Principal's Message

Mary-Jeanne Lynch —

Mehemea ka moemoea ahau, ko ahau anake. Mehemea ka moemoea tātou, ka taea e tātou.

If I dream, I dream alone. If we dream as a collective, we can achieve our dream - Te Puea Hērangi.

As we head into the weekend to celebrate Matariki, we are reminded of what Matariki is all about. It is a time to celebrate new life, to remember those who’ve passed and to plan for the future. And it’s a time to spend with whānau and friends – to enjoy kai (food), waiata (song), tākaro (games) and haka. We were really delighted to have a small gathering this morning at school to celebrate Matariki, and a huge thank you to Arlie Bates, our Manutaki Māori and our Manukura Te Ao Marama for organising a series of events here at school. 

As we head into the end of Term 2 and our first semester courses, it's a great time to reflect on our achievements so far this year, and to reset our goals for semester 2. A small group of us were very proud to represent the school last Friday at Te Hora Marae, where our iwi partners, Ngāti Rārua, Ngāti Kuia, Rangitāne and Ngāti Toa Rangatira, shared Ngā Kōrero Tuku Iho | Cultural Narratives with us.

A huge thank you to all our student leaders and staff who make Marlborough Girls' College a great place to be. Your commitment to our making our vision that everyone learns and achieves their potential at MGC is powerful. Enjoy your Matariki celebrations with whānau and loved ones.
