The Marsden Business Hall of Fame joint venture with Enterprise New Zealand Trust finished in 2009. So successful was the process of celebrating and acknowledging Marsden's high achieving Old Girls, that we have decided to extend the Hall of Fame to include consideration of those Old Girls who have achieved prominence in a wide range of fields, including business, science, arts, sports, community, etc. It is planned that up to three new laureates are inducted into the Marsden Hall of Fame each year.
