Congratulations to John Marshall who has been awarded Honours for Service.
John has immersed himself in the cultural programme since his arrival at St Andrew’s College in Grade 8. He made a significant contribution across so many fields and has undoubtedly raised the profile of culture at College, having been awarded an impressive five CEMA Colours awards in diverse activities.
John has sung in both the Chapel and Chamber choirs, in addition to performing as a soloist regularly from Grade 8 throughout his time at College, with a most remarkable talent and confidence, right up to his rich contributions this year. He has always been willing to sing on any occasion and has played a significant role in innumerable concerts and events, the most memorable being the New Boy Induction Ceremonies, Speech Days, Rainbow Concerts, and the exquisite Dido’s Lament for the OA Tide Remembrance Service.
John also plays the piano at Grade 7 level and has been awarded Colours for his achievements in Music and also for his dedicated commitment and contribution to both the Chamber and Chapel Choirs.
John played the lead role in Sainthood in the Drama Festival and this year played one of the main parts in the Musical Production of The Addams Family. He has performed courageously and with heart and was awarded Colours for Dramatics.
John committed four years of extensive service to the Cawse Library. He has been part of a team that initiated diverse and innovative book displays and ran projects and clubs in the library for the benefit of College boys and other local schools. John has been reliable in his commitments and has mentored library monitors and served in the library with meticulous care, earning him Colours for Library.
John is committed to serving the broader community. He has been involved in many service projects through the Interact Club and served as the secretary of the Interact Club this year. John was awarded a Merit Award for Community Engagement in acknowledgement of his role in diverse activities from Project Rise to collections for those in need. His creativity and his willingness to get involved have been an asset to the projects he has been involved in.
John is always humble, empathetic and fully engaged with the people that he interacts with. He has woven many diverse and beautiful threads into the cultural tapestry of College and he is a most deserving recipient of the Honours Award for Service.
