Message from the Tumuaki/Principal -

Ms. Maria Prescott

Tēnā koutou, Mālō e laumalie and 你好 Nǐ hǎo Marcellin whānau!

We come to the end of another busy term and it was wonderful to see the many opportunities in which our ākonga and staff demonstrated the Marist Pillar of the year: Aroaro / Presence.

Our ākonga demonstrated Aroaro in the Uike Kātoanga’i ‘o e lea faka-Tonga / Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori and New Zealand Chinese Language weeks in the way they embraced and celebrated the different cultures of our kura/school.

One of the actions for our third strategic goal is to grow Te Ao Māori including the language. It has been great to see our kura growing from strength to strength in the use of te reo Māori in everyday school life. Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori was an important reminder for our Marcellin whānau to continue to lift the language.

Our Sacraments of Initiation Mass was a blessed, holy and celebratory time for us as a Marcellin whānau to demonstrate Aroaro/Presence as Christian Witnesses for the candidates and their whānau. This was followed by the Haka competition between the four Whānau rōpu. The school haka was designed by Letyna Leniu (Te Rarawa and Ngāpuhi) and her matua, Mikaira Pau at the end of 2017 and the kaupapa is reference to our patron Saint Marcellin Champagnat, and the wearing of Christ’s korowai, Aroha. It was a proud moment to watch all the ākonga perform the Marcellin haka together as a whole school with pride and understanding! Ngā mihi kia koutou to all our Whānau prefects and Year 13 leaders as well as the Kaitātaki leaders who passed on the knowledge and kaupapa of the Hato Maherino haka to their teina / younger brothers and sisters.

Our Year 11 to 13 ākonga will be completing their final internal assessments and preparing for the Senior Practice Exams in the first week of Term Four. Senior full academic reports will be emailed to whānau at the end of this week and will include all assessment grades published to date, attitudes and a comment for each subject area. Please continue to encourage your tamariki to revise thoroughly and ask their kaiako if they have any questions.

Ngā mihi kia koutou / Mālō ‘aupito / 谢谢 Xiè xiè to our Marcellin staff, ākonga and whānau for your continual support of our kura, especially for your contributions to the development of our Strategic Plan 2024 - 2025. The survey is still available for any whānau that have not yet completed the ‘Kōrero Mai, Talanoa Mai Marcellin Whānau’ Google Form - see details below.

Praying for our talented senior ākonga in the Stand Up, Stand Out 23 Finals Showcase for Music AND Dance this weekend, and that our tamariki and staff have a safe and well deserved holiday.

‘Rapu i te Pai’

Ngā mihi nui Marcellin whānau,
Ms. Maria Prescott

Staff Recognition of Excellence in the Auckland Region

Congratulations to Mrs. Leah Holland, (Director of Learning Support / SENCO) who was recognised for her service and leadership as the recipient of the Auckland Down Syndrome Association Community Service Award 2023. Whānau members of the Āwhina Ako wrote the following nomination that was read out at the award ceremony:

“Leah, you are a beacon of light in our community, and you make an enormous difference with the work you do. Your impact reaches far beyond the classroom – building positive and meaningful futures for our loved ones. Your strong belief in the capabilities of each student shines bright within your school, your whanau and wider community.

Leah fosters the concept of Whanaungatanga in her students – developing a great sense of
belonging and identity and feeling part of the school community.
Manaakitanga is all about protecting the mana and hearts of others. This value is about the value of treating all others with love, empathy and respect. Leah demonstrates this with all her students. Students and whanau are warmly into her learning hub and included so everyone enjoys a sense of belonging.”

Mrs. Leah Holland is an example of our Marist Pillar of the year, Aroaro / Presence, being available to others without expecting anything in return.

Special Character

The Sacraments of Initiation Mass

On the 12th of September we celebrated fourteen of our ākonga who received their Sacraments of Initiation: Baptism, Confirmation and First Holy Communion. We were blessed and honored to have our school Chaplain Monsignor Bernard with us and confer the Sacraments. It was a wonderful occasion shared with our Marcellin whānau. Thank you to Mrs Rodrigues who worked with our ākonga and made sure they were well prepared. It is a blessing to see so many new members of the Catholic Church. We pray for each of our candidates and their whānau that God bless them may the Holy Spirit guide them on their journey as disciples of Christ, spreading the Good News in words and deeds.

