Congratulations to Marymede's own Cameron Hughes (Year 12) who recently competed for Victoria in the 2017 Australian Men's and Mixed Netball Association Championships held in Queensland.

Cameron's U17's team would go on to reach the Grand Final and finish runner-up to New South Wales.

Cameron, who plays the position of Centre, started his Netball journey at the age of 12 after filling in for his sister's Mixed Team competition one evening and has been playing ever since. Although he opted against trying out for the National team this year due to Year 12 commitments, it is a challenge which he may look to undertake in the future with a view to one day representing his country on a tour to traditional Netball rivals - new Zealand.

Congratulations Cameron and best wishes for your future sporting endeavours!




Congratulations to Mr. Doherty and all members of Marcellin House after recently being crowned champions at our 2017 House Athletics Carnival on Thursday April 20, narrowly beating the team in blue (McAuley) for victory!

Success in the Athletics Carnival caps off another marvellous double for Marcellin who were also crowned Swimming Carnival Champions earlier in the year!

Check out a few of the happy snaps below!



Do not miss your chance to experience our inaugural Junior Production SEUSSICAL JR!

Horton the Elephant, the Cat in the Hat and all of your favourite Dr. Seuss characters spring to life onstage in Seussical JR., a fantastical musical extravaganza from Tony-winners, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty.

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!

Tickets go on sale from 9.00am on Monday 24th April 2017.
