Parents in Touch

In 2004, the model of P&F meetings to engage parents in the life of the school was changed and 'Parents in Touch' was born. The aim of Parents in Touch is to build a stronger partnership between the school and home by having input from people outside of MCR who are renowned in their field.

These special parent evenings cover a range of issues that impact on boys' education. Special guest speakers are invited to present on the topic of their expertise. Typically, 70 - 90 parents and friends of the College are in attendance. The College Executive are present at every Parents in Touch evening, and on occasion are the guest speakers.

Parents in Touch topics among others have included:

  • Getting the best out boys
  • Growing boys into fine young men
  • Cyberbullying
  • Grief Loss and Change
  • Understanding the HSC
  • Alcohol, Drugs & other community forums

 

Parents in Touch evenings are held once per term at the College, in Greenstead Hall.

 

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.
