Marymede Catholic College would like to thank all those in attendance at our 2015 Primary School Family Maths Night on Tuesday July 21, 2015.
It was a great sight to see so many of our parents learning with and from their children!
Students from Prep to Year 5 have recently been involved with Mathematics Inquiry culminating in entries for the Maths Talent Quest hosted by the Mathematics Association of Victoria.
Parents who attended the Family Maths Night were able to see and share in these investigations with their children and also participated in a range of fun maths games and activities throughout the evening in each of our Primary School Houses.
This event was a great success. Parents and students participated enthusiastically and were able to experience mathematics activities which could easily be continued at home.
We look forward to next year's event with great excitement!
Works on the new Food Technology kitchen are now complete. Photos of the new classroom, which will be used for Secondary School Food Teachnology classes commencing immediately, can be found below.
The new kitchen is a great addition to the College facilities, which now boast 2 designated Food Technology spaces, a Woodwork laboratory, Textiles laboratory, 5 Visual & Studio Art classrooms, 5 Science labs, private instrumental music classrooms, an Auditorium and our Trade Skills Centre (completion at the commencement of 2016).
