Dear Members of the Marcellin College Community,

It is somewhat surreal to know we have reached the half-way point of the academic year. I am so pleased that we have been able to maintain onsite face-to-face learning for all students despite some of the challenges schools continue to face as a result of the pandemic. My greatest thanks to our hardworking teachers and staff for ensuring the young people in our care continue to receive a great education at Marcellin College. To our students, who have committed themselves this term to their academic studies and co-curricular programs, well done on the successful completion of another semester and term. Take the break to think about what you would like to achieve in the second half of the year, as well as plan your 2023 program of study.

Last night we concluded our 2023 Subject Selection Parent Information Evenings. Our new Course Guides for Years 9 – 10 and Years 11 – 12 can be accessed via the Learning tab on MyMC. An extensive amount of work has gone into these guides to ensure students are well prepared for their future learning at the College. A reminder that the 2023 Subject & Careers EXPO will be held on Thursday, 14 July from 5:15pm in the Hermitage Building. More information can be found further below in The Eagle.

On Monday, 6 June we celebrated the Feast Day of St Marcellin Champagnat with a mass and assembly. We welcomed Father Jude Pirotta mssp, a Marist who oversaw the Eucharist. It was wonderful to see so many students take Communion on the day. Unfortunately, due to the weather we had to postpone the fair and other activities. We will enjoy these as a whole College in Term 3.

Over the term break work will commence on the refurbishment of the lower floor of the Placidus Resources Centre. The new student wellbeing space will house our College Counsellors, Careers Practitioners and Information Resources. Preliminary works have also commenced on the new Sandra Street entrance, with marking of essential services and site investigations occurring over the past few weeks. As we progress further with our building upgrades and new learning spaces, I will keep you informed of the progress.

I would like to take this time to wish everyone a safe, relaxing and enjoyable term break. I look forward to welcoming all students back on site on Monday, 11 July for the start of Term 3.


St Marcellin Champagnat, Pray for us
Mary, Our Good Mother, Pray for us
And let us always remember,
To pray for one another
