Marco Di Cesare

Dear members of the Marcellin College Community,
This week we will celebrate our Class of 2021 with a liturgy followed by a Valedictory dinner. I am grateful for the persistence of some key leaders at the College who continually changed and adapted plans as the Government announced each change to restrictions. We took a calculated risk and set our date for this Friday and it has paid off. I am looking forward to celebrating these young men and hope to have some pictures for our last newsletter.
 
Next year marks a significant year for the Marist Brothers, who  will celebrate 150 years in education in Australia. This year will also see us experience an important evolution in the Marist Brothers’ education ministry. I am a product of a Marist Education and am a member of the Marist Association of Saint Marcellin Champagnat. Like you, I appreciate the Marist Charism and the legacy that St Marcellin Champagnat has left to us.   
 
The Marist Brothers, who own our College and 12 other Colleges across Australia, in collaboration with the Marist Association of Saint Marcellin Champagnat, have been working with Marist Schools Australia to  formalise  and  further  strengthen  school  governance arrangements for  Marist  Colleges. This  process has involved close collaboration over many months with the various State and Territory school education regulators.

Game Changers

The Year 10 Game Changers group has been very active recently, participating in both a state-wide retreat day and a social justice project, the Run for Refugees (Kms for Compassion). As our Year 10 Game Changers group has missed out on most of their Christian service opportunities due to lockdown, they took the opportunity to participate on November 21 in the Run for Refugees to give back to some of our most vulnerable members of the community. The fun run was free to enter and the group members set goals of how far they would run, walk, cycle or skate before completing the activity individually. Overall they raised $1066 for the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre which was an excellent effort! We congratulate these young men and their leader, Anna Bell, on the effort they put into finding a way they could make a difference in the lives of those in need.

Please read on the learn more about the Year 10 Lavalla Track Retreat Day, written by Nicola Lacorcia.

On the 12th of November 2021 Marcellin College Year 10 Game Changers group participated in the Lavalla Track Retreat Day. On the day we were split into groups with other Marist schools state-wide. During the day we participated in many different activities. We worked in small break out groups with other schools and all got to contribute our own ideas and then feedback to the larger group. Having the opportunity to work with other schools allowed us to socialise with and hear the thoughts and opinions of other students, including those of girls and students from rural areas.
