ Portrait Gallery (close to his famous work Nga Kina on the waterfront) and runs from 27 June to 3 July.
We also have our family focused student concert on in the gallery on Saturday 2 July from 1 –2pm for those who may prefer a weekend visit to the Exhibition. Our Primary students will be performing, as well as Ad Summa choir, our Barbershop girls and there will be a number of individual performances.
Have a good weekend and week ahead.
