Seniors Last Day

Marlborough Girls' College —

Last Wednesday marked a bittersweet farewell as our Year 13 students bid adieu to their school journey.

The day was filled with memorable moments, beginning with the heartfelt Leavers' Assembly, where students were honoured with presentations and the Year 13 cohort serenaded the audience with their Leavers song. As a symbol of growth and continuity, a native Kowhai tree was planted, and the students received puti puti - weaved harakeke flowers. The traditional hand printing ritual left colourful imprints on a wall in their house colours.

A touching highlight of the day was the Year 9s forming a guard of honour, guiding the Year 13 cohort on a sunlit stroll down to the Taylor River amphitheatre, pausing for cherished photographs along the way. At the amphitheatre, Mayor Nadine Taylor shared her well-wishes for the graduates' bright futures.

The day culminated in our senior academic prize giving, celebrating the remarkable achievements of our graduating seniors. It was a day filled with treasured memories and hopes for a brilliant future as our leavers embarked on the next chapter of their lives.
