Principal's welcome

Welcome to Marymede Catholic College!

I am most grateful for the trust placed in me to be the Principal of the College.

It is with much excitement and enthusiasm that I have joined the Marymede community in 2022.

It is extremely important to me that I am leading a Catholic school.

I strongly believe in helping young people to be their best and to do this with the invitation for them to understand our Catholic tradition; one of hope and love.

At Marymede Catholic College where our moto is In the way of Mary, we are inspired by how Mary helped others to understand Jesus’s teaching.

I hope that our students come to understand Jesus’ message and are inspired to use their gifts and talents in the service of creating a loving world.

Marymede Catholic College serves the parishes of St Francis of Assisi (Mill Park and South Morang) and Christ the Light (Doreen, Kinglake, Mernda and Whittlesea) and is governed by Melbourne Achdiocese Catholic Schools Ltd (MACS).

Marymede Catholic College opened in 2006 and is a coeducational Prep to Year 12 school with approximately 2070 students on its South Morang Campus alongside the Marymede Early Learning Centre which offers 3 year old and 4 year old kindergarten.

Excitingly, the College is expanding the facilitation of its learning program through the introduction of an additional Campus in Doreen.  The Doreen Campus will be next door to St Paul the Apostle Catholic Primary School.  Marymede Catholic College will be opening an Early Learning Centre on its Doreen Campus in 2023 and a secondary school beginning with Year 7 in 2024.

The College is located on a beautiful site with excellent facilities. 

Working in partnership with parents we are committed to inspiring student learning and growth in all areas; spiritual, academic, wellbeing and physical.

Students are supported by fantastically committed teachers who create a safe, inclusive and happy learning environment.

High standards are fostered at the College where all students are suitably challenged and supported to achieve their very best.  We stretch students’ talents.  We help those who are vulnerable.

An engaging and contemporary learning program, including a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities is on offer to students.

The students of the College are very proud of their school, value the relationships they form with their friends and are blessed to have many great opportunities to come to know our loving God and to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding in all areas. 

Graduates of the College leave confident to lead and serve the world of today and tomorrow.

Parents considering enrolling their child at Marymede Catholic College are encouraged to explore our website and contact Carolyn Key, College Registrar, with any further questions or requests to visit the College.
