    VET In Schools (VETis) – Classes Wednesday 27 June / Mid-year Reports
    by Andrew Bryson - Tuesday, 19 June 2018, 1:53 PM
     

    Students who are studying a VETis program at an external TAFE or school are reminded that classes will continue during the first week of the Marcellin school holidays. All students are expected to attend their respective programs on Wednesday 27 June. Should a student not be able to attend, parents will need to contact the College informing them of this absence.

    All families will receive a mid-year report for their VETis program. Please note, these are collated from TAFE’s and host schools of programs early in Term Three, prior to being sent to families.

    If you have any questions about the above information or any queries regarding your son’s involvement in the VETis program over the coming weeks, please contact Ms. Fran Davey (VET Coordinator) via email or at the College on 9851 1589.

    With the end of term upon us, I’d like to take this opportunity to congratulate your son on his achievements this semester. I’d also like to thank you for your support as we continue to work in partnership in supporting your son to fulfil his potential as he strives for the highest with virtue and courage.

    by Andrew Bryson - Tuesday, 19 June 2018, 1:51 PM
     

    In Term Three Year 9 and 10 students will begin working through the subject selection process in preparation for 2019.  Year 7 and 8 students will also begin considering their subject choices for next year.

    Faith Matters
    by Carolyn Young - Tuesday, 19 June 2018, 12:54 PM
     

    Held annually, Refugee Week doesn’t receive the national attention of events supporting the resolution of some social justice issues in our country. Yet to honour our call to live as Marists it is imperative that we do not ignore the marginalised people seeking the safety of our shores. The theme of this year’s National Refugee Week reflects our Marist commitment to solidarity – it’s #WithRefugees Today, arguably as much as ever, we need a global movement to demand the safety and rights of refugees are protected. In Australia it is the responsibility of our Government and each one of us to ensure people forced to flee from their homes can live with dignity and with hope. As we look forward to our term break, let us offer prayers of gratitude for our opportunities and safety, and also a prayer that we, and our leaders, remember to treat all people as God’s children – human beings who are individuals, not statistics, flesh and blood, not problems to ignore: "Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me" (Matthew 25:40, 45, NIV).
