Darren Mort - Alumni Masters Series

We were so incredibly fortunate to have one of our esteemed Old Collegians, Darren Mort (Alumnus 1978), come back to share his incredible story with some of our students, parents and other old collegians.

Darren’s story of a vast career from Law to writing and producing plays and short films, acting and recently, author of a children’s book, was delivered with his fantastic sense of humour and down-to-earth warmth.

We thank Darren for taking time out of his extremely busy life to give back to the Marcellin community. Everyone in attendance found Darren’s presentation insightful and very entertaining.

The Marcellin and OLMC Fun Run on Sunday 24 March was a wonderful success and a fabulous community event. We were blessed with perfect autumn weather to top off the day. The day kicked off at 8am with the running enthusiasts in the 6km run. See the results here.

At 9am, the 3km and 1.5km Colour Run/Walk commenced and there was a sea of white shirts heading off from the start line toward the first colour station. It didn’t take long before the white turned to a rainbow of colour.

The many participants had a fun and healthy morning out and stayed on to enjoy the great food stalls and coffee whilst being entertained by our resident DJ’s Jack and Rhys.

Thanks to those who participated in this event. All proceeds will go to the Marcellin Foundation and OLMC’s Bell-Bardia Food Program.

1978 40 Year Reunion

DSC_6699.jpg

The Class of 1978 were blessed with a warm and balmy night on Friday 16th November for their 40th reunion.   The group met at Marcellin College for a school tour led by Old Collegian (1981) and Marcellin Foundation Manager Chris Mirabella. Many had not been back to Marcellin since they left 40 years  ago, so were duly impressed by the new buildings and improvements that have taken place over the years, but especially of the new Hermitage Building. 

After the tour, the group headed over to the Manningham Hotel (aka The Sentimental Bloke) for canapes and drinks accompanied by lots of reminiscing, story telling and laughter which continued well into the night. 

Steve McCarthy did the formal welcome, Adrian Collins (1978 School Captain) prepared a speech the ever entertaining John Canavan provided a comedy routine.

A big thank you to our organising committee who worked so hard to find and connect with people and encourage them to come along; Andrew Cullinan, Rob Tankey and Steve McCarthy.

Marcellin College Business Network - Kooyong Tennis Courts

The Marcellin Business Network ventured to Kooyong Lawn Tennis Courts for our latest event.
The venue proved to be a popular choice and as the sun came up it was great to view the expanse of beautiful courts in front of us.

Kylie Bell from Wren Learning was our presenter for the day.  The topic on Self Determination Theory was most interesting and inspiring to all participants.

Kylie focussed on Intrinsic as opposed to Extrinsic motivational factors and how these can affect how we perform.  We were provided with concrete examples of how the Motivation Continuum can  influence our behaviours and were able to see how different types of employer can have a direct influence on employee outcomes.

The themes of Relatedness, Competency and Autonomy were covered and again Kylie engaged the group in interactive learning to reinforce her teachings. 

If anyone would like to speak to Kylie about her running a session at your places of business please contact her on:  kylie@wrenlearning.com.au or 0417 445 432.

2018 Mothers Day Breakfast

This year, due to ever-increasing demand (and the sellout of the first breakfast in less than a minute), the MCCA are very proud to have hosted two Mothers Day Breakfasts over 8 and 9 May.  Both events were a sellout, and a huge success.  The highlight was a special video presentation of some of the boys, who sent their very honest and heartfelt Mothers Day messages to their Mums. 

Over $2,000 was raised in the raffle that run over the two days. This money will go toward  families who are experiencing illness and need a bit of extra support.

This session focused on using the Linked In Sales Navigator application.  It was presented by LinkedIn's Vanessa Rudnick - who is a specialist in the practice of Social selling

Vanessa was able to demonstrate how using Sales Navigator could target more quickly potential clients and how one would go about doing that with hands on examples.

Our audience found the session very engaging (with a few sales leads and follow ups for Vanessa) and we thank Vanessa for her input and time.
