Lent prayer


God of all, inspired by the message of Blessed Oscar Romero, may we work to bring about your kingdom of justice and peace, on earth as it is in heaven. Amen.

I tell you, most solemnly, unless a grain of wheat falls on the ground and dies, it remains only a single grain; but if it dies, it yields a rich harvest.

John 12:20-30

Blessed Oscar Romero preached on this gospel on 24 March 1980 in El Salvador. He shared this powerful message:

“My dear sisters and brothers... You have just heard in Christ’s gospel that one must not love oneself so much as to avoid getting involved in the risks of life that history demands of us. Those who try to fend off the danger will lose their lives, while those who, out of love for Christ, give themselves to the service of others, will live, live like the grain of wheat that dies, but only apparently. If it did not die, it would remain alone.

“The harvest comes about only because it dies, allowing itself to be sacrificed in the earth and destroyed. Only by undoing itself does it produce the harvest.”

Romero, who spoke out in solidarity with the poorest people, went on to reflect on the Eucharist:

“May this body immolated and this blood sacrificed for humans nourish us also, so that we may give our body and our blood to suffering and to pain – like Christ, not for self, but to bring about justice and peace for our people.”

Moments after saying these words, a gunshot rang out of the chapel. Romero fell to the ground. He died within minutes. 

Romero was martyred for the faith. He refused to be silent in the face of injustice. May we also be moved to speak out.

a bishop for the Diocese of Wagga Wagga

and to us show watchful care.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son,

Catholic Schools Week 2018

Sunday March 4 to Saturday March 10, was dedicated as “Catholic Schools Week.” Typically, Catholic schools across our region, state and nation, open their doors to families, friends and community members to celebrate Catholic Schools Week 2018. This year’s theme, ‘Catholic schools: Faith in our Future’ focuses on strengthening relationships between students and their Catholic faith by ensuring that all students, with support from their parents, staff and members of the wider diocesan community, will have every opportunity of realising their full potential.

The College held the Annual Information Evening on Tuesday 6th March which was well attended. We are also continuing to conduct tours of the College on Thursday and Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings by appointment. In Term Two there will be a number of Open Days to showcase quality teaching and learning in action and what a typical day looks and feels like with the Marian family.

Catholic Schools Week also marks the start of the 2019 enrolment period. We see this as an opportune time for all of us to reflect on the place of Catholic Education in 2018. We are proud at Marian Catholic College to honour the past and celebrate our traditions. However, we must not simply “do things the way they’ve always been done, just because that’s the way we do things.” It is our collective responsibility to ensure that Marian Catholic College is meeting the needs of the “modern” learner. I trust that our school community provides:

· A faith and values based learning environment

· A holistic education, providing academic, spiritual, social, emotional and physical development

· Welcoming, inclusive and family-oriented environment

· High standards of behaviour and respect for self and others

· Safe and caring environment

· Sense of belonging and community

· Nurturing and development of individuals and their abilities

· Quality learning and teaching

· Strong academic reputation

· Broad curriculum and co-curricular options

· Academic, vocational and employment pathways

· Well-resourced and equipped classrooms with full ICT integration

· Development of life-long skills and a love of learning

· Strong links with parents and community

· Commitment to social justice

· Preparation for a life of worth, not simply a life of work

· An environment which aspires future leaders and active citizens

March 16 has been designated as a National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence.


On Friday 16 March 2018, Australian schools will stand united in their communities to celebrate the eighth National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence (NDA). The National Day of Action is Australia’s key anti-bullying event for schools and in 2018, schools are called to imagine a world free of bullying.

See link below for more information:


We at Marian Catholic College, like all schools, take the issue of bullying very seriously. All staff continually remind and educate our students that there is no scope for any individual or group, to take away learning opportunities from others or to make any individual or group feel unsafe or unhappy. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has written to every school principal across Australia urging them to help stamp out bullying and violence, both online and inside the school gates. The letter comes in wake of a report that detailed violent behaviour and hazing in university colleges around Australia. Mr Turnbull and Education Minister Simon Birmingham said schools, parents and families all had a role in ending bullying. "We believe all students have the right to be safe at school," the letter said. "Bullying and violence has no place in Australia.”


For parent and carer information, I have included below the National Definition of Bullying in Australian Schools, as well as a list of the follow up procedures that occur at the College, once a report has been made. There is also a link to the National Website. This link provides further information for parents and carers.

