Marian Connections

At Marian, we have a strong connection with our community and focus on positive relationships with our students, staff and families.


'Marian Connections' is about maintaining contact with our community through our website. Here you'll find the fortnightly message from our Principal, journals from our Student Leaders, and a wealth of Pastoral Care information to support our community.


 
 

From the Principal - 7 May 2021

As we move through Term 2, more regular events have come back into our lives at school. Last week we held the first whole College Assembly since February 2020 and actually were able to experience live music from the Intensify ensemble, conducted as always by Linda Austin.

How wonderful to have this sharing of gifts and talents once again – as our student leaders said at the start of the assembly, we feel like we have been in a state of waiting for a long time, and now the wait is almost over. Read More...

It’s difficult to believe that this is the last website communication for Term 1, even though so much has happened already this year. We are fortunate that we have been able to resume most aspects of College life in their pre-COVID format. Indeed, we are very excited to be able to revert to our House and vertical homeroom structures from the start of next term. While our students in Years 8 to 12 will be able to renew acquaintances with their homeroom peers and teachers, this will be a novel experience for our Year 7 students who have only known the Year group homerooms.

This week, we are well into the season of Lent and our 2021 Project Compassion focus is on buying water tanks for schools in the Solomon Islands to guarantee access for the children to clean drinking water. This is an ambitious project as each tank will cost $1300. Given the tenacity and passion of Meg Thomas, our social justice leader, I am confident, however, that we will exceed our target as we do each year. Read More...