Year 12 Retreat

Our year 12 Retreat at St John Vianney was a fantastic experience. All Year 12 ākonga engaged in their Retreat program. This Retreat was run by NET Ministries. The theme of the Retreat was Untitled. The focus was in Servant Leadership. All our ākonga were engaged and participated in all activities. Stand-outs were Alisha Lavea and Charlene Stowers.

Tongan Language Week

Si’oto’ofa, Mālō ‘Eiki for a beautiful uike lea FakaTonga for 2023. Our ākonga enjoyed vibrant celebrations that consisted of food, attire, hiva, performances and so much more. This years theme was 'E tu'uloa 'a e Lea faka-Tongá 'o ka lea'aki 'i 'api, siasí (lotú), mo e nofo-'a-kāingá, which means the Tongan Language will be sustainable if used at home, church and in the wider community.

Mālō ‘aupito kihe ngaahi fa’e na’e tuku taimi ke tokoni mai kihe ‘emau ‘u polokalama. We are so blessed to have Tongan families, staff and students who share the same passion which made our week successful.

Here are some of the shots from our TLW 2023:

Hospitality Dinner

Our story unfolds in a modest classroom, where the ordinary was transformed into something truly extraordinary. This unassuming space was magically converted into an elegant dining room, radiating sophistication and charm.
At the heart of this remarkable evening were our five remarkable Āwhina ako ākonga. They took center stage, their talents and abilities shining bright. While our Hospitality ākonga played a vital support role, it was the Āwhina ako ākonga who captured everyone's attention.

This night was not the result of one department's effort but a harmonious collaboration. The Careers Department, the Technology Department, and our dedicated Learning Support team joined forces to craft an unforgettable experience.

As our Āwhina ako ākonga diligently helped to prepare, cook, and serve a three-course feast to over 20 esteemed guests from local businesses, the room buzzed with anticipation. Their dedication and passion were unmistakable, leaving an indelible mark on all in attendance.

The true marvel of this evening? In just a matter of days, our efforts were rewarded. Our esteemed guests, deeply impressed by the capabilities and professionalism of our Āwhina ako ākonga, reached out with opportunities for work experience and potential employment.

This event whispers of possibilities and resilience. It's a testament to the boundless potential that resides within each Āwhina ako ākonga, offering a glimpse of the promising future ahead.

This is merely the prologue. We're on a collective journey to destroy barriers, celebrate diversity, and kindle the flames of success for these amazing students.

Year 7 Te Reo Māori Class

On Friday 15th of September, the year seven te reo Māori class celebrated the end of the taster by cooking parāoa parai - fried bread. We also learnt the kupu for the main ingredients. Ākonga showed excellent Wairua o te Whānau (family spirit) as they worked together to cook a delicious spread!

Whānau Haka Competition

We continued our celebrations after Sacramental Mass in Term Three with our Whānau Haka Competition. It was a great way to embrace and celebrate Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori - Māori Language Week!

Whakawhetai to our judges, Mrs Holland, Mr Osofua & Miss Mayall.

Whakamihi to our ākonga and staff for your mahi! Each whānau performed with ihi, wehi and wana, which are authority, respect and exhilaration.

Whānau overall ranking:
1st place = Benedict
2nd place = MacKillop
3rd place = Aubert
4th place = Pompallier

New Board Student Representative - Malachi Mala'itai



At the close of nominations at noon Tuesday 5th September 2023, the following nomination was received for the student representative vacancy on the Board of Trustees.

