Marymede Catholic College is proud to announce that Ajay Jay (Year 11) was recently named as a winner of the prestigious Premier's Spirit of ANZAC Award!

To enter and subsequently be named as a winner of this competition, Ajay was required to write an essay on the experiences of soldiers during World War 1. Ajay will head over to Canberra with other winners from across the State, visiting key World War 1 monuments and memorials.

Ajay's success in 2017 continues a proud tradition for Marymede students in this annual competition, following on from victories by Michael Manoussakis in 2014 and his younger brother James in 2015.

Congratulations Ajay on yet another outstanding achievement!

In May 2017, Marymede Catholic College will proudly present our first ever Junior Production, Seussical Jr.

Based on the beloved books by Dr. Seuss, Seussical Jr. brings characters such as Horton the Elephant and The Cat in the Hat to life in this fantastical musical extravaganza.

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!

Seussical Jr. auditions will be held in Term 1, 2017 for students in Years 5-9.

Originating from Zimbabwe, Tinotenda Mubayiwa (Year 12) brings a distinctive talent to furniture design that merges African and Australian qualities in a product that is both functional and eye catching. 

Tino’s talent has seen him become not only the first student from Marymede Catholic College, but the first from an African background to be shortlisted for inclusion in the 2016 Product Design & Technology Top Designs program.

Using Jarrah,  a uniquely Australian timber with deep rich red tones and Victorian Ash that created shadow lines in contrasting soft straw pink, Tino designed and made a 2 piece product that is both a seat and a storage unit. 

With an eye for visual balance Tino wasn’t content to work just in timber as he was inspired by the fabrics from Zimbabwe that his mother Swiner wore.  Drawing first in coloured pencils he used earth tones that hark back to his heritage as he coupled burnt orange and black stripes.  Few other students would then take the concept further but Tino is a rare talent.  His original design was electronically sent to a printing company in the USA and within 10 days this unique fabric arrived back in Australia. 

He had overcome the technical challenges of making high quality furniture out of wood but sewing was not a skill Tino had envisaged he would also be acquiring.  With his usual calm demeanour he worked intently and the melding of two cultures became apparent to all.  

Tino brings upon the emergence of a new type of designer at Marymede where students from a range of ethnic backgrounds are encouraged to use their life stories and retranslate them into art and design works that surprise, as this seat with storage has the feel of Australia but it could never be as unique without the Zimbabwean influence.

Tino’s product along with a range of other art and design works by talented students in VCE Art, Media, Visual Communication and Design and Textiles will be exhibited at Marymede Catholic College in the recently established Calthorpe Gallery from November 7 – 11. 

Opening Night: Tuesday November 8: 3.45pm – 5.30pm
