2022 Dux announced at Prizegiving

Marsden celebrated the achievements of our 2022 Year 11–13 students with a special prize giving at the Pipitea Marae.


Congratulations to Marsden Dux, Jade Stapleton, who has completed a stellar year, achieving outstanding grades across all her subjects. Our Proxime Accessit (runner-up to the Dux) is Shuhan Yi, who was unfortunately not with us for prizegiving as she is currently overseas. The Kindness Cup, our highest character award, went to Yuki Man.
