Congratulations to Laura Daniele (Year 11) who was recently announced as 1 of only a limited number of students across Victoria to be invited to attend the National Schools’ Constitutional Convention to be held in Canberra and attended by the Prime Minister across March 20-22, 2018!

Laura was given the opportunity to attend local and State conventions recently as part of her VCE Legal Studies classes and after enjoying taking part in the initial conventions felt encouraged by the opportunity to apply for the National Convention.

As part of her application, Laura wrote a small piece on the Australian Constitution as a whole and why she believes it is important for all Australians to learn about their Constitution. 

Laura is a keen participator in her Legal Studies subject and particularly enjoys gaining in-depth knowledge about the inner workings of the Australian Government and how she as an Australian Citizen can affect new laws which will shape the country for years to come.

Congratulations Laura!

Congratulations to Jamie-Lee Mathews (Year 8) who was recently selected to represent the Victorian Under 17 Women’s Softball Team at the upcoming National Softball Championships which are set to take place in Sydney throughout January 2018.

It all began around 4 years ago at the age of 10 for Jamie-Lee, who attended a local ‘Come and Try’ day at the suggestion of her Mother, Gail. “Mum was a Softball player herself and really enjoyed the game when she was younger, so was very excited when she saw the ad for the ‘Come and Try’ day” remembers Jamie-Lee.

Jamie-Lee, who is the youngest player in the recently announced Victorian Under 17’s squad, is also a member of the Marymede High Performance Academy and plays outfield and third base for her local team the Monarchs in the Northern District Softball Association. 

Away from School, her Softball schedule consists of four training sessions per week along with additional fitness programming and Marymede High Performance Academy commitments.

She cites the biggest challenge of the game to be reading the ball. “Whether you’re batting or fielding, you never know the true direction of the ball and constantly need to be paying attention whilst being aware of the game situation”.

Jamie-Lee hopes that her own sporting endeavours will one day lead her to the College World Series in the United States of America followed by a long and successful professional career in the game.

For now, however, her sights are solely focused on the upcoming National Championships in early 2018 and she is happy to offer the following advice to other young aspiring athletes: “Just have fun. Give it everything you’ve got. Have no regrets when you play and leave it all out on the diamond, field or court!”.

Marymede Catholic College congratulates Jamie-Lee and wishes her all the very best in the upcoming National Championships in Sydney.

On Tuesday 19th September Year 11 and 12 students met John Maher, a Ballarat father who for the last 20 years has been travelling around the country sharing his family’s tragic story of loss involving motor vehicles, to ‘drive home’ the message of dangerous driving.  

Each time we get behind the wheel of a car we are facing risks. The risks are particularly elevated among teenage drivers due to inexperience, fatigue, distraction, excess speed, and drink driving.  All of these risks can lead to life threatening and deadly motor vehicle accidents.  

His one hour seminar moved many of us to tears as we heard the tragic story of the loss of his 18 year old daughter, Carmen, who died at the wheel of her car only 5km’s from their home. Carmen fell asleep at the wheel. “We can’t give her a cuddle. We can’t tell her we love her,” said John as he reminded our students that they are the most important people in the lives of the people around them. He expressed that a car crash is a life changer for everyone and a parents loss of their child is almost impossible to live with. His message was clear, “Make good decisions as road users and be aware of the dangers of fatigue”.
