Marsden girls at Swimming Carnival

Friday 16th February was a warm, sunny day – just perfect for our annual School Swimming Carnival.

As always the Year 12 girls got dressed up for the occasion in fancy dress in their House colours – yellow, red or blue. Other students had face and body paint decorations.

Congratulations to all girls who swam and those who didn’t certainly cheered, sang and encouraged their friends.

Thank you to those boarders’ parents, some who travelled quite long distances, for coming and enjoying the day before taking their daughters out for the weekend.

Overall it was a colourful and noisy occasion and everyone had a great time!

Marsden Weekend Fun

We have just had a very busy weekend with lots of activities!

Friday 9th Feb - many of our girls played basketball.

Sat 10th - a large group of girls played touch.

On Saturday, many girls went shopping and then in the evening I took a group of 16 girls to the Stardust Circus which has been in Bathurst for around 10 days.

It was a terrific show with acrobats, high trapeze, clowns and lots of animals which for me were the highlight of the evening - a beautiful group of 6 lions - the best part being when one lion actually hugged his trainer!  Also monkeys, goats, pigs, dogs and horses. It was a great show and very entertaining - the girls loved it.

Saturday evening Rebecca Ashton (Residential Assistant) took the remaining girls who did not attend the circus to “Macca’s” for a treat and then the usual “happy lap” of Mt Panorama.

On Sunday afternoon some more girls went into town for shopping and then Rebecca took a small group to one of the orchards in Marsden Lane, Kelso for peaches, nectarines and apples.

As it was a pretty hot weekend, the students also had a few dips in the pool to cool off.

Some enterprising girls with Vanessa Cozens (Residential Assistant) borrowed tarps from me as well as using a large sheet of black plastic and copious amounts of liquid soap, had fun “slipping and sliding” on Marsden front lawn to cool off.