Malachi Mala’itai

I hereby declare the following duly elected:

Malachi Mala’itai

Kind regards,

Wayne Jamieson
Returning Officer
Ni sa Bula Vinaka, Malo le soifua manuia. My name is Malachi Mala’itai and I am of Fijian and Samoan descent.
My involvement with Young Vinnies, Remar and Student Council has enhanced my understanding of Marcellin College. This has strengthened me to be more confident, approachable and proactive.
I believe I have the ability to act accordingly as your student representative. I demonstrate education and life with God being at the centre of it all. If our heavenly Father is at the centre of our decisions, choices and actions, what can go wrong?
Our students must understand that education is one of the main keys to success; education must be taken seriously. We are blessed enough to receive education everyday at school, however in the end, the choice is up to the individual on how and if they utilise this education. Are you taking your education seriously?
In today's society we can identify that predominantly, the younger generations are finding it hard with the basics of literacy and numeracy. Marcellin College’s 2017 ERO (Education Review Office) report showed that in 2016, only 40% of year 8 students achieved at or above the standards. This means that a staggering 60% did not achieve.
We need to raise the achievement standards of our students. I believe that there is a need to reinforce the drive and determination of our students to enable them to be self motivated learners. To execute this, the relationships between our school, students, and homes must be strengthened. This includes supporting the learner by understanding their "environment" and how it can be enhanced, supported and utilised to best meet their needs.
We may not know all the answers for the future progression regarding our students and their families, but together we can aid our Marcellin community and find strategic plans to advance our ideas from good to effective.

Ngā mihi kia koe Eniselini Ali Fusitua for your leadership and service as the Ākonga representative at the Marcellin College Board over the last year.

Marcellin College Annual School Ball

On Saturday the 9th of September we held the annual Marcellin College School Ball. This year we held it at the Ellerslie Events Centre and the theme was 'Las Vegas'. It was a fantastic evening where we had just over 150 attendees form our Marcellin College Community. The ākonga who attended the ball were mature, responsible and danced the night away!

A special thanks goes to Mr Mildon who organsied the school ball with the ball committee. As well as the office administration staff who collected payments, printed tickets and made the whole event run smoothly.

Senior Tutorials

The following tutorials are being offered during the upcoming holidays:
In Week 1 of Term Four our Senior Practice Exams begin. All Year 11 - 13 ākonga are expected to be present on the first day back for revision, with exams beginning the next day. These examinations will take place in the MacKillop block, where the morning paper begins at 9 a.m. and the afternoon one starts at 1.15 p.m. Attendance is compulsory and ākonga must be in full school uniform with the correct equipment.
These exams will serve as a crucial component of our learning process and the results could be used as a Derived Grade if your child is absent for valid reasons in the November NCEA Examinations (NZQA - Derived Grades). Please also remind ākonga of the Exam rules for students:: NZQA - External assessment.

Important Notes about Practice Exams and Derived Grades

Schools must be able to assure NZA that derived grades are collected in a way that mirrors the format and conditions of the externally assessed standard. This means that if ākonga engage in the following we will not be able to assure conditions and practice exam results will not be used for a derived grade:
  • Leaving the exam for a toilet break more than once
  • A toilet break that lasts more than five minutes
  • Leaving full-screen mode in a digital exam
  • Using notes
  • Communicating with or disturbing other candidates in any way
  • Accessing a mobile phone or any digital device (including a watch)
With our Senior Practice Exams taking place in Term Four, we will be moving all Yr 7-10 classes into homerooms for the term, starting on the first day back:


Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori

This week our kura celebrated Te Wiki o Te Reo Māori with activities and learning about the history of our beautiful language during Kaitiaki classes in the mornings. Ākonga and Kaiako have all been encouraged to use kī waha (Māori phrases) through a video challenge. The highlight of the week was our Whanau haka competition with Benedict placing 1st with a powerful haka performance led by our Head Boy, Azael Setu Uini-Faiva.

Faculty of Languages

The Moana Pasifika club has been busy learning songs in Rotuman, Cook Island, Samoan, Tongan and performing for our school at assemblies. We’ve also welcomed a number of cultural speakers to come in and engage with our ākonga during Language weeks.

Marcellin College hosted a Tongan Pasifika Exchange for Tongan Language Week with Manurewa High School students. The experience was priceless as our ākonga spent the day being immersed in the Tongan Culture starting with a Tongan liturgy and workshops that included Ngatu making, singing, dancing and learning of the rich history of Tonga.

