Welcome to Marcellin College

A warm welcome to readers of this website, and a special welcome to Marcellin College. We are a strong Catholic, Year 7-13 co-educational college in central Auckland.  We are proud of our 56 year history on this site, a history based on the teachings and example of Jesus Christ and St Marcellin Champagnat, the founder of the Marist Brothers. We are pleased the college is named after this inspiring man of vision and achievement.

With the teachings of Christ to guide us, we strive to nurture the talents of every child in our care, to impart values that we believe are the key to personal fulfilment at and beyond school. Marcellin College is able to provide young people with a love of God, love of learning, self discipline, wide opportunities for development, and respect for others that will equip them well for adult life.

In order for our students to be positive, well adjusted and motivated, they need to be aware of the talents God has given each individual.  They need to recognise their duty to cultivate those personal strengths, to pursue success with the utmost determination.  The staff of the College is committed to helping each student to strive for and achieve personal excellence.

It is crucial that parents and guardians share our hopes for, and expectations of, their children.  The saying that "it takes a whole village to educate a child" indicates the degrees of shared understanding and co-operation that are necessary if we are to realise our goals fully.  At Marcellin College, students, parents and teachers are expected to be a close-knit community working together.
