Marcellin College - A leader in boys' education

Welcome From The Principal

In Let Us Dream, Pope Francis writes;

“This is a moment to dream big, to rethink our priorities—what we value, what we want, what we seek—and to commit to act in our daily life on what we have dreamed of. God asks us to dare to create something new.”

In his characteristically pastoral way, Pope Francis urges us all to move out by seeing, judging, and acting with the Holy Spirit.  We are called to respond to God’s ever-present challenge: “Dare to create something new.”

At Marcellin College, we understand that a successful school must adapt and change, constantly evolve and ‘dare to create something new’.  Our innovative approach to education is informed by evidence-based learning and teaching that sits within our Catholic and Marist framework. Our Catholic identity and our Marist spirituality make us God centred and give us a world view. We encourage our young men to gaze upon creation with wonder and awe and our pedagogy must reflect that.

Our Marist Mission calls us to spend a great deal of time with young people, with Presence, Simplicity, Family Spirit and Love of Work, and all of this carried out In the Way of Mary. We encourage our young men to ultimately be – Good Christians and Good Citizens.

As St Marcellin never stopped repeating, “When God is on your side, and you rely only on him, nothing is impossible!”
