Information on MMR Vaccine

Many people between the ages of 16-29 were not fully immunised as children and may be at risk of catching and/or spreading Measles.  The MMR vaccine is free for people aged 16-29 years of age.

This is conveniently available from both Unichem Marsden Village Pharmacy (ph: 476 9944) and Unichem Karori Mall Pharmacy (ph: 476 9540).  No appointments are necessary.  A consent form will need to be completed and after receiving the vaccination you will be required to wait 20 minutes.

Please see the attached factsheet and poster for more information.

Towards 150 - Marsden Foundation

Although 2028 is still a little way off, we are already embarking on an exciting journey towards our 150th anniversary.  One of the first key milestones on our journey Towards 150 is to establish the Marsden Foundation. The Foundation, and its members, will form part of a group of dedicated individuals and families committed to the long term prosperity of the school.

The success of the Foundation in raising funds will be enabled by the partnerships and relationships we have with all parts of the community – and we would like your help. We are seeking expressions of interest from Marsden Parents who would be keen to be inaugural members of our Foundation Board. The Marsden Foundation Board will work alongside the Principal, the Marsden Development Office and the Management Board, to explore many and varied ways to achieve our goals.

Members of the Marsden Foundation Board will be fundraising champions.  We are excited by the opportunity that the establishment of the Foundation will bring us, in engaging with our whole community in this meaningful work, for the benefit of both current and future Marsden students.  I invite you to get in touch with over the next week or so if you are interested in discussing this opportunity.
