The safety and wellbeing of our students at Marymede is very important to us.  We are very fortunate at Marymede Catholic College to have an on-site provider of Before and After School Care provided by Camp Australia. 

This service provided by and administered enables parents/guardians to access care for their primary school aged child/ren in the mornings and afternoons outside of the times that teachers are on supervision duty in the College grounds. 

Before School Care provided by Camp Australia runs from 6:30am – 8:45am, Monday to Friday and After School Care runs from 3:15pm – 6:00pm, Monday to Friday.  Before and after these times, there is no supervision provided by the College on the College grounds. 

The teachers commence their yard duty supervision in the playground at 8:20am and it concludes at 3:40pm.  Unless a student is attending Before School Care and/or After School Care, no students should be on the College campus before 8:20am or after 3:40pm.

Any primary student who is on the College campus before 8:20am will be taken to Before School care where they will be supervised until 8:45am. Camp Australia will charge parents for supervision of their child/ren.  

The same applies to any students who are not collected from the College campus by 3:40pm.  They will be taken to After School care, where they will be supervised until they are collected by a parent/guardian.  Camp Australia will charge parents for supervision.  

Primary students are unable to use the College Library as a before or after hours supervision area, unless they are supervised by a Parent or Guardian.   Primary students with Secondary school siblings are unable to be supervised by their Secondary school sibling in the library and would also need to abide by the above.

In THE WEDDING SINGER, it's 1985 and rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey's favourite wedding singer. He's the life of the party, until his own fiancée leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. Only trouble is Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever.

With a brand new score that pays loving homage to the pop songs of the 1980s, THE WEDDING SINGER takes us back to a time when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up, and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room.

Tuesday March 8 was International Women's Day. A chance to show respect, appreciation, and love towards women whilst celebrating the economic, political, and social achievements of women across the world and throughout history.

In recognition of International Women's Day - Marymede Catholic College held our first International Women's Day Dinner on Thursday March 10 with guest speaker Dr Michelle McIntosh from Monash University.

Dr McIntosh leads a team of Scientists at Monash University who are working on developing an inhalant form of Oxytocin so that the lives of thousands of women each year in developing countries can be saved during childbirth.

About 287,000 women in 2016 will die during or after childbirth and 99% are these women are in developing countries. Oxytocin works to stop haemorrhaging – a major cause of death during childbirth. The World Health Organisation recommends that every woman at every birth is given an injection of Oxcytocin and if that were the case, over a 10 year period we could prevent over 41 million cases of haemorrhages with 1.4 million deaths prevented. Currently however, Oxytocin needs to be refrigerated and administered intravenously. Dr. Michelle’s team hope to make it portable, non-refrigerated and inhaled. 

This will revolutionise medicine for pregnant mothers and make a huge difference across the world.

In addition to discussion on her research, Dr. McIntosh made a few key points which resonated well with students:

  • When thinking about what to do with your life, always follow your passion – if you love what you’re doing the jobs will come;
     
  • You never stop learning – what Dr. McIntosh has learned over her working life is that every step of the way she has had to learn new skills and gain new knowledge that she had no idea she was capable of when she was in Secondary School or as an Undergraduate; the skills are part of being a Scientist and include being an independent thinker, critical analyser, and constantly questioning.
     
  • Grab the opportunities that arise and run with them – but always follow your heart.

Marymede Catholic College would like to thank Dr. Michelle McIntosh for her time and wish her all the very best in her future research.
