The Parents & Friends Committee at Marymede Catholic College have recently been advised of a safety recall put in place for one of the products sold at the recent Mother’s Day Stall Fundraiser.
 
The product that is being recalled is the ‘Scented Melts and Burner’ (please see image below). The reason for the recall is due to the unpredictability of the burner itself, and the potential for it to overheat or burn the surface where it has been placed.

Any student/family who purchased this gift is asked to please return it to the Primary School Office on Monday May 18 from 8.30am onwards. Upon returning of the item students will be able to select a new gift to take with them (either a Photo Frame or Bracelet).

Should you require further information regarding this safety recall please do not hesitate to contact The Parents & Friends Committee at paf@marymede.vic.edu.au

Recently, members of the Year 12 Media Class of 2014 were invited to return to our College as guest speakers and run a SAT Masterclass/Q&A Session with the current Year 12 students.

The panel, which featured Madeline Lancaster, Nicholas Musto, Rebecca Pannell, Teagan Carlton, Genna Sbaglia and Amy Williams, discussed their triumphs, tribulations, and pioneering achievements of completing VCE Media last year. The panel reflected on what they learnt and gave the current students some invaluable advice on preparing for exams and assessment tasks, and how to succeed in their studies. Our students found the masterclass to be very insightful and motivating and they enjoyed hearing about their former peers’ experiences and successes.

Rebecca Pannell and Amy Williams have both gone on to study Media at Swinburne University of Technology.

Marymede College Captain Michael Manoussakis (Year 12), is currently preparing for the trip of a lifetime after successfully winning a coveted place in the National Youth Science Forum’s International Programme.

Michael, who is 1 of only 44 successful students across the country, will now travel to New Brunswick, Canada on May 8 and will represent Australia at the Canada-wide Science Fair, talking to local Primary and Secondary school students about advancements in Australian science and Australia in general.

Michael’s journey to Canada began some 12 months ago, where he was selected after an initial application and interview to represent the Diamond Creek Rotary Club in the State selections for the National Youth Science Forum in Canberra. This annual Forum gathers the best and the brightest senior Secondary students from around Australia who are seeking to pursue a career in science. During his time in our nation’s capital, Michael visited a variety of science facilities, listened to eminent scientists, and participated in regular debates.

Michael would then go on to write a detailed formal application for the National Youth Science Forum International Programme outlining his passion for Chemistry and ambition to study Materials Science.

Michael’s application was successful and he was subsequently awarded a place in this prestigious programme.

We congratulate Michael on his outstanding achievement and wish him all the very best in Canada.

Primary School Mother’s Day Celebrations - Friday May 8 - Period 1 (8.55am - 9.45am)

Marymede Catholic College would like to invite all Primary mothers to join us on the morning of Friday May 8 and celebrate Mother's Day with your child.

Prep: Mother's Day Assembly
Years 1 - 5: Classroom Visits
Year 6: Guild Sports

This event will provide an opportunity for our Primary School mothers to see their child/children in their classroom or on the sporting field and share their Primary School experience.

Parents with multiple children in the Primary School will be able to visit all of their classrooms during this time.
 
We ask that mothers remain in the outdoor areas e.g. Primary School Courtyard, whilst our students organise themselves for the day and settle into their classroom. Mothers in attendance will also need to allow safe passage for students to enter the Primary School houses. We anticipate this period of the morning to take no longer than 5 minutes. Co-operation during the first 5 minutes of the morning will avoid overcrowding in the open areas of each house/locker bays which can be very overwhelming for students.

We look forward to welcoming our Mother's to the College on this day and take the opportunity to wish all Mums in the Marymede Community a very happy Mother’s Day.
