Aeterna Non Caduca | The Eternal Not The Transitory

Chess

Chess is a game of strategy and prediction, requiring careful and critical thought as well as spatial awareness and a competitive spirit. At Marcellin College our Chess Team competes in the New South Wales Junior Chess League Secondary Schools Competition as well as various day tournaments throughout the year.

All boys are welcome to participate, regardless of previous experience or ability: all we ask is a basic knowledge of the rules and a genuine enjoyment of the game.

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.
