A MESSAGE TO PARENTS AND GUARDIANS FROM THE PRINCIPAL OF

MARCELLIN COLLEGE

Marcellin College is a Year 7 to Year 13 Catholic, co-educational college in the Marist

tradition, for boys and girls.

With the teachings of Christ to guide us, we strive to nurture the talents of every student

in our care, to impart Christian values that help them find personal fulfillment in the

school years and beyond, and to give an experience of education that will allow them to

look back with pride and pleasure.

Part of being educated at Marcellin College is that you receive a well rounded education,

that we have nurtured you spiritually, culturally, sporting wise, that you have grown your

socialization skills and that you have received an outstanding academic education.

A student population that is both male and female, of wide age range and multi cultural,

gives an ideal opportunity for furthering the natural and balanced human relationships that

are encouraged in the primary schools. Marcellin College is able to provide young people

with lessons in tolerance and mutual respect that will equip them well for adult life.

In order for them to be positive, well adjusted and motivated, our students are encouraged

to use the talents God has given each individual. With our motto of Optima Quaere, Seek

the best, students are challenged to be the best that they can be, in all they do, from their

faith to relationships, to inside and out of the classroom. The staff of the College are

committed to helping each student to strive for and achieve to the best of their ability.

A successful education needs a relationship between the home, school and the student so

that we all share the same hopes and expectations.

The saying that “it takes a whole village to educate a child” indicates the degrees of

shared understanding and co-operation that are necessary if we are to realise our goals

fully. At Marcellin College, students, parents and teachers are expected to be a close-knit

community working together.

I welcome your interest in Marcellin College. If you would like to know more please feel

free to telephone for an appointment.

We look forward to your becoming part of the Marcellin College community.

MARCELLIN COLLEGE

A BRIEF BACKGROUNDMARCELLIN CHAMPAGNAT

The Proprietors of Marcellin College are the Marist

Brothers. They named this school after their founder,

Saint Marcellin Champagnat.

Joseph Benedict Marcellin Champagnat was born on 20

May, 1789, the year that the French Revolution began,

in a farming hamlet in the south-west of France. He

experienced little success in formal education until he

was a more mature student at the seminary in Lyons.

And it was here that the idea of establishing an order of

teaching brothers to be responsible for the schooling of

young people originated.

The brothers’ community at La Valla outgrew its small house near Marcellin’s presbytery

and the men were directed by their founder in the building of the famous Hermitage,

designed to accommodate 150 brothers. Champagnat was released from parish work

to focus on his burgeoning order of teachers. When the Marist Fathers were entrusted

with the new missions in Oceania in 1836, Marcellin selected some of his brothers to go

as well.

Marcellin was not deterred by hard labour nor by the criticism of certain Church officials

nor by the rebuffs of the French Government, from which he twice unsuccessfully

sought official recognition for his order. However, in the late 1830s his health began to

deteriorate. He died on 6 June 1840, convinced that his Little Brothers of Mary would

flourish after his death.

His legacy today is over 3,500 brothers in 79 countries and a countless number of lay

people who uphold his ideals of selfless service in humility and simplicity inspired by the

Mother of God, of commitment to spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ, of active

involvement in the lives of young people, of open-hearted family spirit and of love of

one’s work.

Marcellin Champagnat was canonised on 18 April 1999.

Ordained at the age of 27, Father Champagnat was assigned to the parish of La Valla,

where the first volunteers to be teaching brothers joined him. A school master trained

them in teaching methods and they then began giving instruction in the villages around

their parish.

•Information and news from government sources, research institutions and other sources.

•Public domain software and shareware of all types.

network far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the learning

outcomes of the curriculum.

Acceptable Use of School Computers

and among academic institutions all over the world by providing access to unique resources and the

copyrighted).

Student subscriptions to electronic mailing lists are not allowed.

From time to time, Marcellin College system administrators will make determinations on whether specific

uses of the network are consistent with the acceptance use practice.

Security

Security on any computer system is a high priority, especially when the system involves many users. If you

feel you can identify a security problem on the Internet or network, you must notify a teacher or the Principal

immediately. Do not demonstrate the problem to other users. Users should not intentionally seek

information on, obtain copies of, or modify files, other data or passwords belonging to other users on the

network. Attempts to gain unauthorised access to system programmes or computer equipment will result in

cancellation of user access. Any user identified as a security risk or having a history of problems with other

computer systems may be denied access to school computers and/or the school network.

Vandalism

Inappropriate Use

The Principal determines inappropriate use. Some examples of inappropriate use are described in

conditions above. The Principal may, as well as other disciplinary action, request the suspension or

termination of computer use of any user who violates these acceptable practices. Such loss of an Internet

license will be for a period commensurate with the seriousness of the offence. The illegal use of the

computer network through the downloading of, transmission of or possession of objectionable (illegal)

material, will result in disciplinary action. The school is also required to notify the Police and the Department

of Internal Affairs in such cases.

Accuracy & Quality of Information

Marcellin College specifically denies any responsibility for the accuracy or quality of information obtained

through the Internet. Information (including text, graphics, video, etc.) from Internet sources used in student

assignments and reports should be cited in the same way as references to printed materials.
