Old Girls' Association

The Marsden Old Girls' Association is an enthusiastic and active group within the school community. We always welcome news of Old Girls.

MOGA is Social

In 2019 MOGA started a Facebook page and we'd love our Old Girls to follow us.
We'd like to use this page to spread word of our events and help Old Girls keep in contact with each other wherever they are in the world.

Old Girls' Day - Friday 29 October 2021

Old Girls that attended Marsden Year 10/4th Form in years ending with 1 (2011, 2001, 91, 81, 71 etc) this is your year to join us for Old Girls' Day on Friday 29 October 2021. 

This is a special day to reminisce, reconnect with classmates/teachers and to checkout any changes since you were here. For more details see our Old Girls Day page.


The Old Girls’ Association holds the AGM on Old Girls’ Day each year following the assembly to enable as many Old Girls as possible to attend. The AGM features reports and interesting insights from the Principal and the Chair of the Management Board and is your chance to have your say in the running of the Association.  
The AGM will be held at 11am in the Swainson Room, Marsden House on Friday 29 October 2021.   

We will only be physically mailing out AGM papers to Life Members for whom we do not have an email address.  If you prefer a printed copy, please email your preference to Rosalba.finnerty@marsden.school.nz.  

Word from Marsden

Marsden produces a number of printed publications a year (including the WORD from Marsden magazine, and other MOGA material (newsletters, invitations etc).
