Leadership, belonging and affirmation of the individual, together
with Christian values, places your primary age girl in an environment
of wellbeing that's a cornerstone to learning at Marsden.
Ask the girls why they love it here and they'll tell you how they are
encouraged to be the very best they can be. There's immense pride
in being here and in the uniform they wear.
The girls are handed the building blocks to learning at a critical age.
A passion for new discoveries and new skills is cultivated while they
are still open and eager to give it their best.
Come along to see the Primary
School in action for yourself
and how learning is all
pleasure. No need to book.

It's groovy to play in the orchestra.
That was one of the messages schoolchildren
received at an orchestral workshop last week.
The one-day workshop gave young musicians a
taste of what being in an orchestra means.
Sue Jane, who runs the Raroa Normal Inter-
mediate orchestra, organised the event for year 5
to 8 students who played in the orchestra, or any
She brought in musicians from the New Zealand
Symphony Orchestra, a composer from Sounz and
other people from within the music industry.
I wanted to really promote a wide variety of
instruments,'' Ms Jane said. To promote orches-
tral instruments. To make it groovy to play the
violin or cello.''
Children from Raroa, Newlands Intermediate,
Johnsonville School and Khandallah Primary
attended the workshop.
The day began with presentations from each
school, where children could get up and perform.
Danish Ahmad Shari, 9, said although he was
nervous, it went well. It was very good. I had to
get up the front and talk,'' he said.
Daniel Linklater, 12, said the morning session
with members of the New Zealand Symphony
Orchestra was the most enjoyable part. We were
watching and learning about their instruments.''
Patrick Curran, 11, also enjoyed listening to the
professionals. They told us the history of their
instruments and about themselves.''
William Young, 10, said the best part of the day
so far had been morning tea, because you can do
anything you want, play around on all the
instruments and stuff''.
Ms Jane said the day had been so successful she
was considering making it an annual event.
She said she hoped to encourage the children to
keep up their orchestral instruments, because it
was around intermediate school age that interest
began to wane.
I want them [the children] to continue this
theme. We want them to stick it out.
You don't need to be lead guitarist in a band to
be an out-there groovy musician.''
