  • ReMarks Term 3 Week 10, 2015 remarks

    It was a wonderful Year 8 Exhibition on Monday evening when our senior students presented their final inquiry of the year to their family, friends, Board members and staff. I was very impressed with the Exhibition display presentations from the students, particularly with how articulate they were explaining their knowledge and understandings – I learnt many new and interesting facts from my discussion with the children! Well done to the Year 8 teachers Mrs Underhill and Mr Finnimore, teacher and parent mentors and all the Year 8 cohort – You have all completed an outstanding term’s work! Read more »

  • ReMarks Term 3 Week 9 2015 remarks

    What a wonderful night it was last Saturday at the Hotel Intercontinental for our biennial fundraising ball, A Starry Night. It was wonderful to see so many friends of St Mark’s enjoying an evening out together with superb food and wine, as well as great entertainment. Our superb MC, Steve Joll from The Breeze, kept the evening going smoothly and acted as auctioneer for our live auction. There was some fierce bidding and once that was over, everyone hit the dance floor. My huge thanks to all of those parents who make sure events like this take place; we could not do it without you. Special mention must go to the SMILE team, and particularly Cherry Kitchingham, who took the lead on the extraordinary decoration of the hotel ballroom and tables. We really were sitting under the stars. I’m pleased to advise that close to $10,000 was raised which is a spectacular effort. Read more »

  • ReMarks Term 3 Week 8 2015 remarks

    Today we celebrated Founder’s Day at St Mark’s. The idea of a school at the Basin Reserve – to be called – St Mark’s Church School – was first promoted on the initiative of the Reverend Coffey, Vicar of St Mark’s Church, in the 1880s. This school, after much consideration, was established 98 years ago, in 1917 by the St Mark’s Parish with the blessing of the Bishop and the backing of the Synod of the Anglican Diocese of Wellington.
