The Year 10 boys and staff of Marcellin College express their sincere thanks to the Trustees at Puriri Tree Foundation for allowing them to participate in the days’ activities at the Matakana Military Arts Academy. They would also like to thank the President and members of the Auckland RSA who were instrumental in organising this event. Peter Maher did an excellent job in assisting them with the day's organisation.
The armed services personnel who assisted on the day, along with Max Carpenter, the manager for the Centre, were exceptionally supportive and helpful with the organisation and running of the event. They were most receptive and friendly with the boys, making them feel welcome and prepared them well for the assault on the confidence course.
To say that the boys enjoyed themselves would be an understatement as the boys were most exuberant after the event. When they were shown the first part of the confidence course they were fairly assured of themselves that it was an easy enough task, but when the course instructors took them beyond the first stage of the course the dynamics of the group changed to a more serious and sombre note and the true character of each individual came to the fore. Those who really pushed themselves to be overly helpful at the start suddenly found themselves needing support from their team mates. Those who started off giving encouragement through leadership also found themselves having to be led through the course as they faltered through their own fitness. Particularly impressive was how the teams rallied around to help each member through the course and never left a member behind. The boys were certainly challenged to their limit, both physically and mentally, and the day’s event will stay with them as a positive memory for a long time to come.

We were privileged to have ex-student Joseph Parker visit Marcellin last Tuesday and speak to the Assembly. Joseph is achieving great things in the boxing world and his humility is a great example to all. His message to the students was very much about doing things rather than talking about doing things. He was very quick to offer any assistance he could to the College. We wish him well in his professional career.

Congratulations to Elizabeth Schmidt, Litiana Wilson and Steven Bencito, who represented France at the Model United Nations for two days last week. Along with 97 other teams they debated such international issues as the economic crisis in Europe, child exploitation, preserving the earth’s biodiversity and the Syrian crisis. Litiana managed to have her amendment to the remit on child exploitation accepted by the assembly. The team took one of the seventeen awards made at the end of MUNA 2013 – as runners-up in the Best Costume category.

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.
