The Formal is still a while away, but a number of Year 12 and 13 students do not meet the criteria to attend already. Are you one of them?!
The Marlborough Colleges' Formal for Year 12 and 13 will be held on Friday 11 September - to be eligible to buy a ticket, students must have shown they are committed to their learning and are responsible citizens of either College. Students must therefore:
1. Have a good work record and good school reports 2. Have completed all NCEA assessments 3. Have returned all outstanding text books 4. Be wearing correct uniform 5. Have NO unexplained absences for the year
The above information was outlined in the first newsletter of the year. Please do not expect teachers to give you extra chances, the conditions above are clear. Get any outstanding work in now and sort out your attendance if needed.
