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.

Originating from Zimbabwe, Tinotenda Mubayiwa (Year 12) brings a distinctive talent to furniture design that merges African and Australian qualities in a product that is both functional and eye catching. 

Tino’s talent has seen him become not only the first student from Marymede Catholic College, but the first from an African background to be shortlisted for inclusion in the 2016 Product Design & Technology Top Designs program.

Using Jarrah,  a uniquely Australian timber with deep rich red tones and Victorian Ash that created shadow lines in contrasting soft straw pink, Tino designed and made a 2 piece product that is both a seat and a storage unit. 

With an eye for visual balance Tino wasn’t content to work just in timber as he was inspired by the fabrics from Zimbabwe that his mother Swiner wore.  Drawing first in coloured pencils he used earth tones that hark back to his heritage as he coupled burnt orange and black stripes.  Few other students would then take the concept further but Tino is a rare talent.  His original design was electronically sent to a printing company in the USA and within 10 days this unique fabric arrived back in Australia. 

He had overcome the technical challenges of making high quality furniture out of wood but sewing was not a skill Tino had envisaged he would also be acquiring.  With his usual calm demeanour he worked intently and the melding of two cultures became apparent to all.  

Tino brings upon the emergence of a new type of designer at Marymede where students from a range of ethnic backgrounds are encouraged to use their life stories and retranslate them into art and design works that surprise, as this seat with storage has the feel of Australia but it could never be as unique without the Zimbabwean influence.

Tino’s product along with a range of other art and design works by talented students in VCE Art, Media, Visual Communication and Design and Textiles will be exhibited at Marymede Catholic College in the recently established Calthorpe Gallery from November 7 – 11. 

Opening Night: Tuesday November 8: 3.45pm – 5.30pm

Marymede Catholic College would like to congratulate to our Secondary Mathematics and Engineering Tournament of Minds team who recently competed in the Australasian Pacific Finals in the Gold Coast and were crowned CHAMPIONS of their division!

This win breaks a 10 year drought for Victorian Schools in the category and is an outstanding achievement for all involved.

To qualify for this event, Team Marymede had to first win the Regional Finals and then the State Finals. The 2016 Tournament of Minds Australasian Pacific Finals were held at Griffith University, Gold Coast on the 15th of October, 2016. Winners from all the states and territories in Australia as well as teams from New Zealand and Thailand took part in the APF this year.

The Maths & Engineering competitors were given the challenge of building a device that would extract a table tennis ball placed inside an inverted plastic cup which in turn was placed on a slant table. The whole setup was covered by a 20 cm open wall and the cup and the ball had to be extracted from above the wall without losing either. The students were giving some bamboo sticks, paper and fishing lines to build the device. The team which extracts the ball and the cup in the fastest time recieves the maximum points. The demonstration of the device has to be incorporated into a performance of 10 minutes. Students were also required to make props for their performance using recycled materials. The preparation time for the script, device, props, explanation of mathematics behind the device and rehearsals was just 3 hours.

In each of the stages (Regional, State and Australasian Pacific), teams must also complete a spontaneous challenge. The students are given three minutes to discuss and one minute to present the solution for the challenge. At APF 2016, the challenge was to identify a moment of time they would like to freeze and the reason for their choice. The teams are judged on their team work, creativity of their choice and explanation.

The presentation ceremony for APF 2016 was held at the dolphin beach in Sea World. The teams relaxed with a wonderful dolphin show put together by the organisers. After the show, with heartbeats rising every minute, Marymede Catholic College was crowed Australasian Pacific Champions in the Engineering Mathematics Secondary Division for 2016 – the first Victorian School to win this division since 2005.

Fun Fact: The last time a Victorian School were crowned champions in this division - Marymede Catholic College did not even exist!

Congratulations to the winning team members - we are extremely proud of your achievements!
