On Wednesday 15 August and Friday 17 August, our K-12 College community celebrated the Feast of the Assumption. This is the Feast day chosen for the Marist Brothers at the time of their foundation by Saint Marcellin Champagnat, the founder of the Marist Brothers and of Marist Education.
Primary Feast of the Assumption Celebrations
Our Primary School students gathered together to celebrate the Feast of the Assumption with a Mass, Buddy Day activities and also a Lap-a-thon to raise funds for Australian Marist Solidarity.
Marcellin Campus Assumption Day Mass
On Wednesday 15 August students at the Marcellin Campus celebrated the Feast of the Assumption with a Senior School Mass.
All K-6 money raised on Friday 17 August will be pooled with the money raised by the Marcellin Campus on Friday 8 June (Years 7–12 Chamapgnat Fete Day) and will be given to ‘Kuya’, an Australian Marist Solidarity NGO supporting children living on the streets in Manila. This project is visited by our Year 11 students on the Philippines Immersion. Our Year 11 students (as part of their visit to Kuya) learn about how these much needed funds are used to support homeless and vulnerable young people on the streets of Manila as part of their ‘street retreat’ in December.
