This week I was welcomed to Marsden in a unique and truly memorable ceremony.  It was special to share the stirring and heartfelt pōwhiri with my husband, daughter, friends and former colleagues from Melbourne, as I officially joined the Marsden family.  I was welcomed along with almost 100 new students and several new staff members, and I’m sure that they, like me, felt a tingle down their spines from the power of the haka pōwhiri, led with passion by students Tuia Tapuke and Araraina Takuira-Mita.  The opening karanga, that called up those who had gone before us, was a fitting link to the past as I take up a position so steeped in history.  Later, speakers Basil Tapuke and Kura Moeahu spoke of the strength of Marsden’s foundations and the shared commitment of our community to the education of its young people.  Their words captured the sense of community I have already experienced at Marsden.  It was a particular honour to have the beautiful Marsden korowai presented to me by school leaders Bella O’Meeghan and Kate Dobson (Karori) and Liri Salz and Kian Knight (Whitby).  As part of my official commissioning, the Venerable Stephen King read a letter of authority from the Anglican Church on behalf of the Bishop.  Throughout the ceremony, I experienced the traditions and values of Marsden School, the Anglican Church and of Aotearoa New Zealand.  They combined to mark a very special beginning to my time at Marsden.