Head of Faculty - Languages, Mrs. Cheryl Schuster

Faculty of Maths

On August 24th, Marcellin College took one Year 7 Team and one Year 8 Team to the Auckland Mathex Competition at the Barfoot and Thompson Stadium. Our ākonga enjoyed themselves and our Year 7 ākonga are looking forward to next year's competition. Congratulations to our participants who represented our school with pride.

Year 7 Blake Explorer - Virtual Reality

On Thursday Ramere 27 July Hongongoi,the Year 7 ākonga experienced a Virtual Reality underwater programme, all thanks to Grace and Alice from BLAKE Explorers. Blake is a company named after and dedicated to Sir Peter Blake and their purpose is to encourage people to care for the environment.

On their visit they showed the Year 7’s what a healthy ocean should look like and what it should not look like.They explained how this affects us and the sea creatures, they showed us all sorts of sea animals through virtual reality, like orcas, whales, fish and more! And all of the footage was filmed in New Zealand land and waters. They explained the limits to fishing and that if we over fish it impacts both humans and the coral reefs in a serious way. We had such an amazing time with Grace and Alice, we hope to see them again next year!

"Take Home Pay" Director Visit

Today (Friday 15th September), the year nines went to a presentation by the director of the film Take Home Pay, Stallone Vaiaoga-Ioasa. We are studying the film in class this term. We all really enjoyed the presentation and the way the director explained the film really well. Stallone talked about the meaning behind the film and some of the scenes. He also talked about the money, dedication and creativity required to make a film. The director inspired us to take opportunities, and to be innovative. His message was that we should do what we're passionate about and live our lives to the fullest. At the end of the presentation, a lot of students asked the director for autographs and photos.(Written by Leandra Natoealofa, Kathlyn Kampitan, Alana Cains, Elija Sanonu and Kyle Soriba.

Year 8 Technology Class Collaborative Artwork

My Year 8 Technology class have worked this term on a collaborative piece of artwork for the library. Each student sewed, painted and decorated a strip of fabric that represents who they are. Then we wove them together into the cross to represent the different cultures, interests and personalities that make Marcellin College what it is.

We are the Divisional Grade Champions, the students played a wonderful final winning it in a flawless display of attack and defense.

Lead by Ngaitanoa Ngata and Aylah Stowers we are very proud of their efforts capped off by a beautiful try on the hooter to Vaohea Vaihau who dived in for a magnificent try.

After the presentation of the awards, we went and supported our basketball team win against Pompallier College.

Te Whatu Hauora - Minor Health Conditions Service

This winter, between Monday 12 June and Saturday 30 September, participating community pharmacies in Auckland will provide a Minor Health Conditions Service for Māori and Pacific people, children aged under 14 years, and community service card holders.

The service allows pharmacists to have a clinical consultation and provide advice as well as medication if needed for a select set of minor health conditions no cost to the patient.

It also includes whānau members of a child with similar symptoms. For example, if the pharmacist determines your child needs treatment for scabies and they have older brothers or sisters, or you yourself also have symptoms, they may provide advice and medication for all of you.

The following health conditions are included in the Minor Health Conditions Service:
  • Acute diarrhoea
  • Dehydration
  • Eye inflammation and infections
  • Scabies
  • Headlice
  • Pain and fever
  • Eczema/Dermatitis
  • Minor skin infections
If your condition needs further support, the pharmacist can tell you the best place to go to get further help.

Let’s spread the word to our friends and whānau about this new service! It’s also important to remember that you can always speak to your local pharmacist for free health advice, even if you are not eligible for this service.

Participating pharmacies can be found by going to HealthPoint and searching “Minor Health Conditions”. You can also find a list here https://smex12-5-en-ctp.trendmicro.com:443/wis/clicktime/v1/query?url=www.tewhatuora.govt.nz%2fgo%2dwell&umid=03f15db0-214a-489f-8314-00eb263ff8f0&auth=a274b9305a0a6774f29265a98f8f893dbafe8641-7336a07cf314fecd43e11828bcc2ef38514cf6e9.