Bullying is an ongoing misuse of power in relationships through repeated verbal, physical and/or social behaviour that causes physical and/or psychological harm. It can involve an individual or a group misusing their power over one or more persons. Bullying can happen in person or online, and it can be obvious (overt) or hidden (covert). Bullying of any form or for any reason can have long-term effects on those involved, including bystanders. Single incidents and conflict or fights between equals, whether in person or online, are not defined as bullying.


Consequences of Bullying Behaviours:

Consequences of Bullying Behaviour will depend largely on the severity and/or nature of the incident. Follow up may include:

1. Support and interviews with staff members to change behaviours by working through strategies

2. Interviews with Year Leader and/or Director of Pastoral Care, and/or Assistant Principal or Principal.

3. Counselling

4. Informing Parents and/or parent interviews and conferences

5. Behaviour Management Contracts

6. Monitoring future behaviours

7. Co-ordinator Detention and/or Executive After School Detention

8. Suspension

9. Involvement of and/or consultation with our Police Liaison Officer

10. Exclusion from College

As a school, we have the obligation both to follow up on bullying as well as the mandate to educate and inform our students, staff and school community about bullying. We also have the obligation to, where possible and within reason, to take an educational and restorative approach with all students regarding bullying and bullying behaviour.


Wishing you all the best for a safe and happy weekend.

Mrs Tonetta Iannelli

Assistant Principal – Learning and Teaching

Preliminary and HSC Support Evening

Preliminary and HSC Support Evening - Thursday 22 March
Both sessions commencing at 6pm
Preliminary Session - College Hall 
HSC Support Evening - Drama Room

Brekkie Club

The Brekkie Club is a new ‘Initiative’ at Marian Catholic College. The Cultural Liaison Officer is promoting punctuality in attendance, healthy heating, and supporting students with positive learning behaviours.


From an education perspective

  • Studies indicated that a healthy breakfast positively influences student health and academic achievement.

    From a health Perspective

  • Breakfast provides the ideal opportunity to begin the day of eating bread, fruits, other cereals, and vegetables. Providing fruits at a breakfast club is a good opportunity for children to eat more.

    To help our MCC Brekkie Club develop, we would like to gain support from our broader school community to ensure the  sustainability of this important programme.  If you are interested in being a sponsor of this great program,  please contact me on the details noted below to discuss how you would like to sponsor our Brekkie Club.  In return for your sponsorship your business logo and details will be displayed in our Cultural Community page of our fortnightly newsletter. This week’s Brekkie Club has been sponsored by Vaccari’s East Griffith Bakery.

Project Compassion

Yesterday marked the end of our fourth week for Project Compassion. We have annihilated our goal of $1000 and currently sitting at $1900 and this is all due to the kindness of the MCC community!

I just wanted to thank you all for your generosity and encourage you to make the last two weeks of Lent/project compassion as big as you can. 

I have also started the "Homeroom hall of fame" outside the library for those homerooms that have reached over $100. There is still plenty of time for others to make it to the wall. 

Don't forget you can also track our progress and private donations on our website: 

Once again, thank you, thank you thank you. Please continue your generosity. 




As mentioned previously the Catholic Schools Office in Wagga announced that they would hold a Youth Festival to promote the Year of Youth, inspired by the reception of the Australian Catholic Youth Festival in 2017. Applications went out this week to our Yr 10 and Yr 11 students. We have had an enormous response with only 28 positions available. The festival will be held on the 21st – 23rd of May and is going to be a holistic festival of all things music, well-being, faith and justice therefore we are hoping to inspire various students. Such as musicians, public speakers, students who actively want to make change in the world or students who would like to experience joy and opening horizons of the Catholic church and their faith in a different light. 

The successful applicants will be notified late next week. Good luck to all of those who have applied.


Other News

The term is quickly passing and although the focus has been on Project Compassion we have some exciting developments in the pipeline. Hopefully next term will see the launch of some new initiatives focused around stewardship in our College. This is also a part of our Vision and Mission that our students are conscious of the world around them and their impact.

I would also like to congratulate Mr Moore and the Patrick House captains for organising a successful St Patrick’s Day this week. It was the first of our four patron saints that we have planned to celebrate this year with the purpose of bringing awareness to our faith history and pride. With the quality of the first day I am excited to see what the other houses come up with in order to celebrate their saints.

If you would like to suggest any ideas on how you feel our faith formation at the College can continue to strongly grow in mission and service please do not hesitate to contact me through the office or on [email protected].


Kind Regards and have a great weekend.

