Marymede Catholic College is proud to be associated with Camp Gallipoli: Commemorating 100 years of ANZAC Spirit.

What is Camp Gallipoli?:

Camp Gallipoli Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation established to help reserve, foster and perpetuate the unique spirit of ANZAC commemorations.

Camp Gallipoli is charged with the task of delivering a unique event platform bringing together people from across Australia and New Zealand to commemorate the centenary of the ANZAC landings.

The purpose of the events is to provide opportunity for our youth to support ANZAC day as participants rather than spectators.  The event promises to be an educational, respectful and unforgettably moving tribute to all defence personnel who have served and are serving in War.

Camp Gallipoli provides a unique opportunity to commemorate the service and sacrifice of our forbearers and a chance to ensure we perpetuate the spirit of ANZAC.

Why support Camp Gallipoli?:

Camp Gallipoli aims to educate our young from a memorable and moving platform about the service and sacrifice of the 11,000 Australian and New Zealand soldiers who were lost in battles at ANZAC cove in 1915.

This event provides a unique opportunity for our youth to participate and engage in the centenary commemorations of ANZAC Day actively rather than as bystanders.

Youth today will hopefully never experience warfare on the scale of our forbearers but it is our obligation to establish a transitional process of information to this generation so as to perpetuate the spirit of ANZAC.

In Gallipoli, there was no discrimination, intolerance or prejudice, our soldiers formed a unique bond with is known as the spirit of ANZAC.  The ANZAC spirit has provided the foundations of who we are and what we stand for as a Nation.

In 2015, Marymede Catholic College welcomes our new Principal Mr Michael Kenny into the Marymede Community.

Originally born in South Australia, Michael’s education took place at St. Michael’s College, whilst his initial teaching roles took place at Sacred Heart College in Adelaide, where he taught Senior Economics, Religious Education and Mathematics. The ensuing years also saw him undertake the roles of House Co-ordinator, Domain Leader, and finally, Director of Teaching and Learning. Michael has also spent time tutoring Economics students at the University of Adelaide.

Michael’s initial Principal appointment took place at McKillop College in Swan Hill, Victoria prior to moving across to the west to undertake the role of Principal at Servite College in Perth, Western Australia. During his time in the West, Michael also held positions as the President of the Catholic Secondary Prinicpal’s Association and a member of the Education Committee of Notre Dame in Fremantle.

2006 saw Michael return to Victoria where he undertook the role of Principal at Assumption College in Kilmore.

In 2015 Michael comes the new Principal of Marymede Catholic College with a view to strengthening our position as a leader of education in the Northern suburbs.

Outside of the office, Michael enjoys plenty of quality family time with his wife Cathy and 2 daughters, and is an avid sports fan. Early sporting endeavours saw him play State Amateur League Football in Adelaide whilst also captaining the South Australian Football Association. After hanging up the boots Michael went on to coach the Glenelg under 19’s for two years before prior to leaving for Victoria. Michael is also a regular on the golf course, whilst also taking a keen interest in AFL football, cheering on his beloved mighty Adelaide Crows!

We welcome Mr Michael Kenny to Marymede Community and look forward to his ensuing years as Principal of Marymede Catholic College.
