The Visual Arts & Design domain at Marymede Catholic College continues to go from strength to strength as students across Prep to Year 12 embrace their creativity within a range of subjects including Digital Technologies, Food Studies, Media, Textiles, Wood, Studio Arts, Visual Communication & Design and more.

Each year, our College seeks out as many opportunities as we can to present and display the works of our students in all year levels.

In 2019, a variety of artworks were submitted for display at the Whittlesea Show, an event which Marymede has strong history with. We were extremely proud to announce some outstanding results within the Secondary category as the hard work and endeavours of many students were able to recognised on a larger scale.

Stephanie Ceola (Year 11) was awarded Best Secondary Exhibit in the Digital Artwork category for her work which represents the cultural context of the environment and sustainability in today's world. The object was photographed and then edited to form a digital composition.

Meanwhile our endeavours in Product Design & Technology: Wood were featured heavily with Taya Hepburn (Year 9) and Exavier Whitnall (Year 9) recognised for some outstanding pieces of work. Taya was awarded 2nd Place in the Secondary 'Woodwork' category, whilst Exavier took home a clean sweep placing 1st in the Secondary ''Woodwork' category but also winning 'Best Secondary Exhibit' and 'Most Outstanding Exhibit'. A exceptional feat with supervisors from the Whittlesea Show acknowledging that it is rare for one piece to win all 3 awards.

Stephanie, Taya and Exavier's works can all be seen in addition to a variety of other pieces at our Visual Arts & Design Exhibition which will run in the Science Centre until 27 November. The Expo features works from Prep to Year 12, with the following pieces announced as Exhibition Award Recipients at the conclusion of Opening Night last week:

Daniel Preziuso (Year 12, Visual Communication Design)
Principal’s Award – Acquisition of artwork for the school’s permanent collection, selected by Mr Michael Kenny.

George El-Azar (Year 12, Product Design and Technology – Wood)
Calthorpe Award – Most outstanding work chosen by the College Board. 

Hayley Smyth (Year 11, Studio Arts)
People’s Choice Award – Voted by opening night guests.

In further news, works on our new Materials Design & Technology Building continue to move along nicely with the building expected to be completed and ready for classes throughout 2020, giving our students yet another purpose-built, first class facility to explore their talents and aspire to achieve excellence.

We are excited to announce that Marymede Early Learning Centre has been rated as Exceeding National Quality Standard under the National Quality Framework as assessed by the Department of Education and Training in July of this year.

The National Quality Standard (NQS) sets a national benchmark for the quality of children’s education and care services across Australia.  Services are assessed against the NQS by the state or territory regulatory authority and receive a rating for each of the seven quality areas of the NQS, as well as an overall rating.

An outstanding achievement by our Director Naomi Rigney and her team - in just a little of 12 months of operation. 

Marymede Early Learning Centre prides itself on not only providing children with an enjoyable and enriching Kindergarten education, but also preparing students adequately for their ensuing Primary education. We understand that all stages of education are important but in particular the early transition years, as they can place extra challenges on students and their families.

In addition to the Centre’s contemporary indoor and outdoor learning space, we offer children a unique opportunity to access the facilities, resources and specialist learning areas of Marymede Catholic College. This enables our children to experience the contemporary resources of a P-12 school including a Resource Centre, Fitness Centre, Art Laboratories and sporting fields.
