On the morning of Tuesday february 7, the College held it's annual Leadership Induction Assembly - a chance to acknowledge and induct our 2017 Student Leaders and congratulate our 2016 Year 12 high achievers.

This year, the College was honoured to welcome back Emma Wardell (2016 College Dux) who addressed students and spoke about her journey from Years 7-12 at Marymede Catholic College.

Additionally, we acknowledged and congratulated her fellow graduate Tinotendo Mubayiwa. Last year, Tino was accepted into the 2016 Top Designs Exhibition for his work in Product Design & technology - Wood. Not only was Tino 1 of just 5 to be selected, he is also the first student of African heritage to ever be selected for this prestigious honour.

Our 2017 Student Leaders were presented on stage and together they recited the 2017 Leadership Pledge - written and created by the students themselves.

Finally, the College acknowledged and introduced our Fire Carrier Students and was joined by Ms. Sherry Balcombe from ACM who inducted these students as our inaugural fier carriers.

In May 2017, Marymede Catholic College will proudly present our first ever Junior Production, Seussical Jr.

Based on the beloved books by Dr. Seuss, Seussical Jr. brings characters such as Horton the Elephant and The Cat in the Hat to life in this fantastical musical extravaganza.

Transporting audiences from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGurkus, the Cat in the Hat narrates the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers and dangers, and he must also guard an abandoned egg that's been left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird.  Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.  Ultimately, the powers of friendship, loyalty, family and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!

Seussical Jr. auditions will be held in Term 1, 2017 for students in Years 5-9.
