8 August 2015 was a momentous day in the history of our school. On that day a new Trust Deed – the Saint Mark’s Church School Trust – was signed. This is the change that I indicated was coming in my Chairman’s speeches and reports at the end of 2013 and 2014. Up until now St Mark’s Church School has operated under the auspices of the St Mark’s parish church (and more recently under the auspices of the Wellington Anglican Diocese). Now, for the first time in 98 years, we are our own independent legal entity. The next step will be for us to be incorporated as a charitable trust. Read more »
This week at assembly we had a special guest. Jack Pearce of 3LM processed into Assembly with myself, Mr Finnimore and the Prefect Team. After a brief introduction the official principal responsibilities and duties for the day were handed over to Jack who was “Principal for the Day.” Jack’s grandparents won the auction at last year’s gala so Jack could be the Principal and Mr Pearce (or Principal Jack) did a splendid job. So Jack’s first official duty, wearing his Headmaster gown, was to preside over assembly with Mr Finnimore. He was shaking hands and making comments to the assembly. He had a very full day with several business meetings, a business lunch at McDonalds, a Health and Safety and Property inspection of the school. He also read a story to the children in Preschool, visited classes in the primary school, sent an email to staff, sent a message over the school intercom, wrote his ReMarks newsletter contribution and finished the day doing duty after school with Mr Finnimore.
