Marymede Catholic College is excited to annouce the introduction of our new Marymede Cricket Academy. The Marymede Cricket Academy will commence here at the College in 2017 for students in Years 4-9. This program will commence in the coming weeks.

This is an opportunity for Marymede’s cricketers to take their sporting performance to the next level through participation in cricket specific clinics running across Term 2, 3 and 4. We are looking for students who are enthusiastic and committed to cricket as well as those wanting to learn how to play the game for the first time.

The program will be delivered by, Cricket Coach, Tim Jessel. Tim has been an integral part of the development of the MCA as head coach. Tim currently competes at Sub-District turf level (Preston Cricket Club) and has played at both Premier and Sub-District 1st XI levels. Tim has also worked with Cricket Victoria in coordinating and coaching Milo In2Cricket programs and with successful SACCSS Premier League winners for a number of years at Marymede Catholic College. He also has the resources to provide additional coaches as required by MCA, including those who have coached SACCSS teams.

The thought of a new School with brand new facilities and more importantly a Catholic Prep - Year 12 establishment sounded pretty amazing.

What is your favourite thing about Marymede Catholic College?

The fact that we can drop off and pick up both our children at the same facility is amazing - it saves us parents a lot of time.

In this edition of 'Meet the Teacher' we speak with Mr. Trent Brownjohn, a member of our Health and Physical Education Teaching Team.

Name: Trent Brownjohn – Secondary Teacher – trent.brownjohn@marymede.vic.edu.au  

What is your role at the College?

I am currently teaching Health & Physical Education and Maths within Years 7-12. I also coach a variety of sports. I live down in the Fitness Centre!

Tell us about an interesting project or topic that you are currently working on with one of your classes?

Currently with my Year 8 classes we are working on the topic of Water Safety. It’s something I am very passionate about as I used to volunteer my time as a lifesaver. I also love anything to do with water – surfing, swimming, scuba diving, fishing, boating. We live in a country surrounded by water but still too many people lose their lives by drowning. 

What is the most rewarding aspect of your job?

Making a difference in someone’s life. It might be a student or even a colleague but to know I’ve helped them in some way makes me very proud. Helping someone learn a new skill, challenging someone or even making someone smile is so very rewarding.

Fast Five:

Favourite Food: Chicken Vindaloo

Favourite Movie/TV Show: Vanilla Sky

Hidden Talent or Something We May Not Know About You: Renovating - I consider myself a 'Handyman'!

Favourite Sporting Team/Athlete: Western Bulldogs, Newcastle United and the Chicago Bulls.

If You Could Pick Any 3 People as Dinner Guests, Who Would They Be and Why?:

Ricky Gervais - Funniest man on Earth! He'll provide the laughs! 

Jason Day - My favourite golfer plus I need some tips.

Jeff Buckley - Favourite artist who was taken too soon. I'd need him to sing to me and the other guests.
