Marcellin College Randwick

Aeterna Non Caduca | The Eternal Not The Transitory

Duke of Edinburgh

The Duke of Edinburgh Award is a non-competitive, flexible program that involves students designing unique, individualised programs to explore their potential socially, physically and emotionally. Students aged 14 years and older complete a set number of hours in the areas of skill development, physical recreation, community service and adventurous journey.  The boys are able to achieve either a Bronze, Silver or Gold award.

Students are assessed on effort, progress, perseverance and commitment with an emphasis on personal growth and independence.

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.
