RECENT NEWS

 

In this edition of 'Meet the Teacher' we speak with Mrs. Jane Darrou, a member of our Secondary Teaching Team and Head of Humanities.

Name: Jane Darrou – Secondary Teacher – jane.darrou@marymede.vic.edu.au  

What is your role at the College?

My role at Marymede Catholic College is 'Head of Humanities' and this year I am enjoying the classes that I teach which are Year 8 and 10 Humanities, VCE Unit 1 History and Year 8 English.

Tell us about an interesting project or topic that you are currently working on with one of your classes?

I love teaching all my classes and am currently working with the Year 8s on some exciting activities about Medieval Japan. It is always gratifying to teach World War II and particularly Australia’s part in the conflict which I am currently working on with my Year 10 class.

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

For me, teaching is a great privilege. It has afforded me an opportunity to make a big difference to students’ understanding of our world and to support our precious youth to flourish as good people. 

Fast Five:

Favourite Food: Thai Beef Salad

Favourite Movie/TV Show: ‘Silk’ is a favourite series, ‘Foreign Correspondent’ is always interesting and I love a trip down memory lane with shows like ‘MASH’.  I especially enjoy programmes that make me laugh.

Hidden Talent or Something We May Not Know About You: One of my passions is singing. I performed a solo in Fauré’s Requiem for the Archbishop of Canterbury when he visited Ballarat and I ‘trod the boards’ of Her Majesty’s Theatre in Ballarat in musical theatre performances. I’m looking forward to seeing my students in Seussical Jr. 

If You Could Pick Any 3 People as Dinner Guests, Who Would They Be and Why?:

Waleed Aly - Would be great as a dinner guest because I enjoy his wit and his insights.

Emmanuel Macron (Newly elected President of France) - It would be fascinating to meet him and use my French language skills to speak with him.

Sarah Millican (British Comedian) - Another top choice because I like her infectious optimism and brilliant sense of humor.

 

In this week's edition of 'Meet the Parent' we are speaking with Michael Flint, recently announced as the new President of our Parents' & Friends Committee.

Name: Michael Flint

Occupation: Accountant & Managing Director at 'Smart Audit Pty Ltd' 

What year did you join the Marymede Community and what year level/s are your children in?

We joined the Marymede community in early 2010 when our daughter (Laura) was baptized in Marymede's Chapel of the Annunciation. Laura commenced as a student in 2015 and is now in Year 2

Amy, our youngest daughter, will start Prep in 2018.

Why did you choose Marymede Catholic College for your son/daughter's education?

We chose Marymede Catholic College for the benefit of an uninterrupted Catholic education across Prep to Year 12 along with its close proximity to our home in South Morang.

What have been some of your most memorable highlights during your time here at the College?

The Year 1 (2016) excursion to Edendale Farm which I attended as a Parent helper along with the 2016 Primary Choir Concert have been two memorable highlights.

What is your favourite thing about Marymede Catholic College?

The fact that our daughter is getting involved in (and enjoying!) everything that the College has to offer. 

Fast Five:

Favourite Food: Baked Cheesecake

Favourite Movie/TV Show: The Big Bang Theory

Hidden Talent or Something We May Not Know About You: I’m a squash aficionado; I have been playing the game ever since picking up a racquet at the age of 4!

Favourite Sporting Team/Athlete: Brisbane Broncos (NRL)

If You Could Pick Any 3 People as Dinner Guests, Who Would They Be and Why?:

Prince William and Kate - To keep things formal and 'real'!

Ed Sheeran - For some good tunes.

Kermit the Frog - Just to lighten the mood!
