First day of school - 2019
by Assistant Principals (Students) - Thursday, 7 February 2019, 9:19 AM

On Friday last week, we were delighted to welcome our new Year 7s and their families to the College and witness the wonderful support that they were given by their Year 12’s on the day. Many of our newest members wrote in their Exit Tickets how much they enjoyed meeting new people or their excitement at the classes that they were attending. They also noted how they would work through the challenges of finding where everything was and how the help of the Year 12’s in navigating the College was one such way they could work through these challenges.  We also warmly welcomed a number of new students to Marcellin ranging from Years 8 – 11. 

On Monday it was wonderful to reconnect with the returning students of Years 8 – 11 and the energy levels and aspirations for the year were clearly evident. We hope that all students have started the year with an outlook of hope, looking forward to the opportunities available to them this year. Thank you to the staff and parent volunteers who made everyone feel welcome, cooked BBQ’s and hosted events. If your son is experiencing any anxiety or struggling to transition into the next year level, please remember that we have a dedicated counselling team available. They may be easily contacted on
Photos from our first day are available on our College Gallery and we encourage all in our community to view these beautiful images capturing a key milestone for our newest students.
