Christmas at St Mark’s Gala – Sunday 23 November, 10.30am to 2.00 pm
After over a year of planning and many meetings and hours of organisation by the Gala Committee, the weekend is finally here! The excellent news is that the weather forecast for this Sunday is predicting a fine day and this means that Father Christmas will have a clear run into the Basin Reserve for his visit to school – and that is very pleasing news for all our little people!
Please do encourage and invite your family and friends to attend and to support St Mark’s as we aim to raise a lot of money for improving our learning environments and providing new resources in both the preschool and primary school. I look forward to seeing many children, parents, staff and friends at school this weekend. Read more »
Prep School Principals Visit St Mark’s
At St Mark’s today we hosted Principals from the Central-Lower North Island for the annual sports fixtures meeting. Here we organised sports fixtures with Wellesley, Scots, Hadlow from Masterton, St George’s from Wanganui, Huntley School from Marton and Hereworth School from Havelock North. It was a very productive meeting and we have secured more opportunities for our children to be involved in sports exchanges with other schools from Year 5 to 8. Watch this space for an announcement on a major international sports trip for our senior netball and rugby teams that Mr Finnimore is currently finalising. Read more »

The Christmas at St Mark’s Gala Committee are delighted to announce that the inaugural Great Ball Run will be held at the Gala on Sunday 23 November, at 1pm. Up to 500 coloured, numbered balls will be released at the top of the school driveway at 1pm on the day of the Gala. The balls will be released by Steve Joll from The Breeze. The owner of the first ball to cross the line as judged by Kath Bier from The Breeze, will be the lucky winner of an iPad mini! Each ball is just $5 each. We would love each family to sell at least 5 balls. As an added incentive, the child/family who sell the most balls will receive a $100 Warehouse voucher. Spread the word and sell to your workplace, extended family, friends or neighbours. We expect this to be very popular so be in quick so that you don’t miss out. Read more »
