We are extremely fortunate to be able to offer sessional dance to Year 7-12 students at Marymede Catholic College in 2016.

Classes will be offered in many styles such as Hip-Hop, Jazz, Tap, Lyrical, Contemporary and Ballet for Secondary students of all levels from Beginner through to Advanced.

The aim of the lessons will be to increase student’s coordination, flexibility and strength as dancers in a fun and friendly environment with the intention of developing a Dance Program at Marymede.

Sessional dance will be at an extra cost to families in the same way that instrumental music is offered at the College. The cost is affordable and much cheaper than classes in dance studio settings outside of school. Students will be charged $10.00 a week and be expected to pay up front for the Semester.

Students involved in sessional dance classes will have the opportunity to perform at various school events and will also be involved in a dance concert towards the end of the year.

Interested students should submit their signed/completed ‘Dance Enrolment’ and ‘Terms and Condition’ Forms to the Main Reception (Accounts Window) by no later than Wednesday February 17.

For further information please contact Ms Bedford or Ms Turco at the College.


On Thursday February 11, the College held it's 2016 Leadership Induction Assembly which saw this year's Student Leaders across Years 6-12 inducted and our VCE 2015 High Achievers acknowledged.

The Leadership induction ceremony was led faithfully by Fr. Martin Ashe who then handed over to our 2016 College Captains Betsey and Adrian along with fellow leaders to commence their Leadership Pledge.

The College then welcomed back and acknowledged our VCE 2015 High Achievers and congratulated them on their recent academic success. This section of the event was highlighted by an outstanding speech to 2016 students from our College Dux Ms Nakita Costanzo. Nakita's commitment and dedication to her academic studies across both of her VCE years is to be commended and is something which all current students can aspire to.

The assembly concluded with Mr. Kenny's first official address for 2016.

Mr. Kenny's 'Principal's Address'


Having started at the young age of two, Year 12 student Eliza Edwards can’t remember a time when she wasn’t dancing.

And if current achievements are anything to go by, she has a lifetime of dance to look forward to - having recently been one of very few students across the State accepted to perform at the VET Dance ‘Top Class - Seasons of Excellence’ concert, set to take place on Thursday February 25 at the Melbourne Recital Centre.

Eliza was selected to audition for this concert after receiving outstanding results in VET Dance which she completed at Marymede Catholic College in 2015 – finishing with an overall study score of 47 out of 50, the second highest in the State.

To audition, Eliza prepared two solo performances in Contemporary and Jazz dance, with the later earning her selection into this year’s exhibition. “I was pretty nervous but also really excited going into the Audition” says Eliza, who now dances 4 nights a week at ‘Bev Palmer Performing Arts’ in South Morang.

And whilst she loves everything about dancing – “performing, being up on stage and just everything!” she has found her passion to be a particularly helpful outlet during her VCE years – “dancing allows me to express myself and have a small amount of time away from studies and the demands of VCE.”

This year Eliza is undertaking VCE Dance, English, Further Maths, Health & Human Development and Physical Education. She hopes to complete her VCE studies before exploring some options overseas in 2017 and beyond. “I’m hoping to eventually travel the world through my dancing and see where that takes me.”

For now though, the focus is solely on VCE and her upcoming Top Class concert, although she does have some great advice for young aspiring dancers: “Go for it! Just keep dancing and don’t ever let anyone tell you that you can’t achieve something – anything is possible.”

Marymede Catholic College would like to congratulate Eliza on this outstanding achievement and we wish her all the very best in her final year of Secondary school and future dancing endeavours.
