    Faith Matters
    by Carolyn Young - Wednesday, 17 October 2018, 1:01 PM

    Last Thursday evening I had the privilege of attending the Remar Gold Graduation Evening. Having been able to attend the Bourke Solidarity Camp with this Caravel last year, it was a particularly special event for me to be involved with; I have great pride in each young man who graduated from Remar this year. I offer a special vote of thanks to Mr. Jamie McIlroy who, as well as being our Remar Coordinator, has faithfully served this Caravel over the last three years, supporting the young men on their important Remar journey. Please read on to learn more from Jamie about both the Remar...

    VCE Study Support – Exam Preparation
    by Andrew Bryson - Wednesday, 17 October 2018, 10:02 AM

    To support Year 12 students as they prepare for their final VCAA exams, we have reviewed all the results for the VCE Trial Exams completed during the recent school holidays. It was shared with students prior to the school holidays that any student who received 50% or less for their exam would be required to attend structured Study Support sessions including additional subject-specific study sessions with their subject teacher prior to their exam.

    These details have been collated and parents will receive an email over the coming days informing them that their son is required to ...

    The Courage To Lead With Hope
    by Andrew Bryson - Wednesday, 17 October 2018, 9:48 AM

    During the Arts and Leadership assembly held on Friday 12 October I had the pleasure of announcing the Ministry, Academic and Sport Captains for 2019. I applaud all students who had the courage to apply for student leadership positions and congratulate all our student leaders for being recognised as young leaders within our community.

    I continually share with others that in all forms of leadership whether in business, on the sporting field or in a school setting, it takes great courage to lead. It takes courage to step out of your comfort zone and lead others; to accept the responsibility associated with leading others and to be willing to serve others as a leader.

    In an Eagle article last term, I shared that our role as leaders calls us to to be hope filled in how we lead others, so they can see the possibilities of tomorrow. With reference to this, hope is a doing word. It makes things happen. Hope has the power to transform the world.

    I wish all our student leaders every success in 2019. I encourage them to lead with courage and as young leaders to be hope-filled in what tomorrow may bring.

    2019 College Captain Speech
    by Adriano Di Prato - Friday, 12 October 2018, 8:21 AM

    Good morning Mr. Murphy and wider Marcellin family,
    Today, I stand here before you with immense gratitude and a great sense of pride, being able to serve as the College Captain in our 69th year.

    I, like many boys started my Marcellin life here in Year 7, with no previous Marcellin family. However, with 25 other Saint Martins’ boys making the same journey I figured the start would be easy, and for the most part it was. Lunchtimes were always a blast and I formed the friendships which I value so much to this day and will forever.

    As an impressionable 13-year-old, keen to fit in I...
