Our annual Open Day will take place on Sunday August 30 between the hours of 11.00am to 2.00pm. Meet our teachers, take a guided tour of our facilities and experience Marymede Catholic College first hand.
In this edition of 'Meet the Teacher' we speak with Mrs Nicole Lawrenson from the College Administration Team.
Name: Nicole Lawrenson - Personal Assistant to the Deputy Principals - firstname.lastname@example.org
What is your role at the College?
I am the Personal Assistant to the Deputy Principals - Liz Crane (Primary) and Robyn Roberts (Secondary)
Provide us with a 'snapshot' into your daily routine at the College.
For me, a normal day at the College would involve providing secretarial and administrative support at a leadership level for both Deputy Principals. This often includes meeting co-ordination, diary management, adminsitrative support at meetings, answering phone calls and providing additional administrative support as required.
What do you love most about working at Marymede Catholic College?
Seeing students being provided with opportunities to reach their full potential and knowing that in some way, I may have contributed to that.
Favourite Food: Lamb
Favourite Movie/TV Show: The Blind Side & The Green Mile
Hidden Talent or Something We May Not Know About You: I keep chooks and sheep! I also have a beehive.
Favourite Sporting Team/Athlete: Whittlesea Eagles FC - Under 10's and Under 17's (because my two sons play in those teams) and the Whittlesea Netball Club Rockets Under 13's (because my daughter plays in that team).
If You Could Pick Any 3 People as Dinner Guests, Who Would They Be and Why?:
Freddie Mercury - I'm a Queen tragic and a child of the 70's!
Russell Brand - For a bit of light hearted comedy with a twist.
My Dad - He passed away 5 years ago and there's so much that he's missed that I want to share with him.
Construction works on our new Marymede Trade Skill Centre commenced in June this year and have progressed smoothly, despite workers encountering large amounts of rock during the excavating process in addition to inclement weather conditions.
The steel frame for the building is now 90% complete and we anticipate the pouring of concrete to commence within the next fortnight. Once the building flooring has been completed, remaining construction works will progress extremely quickly, which will allow for the building to be complete prior to the conclusion of the 2015 School year, with classes ready to go by 2016.

Marymede Catholic College would like to thank all those in attendance at our 2015 Primary School Family Maths Night on Tuesday July 21, 2015.
It was a great sight to see so many of our parents learning with and from their children!
Students from Prep to Year 5 have recently been involved with Mathematics Inquiry culminating in entries for the Maths Talent Quest hosted by the Mathematics Association of Victoria.
Parents who attended the Family Maths Night were able to see and share in these investigations with their children and also participated in a range of fun maths games and activities throughout the evening in each of our Primary School Houses.
This event was a great success. Parents and students participated enthusiastically and were able to experience mathematics activities which could easily be continued at home.
We look forward to next year's event with great excitement!
