Active Teaching For Active Learners

At MCR we continue to strive towards an environment of ‘Active Learning #inCollaboration’. Our new strategic plan acknowledges this journey, and in doing so issues a challenge to the Marcellin community. We will continue to shift our ‘active learning’ emphasis, and for the life of the current strategic plan ‘Good Christians and Good Citizens 2017-2018’ we will focus on ‘Active Teaching forActive Learners’.

What is clear to many involved in education today, is that the era of the ‘lone wolf’ model of teaching and learning is now defunct. It is now accepted that students are much more social in the way they learn. They actively seek to collaborate with one another both within the school context and beyond. Active learning is now pursued in a collaborative setting. Our challenge is to cater for this learning style in an enthusiastic, dynamic and innovative fashion.

The Marcellin Graduate

They arrive as young boys dependent very much on their parents and their teachers; they depart as adults in the eyes of the law. Young men - citizens of the world. There is an impression that the Marcellin boy is cocooned on the eastern side of Anzac Parade. The challenge for him is that he sees beyond that into the broader world. He is a global citizen. He is called to reach out to others, to let go of any preoccupation with self. His destiny is, as
St Marcellin Champagnat foretold, to be a good Christian and good citizen.
