This coming Friday, six of our Year 11’s, along with Mr McCormack and Ms Malusu will embark on a life changing experience as they depart for Alice Springs on their REMAR Blue Solidarity Camp.

This camp will see these young people immersed into life within a remote indigenous community and they will work alongside young children and assist with various ongoing projects within the community of Amoonguna which is located just outside the Alice Springs municipality. 

Marymede Catholic College wishes Emily Dove, Kyrellos Rizkalla, Elizabeth Naguib, Tatenda Muranda, Gabriella Agosta and Mary Nehma a safe and spirit-filled journey.

We are very much looking forward to hearing about your amazing experience on your return.



'Where Are They Now?' gives the Marymede Community an opportunity to catch up with and meet members of the Marymede Alumni - past graduates who have since commenced new journeys and adventures outside of Marymede Catholic College.

Name: Drew Roberts – Class of 2015

What year did you graduate from Marymede Catholic College and tell us a little bit about your journey after Secondary School?

I graduated from Marymede in 2015. Afterwards, I went straight into La Trobe University and began my first year there studying Health Science, which I am still doing now. I was lucky enough to be offered a coaching role at Marymede however my main bulk of work is based around my local area of Kinglake West, where I maintain properties and provide necessities such as firewood for people who can’t do it for themselves.

Provide us with a ‘snapshot’ into your daily routine:

My daily routine is quite the bore! Generally speaking, I will wake up well before my first class starts at Uni to allow myself some time to work on a job near home. Once finished, I will head into La Trobe, where I stay and study until late afternoon/early evening. Depending on the day, I will either go for a run or go to the gym before it turns dark, then head home to do it all over again. Nothing special!

What will you remember most about your time at Marymede Catholic College?

My most memorable moments were times spent with my mates. I cannot pinpoint any particular moment, however Year 12 Retreat, winning the 2015 SACCSS AFL Premiership and Graduation/Valedictory Dinner all come to mind. I will never forget the great times spent at Marymede with my friends.

What advice would you give to current students at the College?

My main advice would be to not turn down many opportunities throughout school. Whether it be to speak at an assembly or to play a sport which you don’t think you will be good at, just go ahead and give it a crack; that way you will not be left thinking “What if....?”.

Fast Five:

Favourite Food: Anything Thai

Favourite Movie/TV Show: The Walking Dead

Hobbies or Something We May Not Know About You: I love cooking! Nothing too fancy, however I thoroughly enjoy whipping the apron on every-so-often. 

Favourite Sporting Team: Carlton Football Club

If You Could Pick Any 3 People as Dinner Guests, Who Would They Be and Why?:

Kevin Hart: Because he would make dinner an absolute laugh;

Winston Churchill: Because I am a History fanatic;

Chris Judd: Because it's Juddy!



Congratulations to Daniel Sabatino (Year 9) who recently received a commendation from the Music Theatre Guild of Victoria for “Junior Male in a Leading Role” in recognition of his performance as Horton the Elephant in Marymede Catholic College’s production of Seussical Jr.

It's an outstandning achievement for Daniel - considering that Seussical Jr. was his first ever performance on stage! Deciding in 2017 to audition for a role in Marymede Catholic College's inaugural junior production, Daniel thought it was time he give himself a chance and had "nothing to lose".

When looking back on his time as Horton the Elephant, the best part of the experience is an easy answer for Daniel. "All the new friendships made with my fellow cast and crew" he reclaims. Although there is one part of performing that's not so easy "The hardest part about being in the show was probably the amount of lines you have to learn, remember and rehearse".

Daniel is now very much looking forward to getting involved in our 2018 production 'Xanadu' but for now offers the following advice for his fellow performers or those looking to get involved in the Performing Arts: "Just have fun. Do your best and anything could come out of it. Who knows, it could be the start of a brand new career."

Marymede Catholic College congratulates Daniel Sabatino on this outstandning achievement.

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!


The Marymede Catholic College Top Acts Performing Arts Concert will take place on Thursday November 9 at the Plenty Ranges Arts and Convention Centre.

Celebrating the top performances developed by Marymede Catholic College Drama, Dance and Music students.




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.
