Marcellin College Randwick

Aeterna Non Caduca | The Eternal Not The Transitory

 

This document was developed in 2013 through consultations with Old Boys, former and current staff, current students, parents, former parents and Brothers. Each group were asked to consider the following three questions:

 

What characteristics of a Marcellin boy do we want to retain?

 

What needs further developing? 

 

What’s new?

 

After a synthesis of these responses The Marcellin Graduate was created. It comprises seven dimensions: His Calling, A Respectful Man, A Sense of Community, An Achiever, A Loyal Friend, Spirited, and A Man of Faith.

The Marcellin Graduate is the preeminent document at the College that outlines the core of our mission.

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.
