Marcellin College PTFA Proposed Uniform for 2014
The PTFA have looked at several different uniforms over the past two years for Marcellin College as parents and students have expressed their concerns at the need for three uniform changes and the high cost of these, along with the unavailability of the tartan fabric. The PTFA and BOT must make a decision on the proposed uniform by May 2013 so your feedback is important for us to take a decision to the Board to consider for approval.
Junior Tartan Skirt:
The supplier of our school uniform is unable to source the Red Tartan that is used for our Junior Skirts at an affordable price to parents. Their current stock has ended and the company who supplied them with the fabric has ceased business.
Green and Red Jumpers:
Over the last few years the uniform of local high schools have become very similar. We feel there is a need to make our jersey colour more distinctive and one colour for all levels. The proposed changes also aim to make uniform more affordable with only two changes of uniform over five years at school. Presently we have three uniform changes over the five years. The PTFA will have the new proposed uniform displayed at school over the next three weeks. Please fill out the form overleaf and return slip to school so that we can gauge parent opinion about the proposed changes.
The changes in uniform will be implemented as follows:
• 2014 Year 7, new Year 9, Year 11 and Year 13 students
• 2015 Year 7, new Year 9, Year 11 and Year 13 students
• 2016 all students will be in new uniform
The new uniform would be available for any student if they wanted to change in to new style earlier from 2014.

A huge thank you to the many involved in the preparation of our Samoan and Tongan Groups for the festival. There were hours of work put in by tutors, staff, parents and students and both groups can take a great deal of pride in the way they represented Marcellin College and their families at the festival and we are most grateful for their huge commitment to the students shown by so many and by the students themselves.
Congratulations to the Samoan Group who were placed first for their uniform and first equal for their exit.

Volleyball Auckland Champs vs Rutherford High (won two games); vs St Kentigerns (won two games); vs Diocesan (loss by default). The girls played excellent volleyball. Although exceptionally tired they fought hard for every point. A stunning performance by all.
A big thank you to Mr Davidson for giving up his time to come with us and to Miss Kirk and Mr Mudali for covering for a non-existent taxi. Next round vs Elim College (won two games); vs Onehunga High (lost two games). Excellent serves from Litiana Wilson. Outstanding Player of the Day: Marthe Lutu. Her athleticism, reading of the game and ball placement were exceptional. A very tired team of girls go to Saturday’s play offs.
Volleyball Play-Offs for 3rd and 4th - vs Mangere College 2 (lost two games). Player of the Game: Marthe Lutu. The team’s consistency left them, but all gave their best. They came 4th in Division 2 - well done!

Over 100 students from Years 11-13 assembled at Jellicoe Pools for the annual inter-Whanau swimming sports on Wednesday, 27 February. The participation was extremely high and the spirit amongst the Whanau awesome, in fact I would say it was one of the best swim sports I can remember. Many thanks to Miss Palmer-Oldcorn for organising it with Mr Sullivan and to all the staff who helped out on the day.
Results: 1st Benedict, 2nd Aubert, 3rd Pompallier, 4th Mackillop.

To commemorate Waitangi Day and its 173rd year since the signing of the Treaty – the Governor General, Sir Jerry Mataparae, held an annual garden party at Government House in Epsom. Elizabeth Schmidt, Litiana Wilson and Mr Weijermars attended the function which also celebrated women and triumph of New Zealand women who had made an impact on society and New Zealand life. We were privileged to meet many guests and students from various schools, as well as his Excellency, the Governor General along with the Major of Auckland, Mr Len Brown. Overall it was an historical event and a good experience for us all; meeting and mingling with people from sports players, military elite, dignitaries and other honoured guests.

On Wednesday 28th and Thursday 29th November, Marcellin College’s Year 9 and 10 Dance and Drama students celebrated their talents in our first ever show in the new Performing Arts Centre. It was an evening filled with dances from many genres; Contemporary, Hip Hop, Ballroom and Cultural with some comical and serious drama pieces all of which show cased the range and ability of our young students. It was a fabulous show on both nights and the students worked exceptionally hard to deliver performances of such a high quality.
We would like to congratulate the students on their hard work and effort and thank them for the time they gave up. We would also like to thank the parents for their support and time as without it these two evenings could not have gone ahead and been so successful.
If you would like to purchase a DVD of the evening, these are $5 each and available from Miss Nicholas in the Dance Office.

A huge thank you firstly to Mrs Stowers for this marvelous production. The musical was written and produced by her and we as a community have been greatly privileged to be the recipients of her immense talents. We have not had to pay copyright for the production either and this is a great saving for the College as well.
Mrs Stowers has been assisted throughout preparations by Ms Hunt and Ms Nicholas and their contributions to it have warranted huge commitment also. Many other staff have done much to support the production also and I thank them for their time and effort also.
The students involved, whether it be in a leading role or working backstage, can take a massive deal of pride in what they have been part of producing. As audiences poured out of the theatre after each performance the most common comment was “what an incredible amount of talent”. That talent, combined with loyalty and commitment to the production, delivered a musical production in which we can all take a huge amount of pride.
A special word of gratitude also to Epsom Girls Grammar School for their generosity in making it possible for us to produce our musical in such a professional venue.
