Marymede College Captain Michael Manoussakis (Year 12), is currently preparing for the trip of a lifetime after successfully winning a coveted place in the National Youth Science Forum’s International Programme.

Michael, who is 1 of only 44 successful students across the country, will now travel to New Brunswick, Canada on May 8 and will represent Australia at the Canada-wide Science Fair, talking to local Primary and Secondary school students about advancements in Australian science and Australia in general.

Michael’s journey to Canada began some 12 months ago, where he was selected after an initial application and interview to represent the Diamond Creek Rotary Club in the State selections for the National Youth Science Forum in Canberra. This annual Forum gathers the best and the brightest senior Secondary students from around Australia who are seeking to pursue a career in science. During his time in our nation’s capital, Michael visited a variety of science facilities, listened to eminent scientists, and participated in regular debates.

Michael would then go on to write a detailed formal application for the National Youth Science Forum International Programme outlining his passion for Chemistry and ambition to study Materials Science.

Michael’s application was successful and he was subsequently awarded a place in this prestigious programme.

We congratulate Michael on his outstanding achievement and wish him all the very best in Canada.

The filmmakers will walk the red carpet for the premiere of their short films at our annual 'Iris Media Showcase'


Primary School Mother’s Day Celebrations - Friday May 8 - Period 1 (8.55am - 9.45am)

Marymede Catholic College would like to invite all Primary mothers to join us on the morning of Friday May 8 and celebrate Mother's Day with your child.

Prep: Mother's Day Assembly
Years 1 - 5: Classroom Visits
Year 6: Guild Sports

This event will provide an opportunity for our Primary School mothers to see their child/children in their classroom or on the sporting field and share their Primary School experience.

Parents with multiple children in the Primary School will be able to visit all of their classrooms during this time.
We ask that mothers remain in the outdoor areas e.g. Primary School Courtyard, whilst our students organise themselves for the day and settle into their classroom. Mothers in attendance will also need to allow safe passage for students to enter the Primary School houses. We anticipate this period of the morning to take no longer than 5 minutes. Co-operation during the first 5 minutes of the morning will avoid overcrowding in the open areas of each house/locker bays which can be very overwhelming for students.

We look forward to welcoming our Mother's to the College on this day and take the opportunity to wish all Mums in the Marymede Community a very happy Mother’s Day.

Exciting times lie in wait for Maya Dove (Year 10) who will soon get the chance for represent her state after recently being selected in the Victorian Squad to compete in the Kevin Coombs Cup, an annual tournament for Junior Wheelchair Basketball.

It’s an outstanding achievement for Maya, considering she has only been playing the sport for 2 years. “I started playing Basketball in 2013 so that I could join a team environment” says Maya, who now plays every Thursday night for The Saints in the Kilsyth & Mountain District Basketball Association.

Maya’s potential in the sport was identified in 2014 and she was soon selected into the Australian Women’s Team Development Squad. “Playing with the Australian development squad was a daunting experience. All my teammates were older than me and had been playing for a lot longer than I had. However it allowed me to gain more confidence in myself and I learnt a lot from the opportunity.”

Maya hopes that her Basketball endeavours will allow her to travel the world and compete for Australia, but for now her sights are solely focused on the upcoming Kevin Coombs Cup which will take place in Ballarat from Tuesday April 14 to Saturday April 18. Her preparation for the State team consists of weekly Sunday training, in addition to her regular weekly training with her local team.

Marymede Catholic College congratulates Maya on this outstanding achievement and wish her all the very best at her upcoming tournament and throughout her future sporting endeavours.
