Mens Health Awareness Round
by Benjamin Reynolds - Wednesday, 12 June 2019, 2:01 PM

The Sport program at Marcellin prides itself on creating an environment that focuses on sportsmanship whilst developing physically, mentally and social skills of all our boys. This weekend all 1st teams will look to take the next step and make an impact on all males within our community. Sport can be a fantastic vehicle to educate the broader community and this weekend we aim to highlight the importance on Men's Health, an issue that the Health and Physical Education department have promoted for many years via the Men's Health Night and year ten curriculum. 

All boys representing Marcellin in Cross Country, 1st Rugby, 1st XVIII Football, 1st XI Soccer and 1st Hockey will all wear light blue socks to create a talking point for all players, officials and spectators.  

The aim is for males to take more care in their everyday health by making simple changes with their behaviour. We want boys to educate males in their life to:

  • overcome the fear of visiting their GP regularly
  • make physical activity a priority in their life
  • eat healthy and reduce portion sizes.
  • stop smoking
  • reduce alcohol intake
  • pick up the phone and talk to their mates. 

Change is always hard but is easier with the help of others. We encourage sons, fathers, uncles, grandfathers, wives, sisters, grandmothers and daughters to all support the males in their life to make their health a priority. 

Old boy Dr Bernie Crimmins is a fantastic support to our community regarding the issue of Mens Health. It is a passion of his and he is very well known for his drive to help all males make a change. Please take three minutes to listen to his advice.

June 1st Fixtures

Cross Country – Kieran Hesse

Round 4 of the AGSV cross country season saw the Marcellin Cross Country team take the long bus ride down to Frankston to compete on the Ballam Park course for one final year. This race officially marked the halfway point of the AGSV season with three races completed and three to follow, the boys all knew another winning team performance would place us in an enviable position and sit us four points up on the premiership ladder.

First up once again it was our seniors who began the day with a 9 o'clock start, completing a slightly shorter and muddier 5.5 Km then we have been used to. A late withdrawal from our usual top 5 scorer Jack Mirrielees due to injury ...

AGSV Swim Championships
by Benjamin Reynolds - Tuesday, 26 March 2019, 12:29 PM

2019 AGSV Championships

Report by Teacher in Charge of Swimming, Mr David Bellis

The Marcellin AGSV Swim team came together for the final time in 2019 last Friday night, March 22nd. This is the night our swimmers have been preparing for every Tuesday and Thursday morning since the start of the term. Whilst a focus on team culture has been evident throughout the program, there was one true goal that every swimmer had for AGSV competition, which was to give Marcellin College a top 3 placing. Having come 4th for the previous three years  and the gap between us and Camberwell (3rd) decreasing each year, it was decided that 2019 was the year to finally achieve that goal.

We got off to the best start possible with Milton Simopoulos winning the very first event for the night (16/U 100m Freestyle). it was great to have Marcellin  on top of the points tally and set the tone for the ...

"Ted Meehan, on your far right when looking at the picture. As well as having one of the best score lines of the day in his singles, Ted fought hard in his doubles and always encouraged and affirmed his playing partner. Ted has been a consistent player at training's too across the season, always attending to the drills and looking to improve." - words from Carolyn Young.




Jake Donovan made 60 runs off just 59 balls to get the Marcellin Intermediate B team over the line against Ivanhoe.
