On the 22nd and 23rd of August 2015, Marymede Catholic College participated in the Tournament of Minds 2016 – Metro Northern Regional Finals held at La Trobe University, Bundoora.

The College had a total of two Primary teams participate in the Language Literature challenge facilitated by Ms. Beth Cilia, in addition to three Secondary teams participating in the Maths & Engineering, Social Sciences and Applied Technology challenges facilitated by Mr.Vinodh Narasimhan, Ms. Angie Bedford & Ms.Emma Kiely and Mr. Jeremy Guzman respectively.

The Tournament of Minds competition involves a six week long-term challenge and a spontaneous challenge provided to teams on the day. All challenges were released by the organisers on the 13th of July, 2015. Our students commenced their work on the challenge during this time. Teams had to find a solution for the long-term challenge and present it in a drama-style presentation. In addition, the students had to create props made of recycled materials as part of the challenge brief. The Maths and Engineering challenge this year required the students to make an invisible cargo vehicle, the Social Sciences challenge was about erasing important people from history, the Applied Technology challenge was to make a robot to clean the classroom out of mechano and the Language Literature challenge was about exploring the work of Australian author Aaron Blabey.

After countless lunch times and after-school sessions, all teams were ready to present their work at the Regional Finals. Our students presented their long-term challenge as a ten minute presentation. In addition, the students had to complete a secret spontaneous challenge which tested their creativity and team work. All teams did a fantastic job at the tournament and the feedback from the judges was very positive.

The Applied Technology team was declared winners of the Metro Northern Regional Finals and have been invited to participate at the State Finals to be held on the 13th of September, 2015 at LaTrobe University, Bundoora. This is a first in the history of Marymede Catholic College and we would like to wish the Applied Technology Team all the success at the State Finals.

Primary Progress Interview Letter

Years 7-10 Progress Interview Letter

 

In this edition of 'Meet the Teacher' we speak with Mr. Jeremy Guzman from the Secondary School.

Name: Jeremy Guzman - Secondary School Teacher - jeremy.guzman@marymede.vic.edu.au

What is your role at the College?

I currently teach Media from Years 9-12 and VET Media. I also coordinate the College Yearbook and run the Marymede Film School Co-Curricular Program with Ms Hopkins.

Tell us about an interesting project or topic that you are currently running with one of your classes?

The Year 11 Media students are creating a television news program called ‘Marymede Now’. As part of their assessment, each student is required to fulfil the responsibilities of a specialist role, such as a reporter or camera operator, and collaborate with their peers in small teams to produce a news story.

For this project, I also staged a breaking news event, which the class knew nothing about. When an anti-litter protest involving Ms Wake, Ms Bedford and the 7.1 Drama class broke out in Wurrun Common, ‘Marymede Now’ were first to arrive at the scene with exclusive coverage as the news unfolded!

What is the most rewarding aspect of being a Teacher?

The most rewarding aspect of being a Teacher is seeing students overcome a challenge and achieve their goals, be it academic or personal. Even the smallest achievement, like putting your hand up and having a go at answering a question, can take a lot of courage for some people and can cultivate the biggest feeling of success.

Fast Five:

Favourite Food: I have recently enjoyed trying Spanish and Mexican cuisine.

Favourite Movie/TV Show: This is very difficult for a Media teacher to answer! At the moment, my favourite film is Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance), which won Best Picture at this year’s Oscars, and my favourite TV show is Glitch – a gripping new Australian drama on the ABC.

Hidden Talent or Something We May Not Know About You: I play the drums, piano and know a few chords on the guitar.

Favourite Sporting Team/Athlete: The Australian Cricket Team.

If You Could Pick Any 3 People as Dinner Guests, Who Would They Be and Why?:
Tina Fey - To make me laugh;

Dave Grohl - To provide me with creative inspiration;

Quentin Tarantino - To teach me how to be a better filmmaker.
