Free concert - Marsden Swainson Memorial Concert 10 August

Inge Doig from Samuel Marsden Collegiate School

You are warmly invited to Marsden's Swainson Memorial Concert/Music Competition. This is a wonderful evening showcasing the musical talents of our students. The Betty Swainson Memorial Music Competition prize is awarded each year in memory of Frances Betty Swainson, a former pupil (1922–1926) who died in March 1974. The prize was endowed to mark the School’s centenary in 1978 and is awarded for excellence in musical public performance on any instrument or voice. This popular competition is held in conjunction with the Nell Clere Scholarship and the prize is awarded at the Cultural Awards Evening. The Nell Clere Scholarship is a monetary award to allow the recipient in Years 7–12 to continue her music tuition.

Poll: Do you support the rules to build new homes?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Tens of thousands of new homes could be possible in Wellington after a major bipartisan housing announcement from Labour and National.
A new bill supported by both major parties strips red tape from the building process in an effort to accelerate medium-density housing.
The rule change will allow people to build up to three homes of three storeys on most sites in Wellington without any need for resource consent from August 2022.
Tell us what you think and if you do not want your comments used put NFP.