Heath Neville

Director of Mission

Pastoral Care

This week members of the C.A.T and the food tech staff selflessly gave up their lunch and recess break to cook for CAREVAN. Twice a term MCC provides a hot meal as part of a community roster for up to 120 people to enjoy. This activity provides opportunities for the students to learn more about their local community, socialise with other like-minded people who have a passion for social justice and perhaps learn some new culinary skills.

We could not be involved in such activities if not for the generosity and kindness of our volunteers; thankyou.


Currently we are finalising the logistics of the introduction of the water bottle recycling program here at MCC and are very excited about not only reducing the amount of waste we create but about the financial support we will be able to provide both CAREVAN and St Vincent De Paul. For the program to be sustainable the planning, promoting and implementation needs to be thorough and we hope to be actively involved at the start of term 2.

Just a reminder now that the cooler mornings have started, if you require assistance in sourcing warm uniform items for your child please do not hesitate to contact your child’s year coordinator or myself. I currently have a quantity of good quality clothing which has kindly been donated to pass on as per need.

Next week we celebrate Harmony Day and there is a significant build up of anticipation and excitement as the students practice the item they will be performing. It is a wonderful thing to see the pride and enthusiasm of both students and staff as we embrace all that is wonderful about living in a multicultural society. Together we will celebrate with music, dance and food. Don’t forget to keep up to date with what is happening at MCC with our social media pages; which will include photos and videos of the day as well as other significant moments and achievements.

Have a wonderful weekend

Regards Sue Hone (Pastoral Care Worker)



English News

Teachers are also readers and writers!

Currently the English Teachers Association (ETA) is encouraging English teachers to reconnect with their own passion and skills in reading and writing. The purpose behind this is to not only further ignite teacher passion for the subject, but also for teachers to place themselves in the shoes of their students to better understand the difficulties they may face and understand what makes a good piece of writing.

At our last English Faculty Meeting here at MCC the staff participated in targeted professional development aimed at fostering discussion about their own reading and writing patterns and habits.

Teachers then considered how we as writers can engage our audience through an opening sentence in an imaginative piece. They were given samples of good sentence starters as models such as:

Bradbury’s “It was a pleasure to burn” and

Orwell’s “It was a bright cold day in April and the clocks were striking thirteen”

They then used the following image to write their own sizzling start:


If you ask your English teacher politely they may even read their sizzling start out to you in class!

The challenge is out now to students and parents – can you write your own 1-2 sentence engaging opening to a piece of imaginative writing based off this image?

Send through the best piece of writing from your family and you may even be lucky enough to be published in the next edition [email protected]

Year 12 Standard English Excursion

On a sad change of note, I am disappointed with the lack of support from Year 12 Standard English students around the upcoming HSC Standard English Excursion.

Students made verbal commitments to this trip both at the end of last year and at the beginning of 2018. However, at this stage very few students have brought back permission notes and deposits.

The purpose of the excursion is for students to see one of their HSC set texts The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night time live on stage. This is the first time that this text has been performed on stage in Australia and is a once in a generation opportunity for students. It will be of high value to them in order to build empathy for the character of Christopher and to understand the key concerns of the composer. In addition, the excursion has been organised to Canberra on a Saturday so that students do not miss valuable class learning time.

I encourage parents to have a conversation with their child about their attendance on this excursion and bring their note and deposit back to the office by early next week.

If we do not have enough students attending the excursion, we will unfortunately have to cancel the trip and the College will have to pay the necessary cancellation fees.

Year 7 and their fantastical adventure

After finishing their poetry portfolio this week, Year 7 students begin their exciting adventure into the world of the Fantasy Genre! Students will begin by considering how and why we tell stories in our range of cultures, before moving on to read a series of Myths, Legends and Fairy Tales. In doing this, they will revise the narrative structure before their NAPLAN Exam and engage in an assortment of creative writing activities.

After the holiday break students will continue this unit, this time with a clear focus on Genre and how mythological stories have led to the Fantasy Genre. They will look at the key conventions of this Genre including characters, plot and setting through a range of short stories and a novel study.

I look forward to moving through the Year classes and witnessing some of their engagement in this unit.


Happy Reading,

English Leader of Learning


Science News

The Year 11 Biology class had an exciting and informative experience last week when they collected water samples and the organisms that lived in them. 

They visited the cod farm at Bilbul where they were treated to looking at the system and holding some very big slippery fish.  Paul, the production manager generously gave the students the benefits of his expertise when they looked at the microorganisms under the microscope.  Mr Chowdhury had packed the college microscopes as well, so it was a motivating environment in the lab and no one wanted to leave because there were so many interesting organisms to watch.

