Cultural Awards

THE CULTURAL AWARDS EVENING
This is held in the Auditorium in in the last week of Term 3 to recognise the talents and achievements of students across the cultural aspects of the school. Colours, Certificates of High Achievement and Certificates of Service are awarded annually in recognition of cultural achievements. There is also an award for Service Colours. 

This is an opportunity for us to acknowledge cultural excellence, commitment and service and to thank those who volunteer their time to assist with culture at Marsden.

In addition to the above awards, there is also:
The Sophie Evans Cup for Performing Arts: This is awarded to a student who has excelled as an individual in her chosen cultural activity, both within and outside of school.

The Old Girls’ Cup for Cultural Involvement: This award reflects the contribution by a senior student to the Primary, Middle, Upper and Senior Schools in regards to cultural activities. It may be for performance or for assistance behind the scenes.

The Thurlby Cup: This award is presented on behalf of the Bowie family for achievement in cultural activities.

The Year 11 Speech Cup: This is awarded to a student in Year 11, based on an NCEA assessment completed earlier in the year.

Honours Bars: these are awarded to students who have been selected to represent their country, for example through performance with the New Zealand Secondary Schools’ Choir.

Students are nominated by staff, based on the records kept of their involvement. They may also nominate themselves. Consideration is given to cultural activities both in and out of school time, such as music examinations, selection into national youth choirs or orchestras etc.

Please contact Cultural Coordinator Sarah Wilson via email by the middle of Term 3 if you feel that your daughter has an achievement that could contribute towards an award at this level.
