The Parents & Friends Committee at Marymede Catholic College have recently been advised of a safety recall put in place for one of the products sold at the recent Mother’s Day Stall Fundraiser.
The product that is being recalled is the ‘Scented Melts and Burner’ (please see image below). The reason for the recall is due to the unpredictability of the burner itself, and the potential for it to overheat or burn the surface where it has been placed.

Any student/family who purchased this gift is asked to please return it to the Primary School Office on Monday May 18 from 8.30am onwards. Upon returning of the item students will be able to select a new gift to take with them (either a Photo Frame or Bracelet).

Should you require further information regarding this safety recall please do not hesitate to contact The Parents & Friends Committee at paf@marymede.vic.edu.au


A reminder to parents of students performing at next Monday’s ‘An Evening of Music’ to reserve your tickets asap.

There is no charge for the event, however due to limited seating, audience members will be required to obtain tickets via Trybooking.com.

Tickets are now available from: http://www.trybooking.com/HNKC



Recently, members of the Year 12 Media Class of 2014 were invited to return to our College as guest speakers and run a SAT Masterclass/Q&A Session with the current Year 12 students.

The panel, which featured Madeline Lancaster, Nicholas Musto, Rebecca Pannell, Teagan Carlton, Genna Sbaglia and Amy Williams, discussed their triumphs, tribulations, and pioneering achievements of completing VCE Media last year. The panel reflected on what they learnt and gave the current students some invaluable advice on preparing for exams and assessment tasks, and how to succeed in their studies. Our students found the masterclass to be very insightful and motivating and they enjoyed hearing about their former peers’ experiences and successes.

Rebecca Pannell and Amy Williams have both gone on to study Media at Swinburne University of Technology.
