Marsden Family

The minute you walk in the door, whether as a student, past pupil (Old Girl) or as a parent, you become a member of our community and a special part of the Marsden family. Our family is important to us.

Marsden Parents' Association

The Marsden Parents' Association is the organisation for parental voice and support of the school. All parents are automatically members of the Association.


The MPA mission is to: 


  • Develop a positive and welcoming climate for all parents
  • Work closely with the school in meeting its current needs to support the interests, well being and educational advancement of our students.


Many volunteers assist at Marsden each year and all help is really appreciated. MPA run events include:


  • Guest speakers
  • School Dances Y7-Y13 and the Primary Disco
  • Catering for Open Days, Carol Service supper
  • Specialty events such as Picnic on the Lawn, Dads' Night, High Tea and other social events for parents
  • Bi-annual Gala
  • Leavers' Ball

We'd be delighted if you wanted to help in some way. Fill out the online MPA Volunteer form and someone from the MPA will be in touch with you. 

For contact details and more information go to our MyMarsden pages and to keep up with what's we're doing, follow us on our Marsden Parents Facebook page.

Marsden Old Girls' Association

The Marsden Old Girls' Association is an enthusiastic and active group within the school community.


In 2007 Marsden initiated the Marsden Hall of Fame to celebrate and acknowledge Marsden Karori's high achieving Old Girls. These Old Girls have achieved prominence in a wide range of fields, including business, science, arts, sports, community. Each year new laureates are inducted in the Marsden Hall of Fame.


Another highlight for our alumni is Old Girls' Day normally held in October. It is a chance for our past pupils to spend a day at school, reconnect with classmates and see how school has developed.

For contact details and more information go to our MyMarsden pages. Also check out the Marsden Old Girls Association Facebook page for news of Old Girls.


We encourage our Old Girls and parents to visit MyMarsden.


MyMarsden is the school's daily management site that includes information, news and events for Old Girls and Parents' Association as well as other interesting bits about what's happening at school today.