We continued to the lake to collect samples and Mr Chowdury set up the microscopes for students to have a look as they enjoyed a lunch break.  We then went out to the Murrumbidgee River to collect samples and found small shrimp with other microorganisms. 

Mr Chowdhury enjoyed being in the field as he reminisced on the days that he worked in the fisheries in Bangladesh.  The students were very excited to be in the field and were further inspired to become involved in the many careers that use the study of Biology as a focus for life-long learning.

The new senior science syllabuses for 2018 have a Depth Study which uses 15 hours of the Preliminary and 15 hours of the HSC course and the writing of a scientific report.  This excursion relates to the current area of study, Cells as the basis of Life, and prepares the student for the Depth Study next term.

I was very impressed with the enthusiasm of the biology students and felt sure that they would continue to enjoy the research related to the organisms that they could see.

Parish Chaplain - Fr Christian




Lord Jesus, Redeemer of all,
hear my prayer. 
For the love you bear
to those who ask forgiveness,
look mercifully on me,
as once you looked on Mary Magdalene
and on Peter who denied you.


Look on me, Lord Jesus Christ,
as you looked on the thief on his cross
and on every sinner
whom you have ever forgiven.


Look on me, merciful Lord,
as you looked on your mother, Mary,
standing in sorrow beneath your cross.
Let me feel in my heart her compassion for you,
and let my eyes weep for the sorrows
my sins have caused.


Call me from darkness
to my Father's house,
give me a new heart
and a place at your side
at the banquet of your kingdom. Amen.

Canon Workshop: Pioneer Park

Yr 10 Photography and Digital Media Students had the wonderful opportunity to engage in a Photography Workshop run by Canon. Students were given a Canon Camera each and set out on location to take some wonderful photos around Pioneer Park. Students were able to engage with their environment and take some high quality photos featuring the wild and "Ye Olde" landscape. Students took some interesting and artistic photos featuring buildings and streetscapes, old machinery and back alleyways of Pioneer Park. Thanks goes to CameraHouse and Canon for inviting the students to an opportunity to extend their photography skills. Well done students :)

Fifita Cup

On Monday 5th and 12th March, Marian competed in the Fifita Cup at E W Moore Oval in Open Girls League Tag, U16 Rugby League (Bonetti Cup) and Open Rugby League (Fifita Cup) competitions.

Marian showed a lot of determination in each of their games with some exceptional talent being displayed by some individuals during their respective games. The U16 boys’ rugby league side proved they were a real force against the very strong Wade High and Griffith High Teams. Narrowly losing against Wade and scoring a 16 – 16 draw against Griffith High.

All 6 games were played with good will and sportsmanship; the players were a credit to the Coaches Mr Morris, Mr Neville, Miss Foschi and Mrs John’s. I would to especially like to congratulate them on their efforts in organising and preparing their respective sides.

The following students stood out in their respective teams:

Open Girls League Tag: Elisa Rinaldo, Laura Royal and Samantha Pandolfo

U16 Boys Rugby League: Olivah Symth, Lotu Uoifalelahi and Elijah Lokeni

Open Boys Rugby League: Matthew Parisotto, Toutai Havea, Mitchell Hill and Thomas Royal

Sports Co-ordinator

A word from our Coaches.......

The Fifita and Bonetti Cup is completed for another year. It is always a shame that it comes and goes so quick.   For some of our players this is the first time they ever walk onto a rugby field and it is over in the blink of an eye. The results this year were mixed,  a highlight was the success of our under 16's had against Griffith High with a 16 all draw. Yet, that was not the main focus of our campaign. The real focus was on the effort and heart that each player showed in representing their College against two formidable sides that certainly have the odds in their favour with the depth of talent they have in the sport. The effort each player put in this year was sensational and we saw moments of brilliance from our players who couldn’t quite match up in defence at times. It is also important to note the spirit in which the game was played between all schools on and off the field. A highlight as you can see in the pictures is the traditional combining of teams for a game photo. This symbolises the manner in which the game is played. Congratulations to all that participated and built on the legacy of MCC Rugby.

Best and Fairest will be decided by the coaches and announced at the sports dinner later in the year:

Congratulations to the following captains who showed great leadership and Man of Matches:

Fifita Cup

Week 1.

Captain – CJ Cumpay

Man of Match –Matthew Parisotto

Week 2.
