Congratualtions to our graduating Class of 2014. We wish our students all the very best in their future endeavours.
The second annual IRIS Media Showcase took place on Monday November 24, 2014 and was again a huge success.
Iris was a celebration of creativity, collaboration, achievement and success.
With Media continuing to grow at Marymede, the subject has enabled students to unleash their imagination: Iris, saw our Year 9 students take guests on some strange adventures and gave them a glimpse of their teenage lives; our Year 10 students had viewers on the edge of their seats with suspense; whilst our Marymede Film School students entertained with ‘The Angry Birds Movie’ trailer and their hit new reality TV show, ‘Survive Or Die’;
Iris also saw a live cross to the Marymede Now news program with reports from the Year 11 students about a notorious hacker and a Teacher with a Coca-Cola addiction!
Lastly, guests witnessed pioneering work created by our first ever VCE Media graduates!
This year, Iris contained:
- 22 Films
- 45 Students selected from Years 9-12 Media classes and Marymede Film School
Films, music videos, documentaries, animations, and television shows have the power to bring people together. They are made to be seen and experienced by an audience, this was made possible through the outstanding event that was 'Iris'.

Marymede Catholic College would like to congratulate the 83 Year 12 students who recently graduated from Secondary School, during the week commencing Monday October 20.
Tuesday October 21 saw the last full School Assembly where the official handover was made from the College Leaders of 2014 to the Leaders of 2015. It was an impressive ceremony that saw speeches from our 2014 College Captains, Carlin Sinclair and Jaya Sharma and our 2015 College Captains, Michael Manoussakis and Marisa Bellina.
That evening our Year 12 Graduation evening was held in the presence of our cohort's proud parents, grandparents and siblings. It was an opportunity to recognise the contribution made by the Class of 2014 to the life of Marymede Catholic College.
In the morning of Wednesday October 22 Father Maurie Cooney celebrated Mass for the Year 12 students and staff. It was also an opportunity for the students to express their thanks to Father Cooney as Chaplain of the College for the whole time many of these students were at Marymede.
Finally on Thursday October 23, the now traditional Year 12 breakfast was prepared by our staff and the dress-up parade in front of the whole School took place, much to the delight of our Primary students.
Whilst the hard work is not yet over (VCAA Exams currently taking place) we congratulate the graduating Class of 2014 on their achievements in the past 13 years, and wish them all the very best in their future endeavours.
CONGRATULATIONS CLASS OF 2014!

Our 2014 College Captains address from the final full School Assembly of 2014:
"Good Morning, Mr D’Astoli, Members of the College Leadership Team, students and staff.
Calin and I have some bad news and some good news. The bad news is that this is the final College Captain’s address that you will receive from Calin and I. It is the final time you will receive Calin’s charismatic flair or endure my really bad jokes. This will be one of the final times the Graduating class of 2014 will be presented before you, before they embark on a new journey, away from the school structure of 13 years prior, and it is that we wish you all the best and good luck for the exciting future ahead.
It seems just days ago when most of us first arrived here at Marymede, where Wurrun Common was the car park and everything in between the Middle school courtyard and the Fitness centre was grass and rocks. On behalf of the class of 2014, we would sincerely thank all our teachers for the tremendous effort they have put in throughout the years to ensure we have received the best education, and we admire your dedication to our learning. We would like to offer a wholehearted thank you for sacrificing your time and attention to help us achieve our best. A Tibetan proverb states that “A child without education is like a bird without wings”, and it is through the work of these fabulous teachers that we have become who we are today, and once again thank you.
This year we must farewell our respected Principal Mr. Paul D’Astoli, who has overseen the growth of both our cohort and the school to which we all belong and are a part of. It is through the efforts of those like Mr. D’Astoli, that we have the opportunity to attend a school with the facilities and environment of Marymede Catholic College. Thank you Mr D’Astoli, and we wish you well for whatever the future may hold.
Speaking of the future, we would be remiss if we didn’t recognize the outstanding involvement of the Student Leadership team of 2014 and praise the work you all have done throughout the year, as we all know full well that many College events would not run half as smoothly were they to be held without you all. Saying this, we are nevertheless eager to pass on the reins of leadership over to the next generation of students at Marymede, and hope that they achieve even bigger and better things and progress even further than their predecessors in their roles as ambassadors for the College and paragons of leadership."
Today I would like to conclude with a quote from Albert Einstein, who once said that “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.” So please, continue to try new things those of our peers who finish and embark on the next stage of life beyond school and those of you who continue growing and learning at Marymede."
The Marymede Catholic College’s inaugural ‘Carols by Candlelight’ is being celebrated at the College on Thursday 4th December in the College’s Fitness Centre at 6:30pm (student performers to arrive at 6:00pm).
‘Carols by Candlelight’ is a tradition in Australia, and by bringing this event to Marymede Catholic College we provide an opportunity for the whole Marymede Catholic College Community to come together to celebrate the Liturgical Season of Advent, to acknowledge this most special time of the year and to celebrate the coming of our Saviour. ‘Carols by Candlelight’ will bring students from Prep to 12 together to celebrate the Nativity through scripture, song and drama. There will also be lots of prizes and fun, including a VERY special guest… yes… our very own SANTA CLAUS will be making an appearance so this one is not to be missed!
Family Tickets (includes 2 Adults and 2 Children) are priced at $10 and will be available from Friday 24th October from:
