Marian Catholic College prides itself on being a ‘community school’ where each individual is valued and their contribution is recognised and appreciated.
The College’s student support and welfare programs are designed to ensure a safe, caring and supportive environment in which all students have the opportunity to achieve their best. We are proud of our College and of its students. The students work very hard and they achieve very good results both in the classroom and in extra-curricular activities. Some of these include Tournament of Minds, Music, Drama, Public Speaking, Art Club, Duke of Edinburgh Award, MUNA and representative sport.
The main thing that teachers at Marian want to do is to support students’ learning. We will help students to build upon their strengths as well as to try to overcome their weaknesses. If students work hard in their lessons and with their homework, if they take up the wide variety of opportunities in front of them, they have every chance to find great success at Marian.
On November 30, Year 7/8 Boys and Girls teams took on Wade and Griffith High in twenty20 cricket games as part of the Cudmore Shield competition. The girls fought hard but were defeated by a strong Wade High team by 14 runs despite the efforts of Isabella Salmon 15 not out and Tegan Aloisi 1/4. In their first game the boys bowled well to restrict to Wade High to 101 thanks to some tight bowling from Connor Sully 2/14. In reply many of the boys failed to fire however as we were bowled out for 68 despite the efforts of Jacob Testoni 16 and Taine Moraschi 15. In the final game of the day the Marian boys posted a more than competitive total of 5/137 with knocks from Ryan Bock of 52 not out and Sam Irvin 28. The Griffith High team proved up to the task chasing down the total with overs to spare even with Sam Irvin claiming 2/18.
YEAR 8 SENDS SUPPORT TO SOUTH AFRICA
Year 8 Geography includes a topic called Global Issues. This topic focuses on common needs throughout the world, including health and education. AIDS-afflicted villages are prime examples of the deep challenges when faced with a lack of health and educational support. Sr Theresa Foley has spent over a decade in South Africa providing such support and Year 8-1 and 8-4 were privileged to hear a presentation from Sr Theresa on her time spent there. Following her presentation, both classes expressed a desire to support some of the orphans that Sr Theresa helped raise and who subsequently completed their schooling and are now at University. Both classes have raised $100 for these students (see photos below) and some have also established email contact. Thank you Year 8 for your material support, thank you Sr Theresa for so clearly living your life for others and a big welcome to Phillipine, Mmatlou and Mosibudi to the Marian family.
