Milestones at Marlborough
A huge thank you to the entire school community who came together to celebrate our 40th Anniversary a little over a week ago. It was a fantastic day with so many past students, parents and staff returning to the school to celebrate and reminisce about the time they spent here. It was clear to see that many special memories have been formed here over the years, and the 40th Anniversary Celebration will certainly be a great memory for all of us that were here.
I would like to thank everyone in the communtiy who put in a great deal of time and effort to make the day a great success.
The students' art work was amazing, which is a great credit to their creativity, effort and the skill of Jenelle Seregin to develop these skills. One of our special guests for the day, Heidi Victoria, is the Shadow Minister for the Arts and she commented on the exemplary art work and the exceptional work by Jenelle.
The memorabilia gallery was absolutely incredible and it was so lovely to see former members of the Marlborough community finding their photos and reliving the times they spent here. The work put in by Prue and Cherie to get the photos and artefacts organised and presented so professionally was amazing and I would like to really thank them for the incredible amount of work they put in. The archiving work they did will not be lost and we will store it well so it is ready for our 50th Anniversary celebrations in 2026.
Joell did an incredible job running the Devonshire Tea area and this was such a lovely addition to the day. Providing a lovely space for people to catch up over a lovely cup of tea and a scone was great.
Finally I would like to give a huge thank you to everyone who helped set up, pack up, work on the barbecues, organise art-work (thanks Felicity), promote the event (thanks Natalie), baked biscuits or scones, worked on the biscuit stall or at the Devonshire tea and everything else that everybody did to make the day a great success.
