Student Representative

I, Kylie Linthwaite, am pleased to be able to introduce myself as the Student Representative for the Board of Trustees of Marlborough Girls' College in 2018.  Kylie

This is a great honour for me, and I am very excited to take this opportunity head on and learn from all that it has to offer.

As the BoT Student Representative, I will be the voice of my fellow students, and therefore am always eager to hear your input and ideas.  I feel, especially given the upcoming co-location in Marlborough of MBC and MGC, that it is important all students of MGC have the opportunity to have our voices heard.

I will apply myself to the best of my ability to help make a positive difference this year.  My intention is to help my fellow students and ensure they have a safe learning environment where they can continue to grow and develop as strong Mana Wahine.

Kylie Linthwaite - Board of Trustees Student Representative (2017- 2018)

Technical Support

My name is Emily Harman and I am incredibly excited to be the Technical Prefect for 2017.  I am extremely privileged to be selected for this role as it will provide me with many great opportunities throughout the year. One I look forward to most is helping students to enhance their learning through the effective use of technology. This is incredibly relevant as we are now constantly surrounded with technology that is forever changing to provide us with new and exciting ways to enrich our learning.  

A second aspect of my role is supporting various events throughout the year by providing sound and lighting. Over recent years MGC has installed a fabulous tech booth at the back of the hall, with an ever expanding amount of sound and lighting equipment. This allows us to provide quality sound and lighting for assemblies, drama productions, house competitions, semi-formal, and prize givings, along with many other events. Not only is technical support a great way to get involved with a wide range of activities throughout the year, but it also provides students with skills and knowledge they will benefit from in the future.  

Along with the Technical Committee, I also aim to promote the safe use of technology within Marlborough Girls’ College as cyber safety is a key aspect of the wellbeing of all students.

2017 is going to be an action packed year, and I wish you all the best of luck in all of your endeavours!
