There is nothing quite like it - Football brings a crowd to Marcellin just about every time. And when it is an AGSV First XVIII Grand Final against our friends and local rivals Ivanhoe Grammar, well, no more said. A great afternoon for fans of Australian Rules. For the record, Marcellin prevailed - an astonishing third consecutive AGSV Premiership. An amazing show of passion from the fans, matched only by the skill and athleticism of the players.

Today we celebrated the selfless contribution our wonderful mums, past and present, have made (and continue to make) to Marcellin College. The annual Past and Present Mum's Mass and Luncheon is an institution at Marcellin. When the Foundation was established, we assumed the stewardship of this day with the blessing of the outgoing organising committee. It is a great privilege.

This Friday (August 4th) our Marcellin First XVIII Football team will be competing against Ivanhoe Grammar, for the chance to win their 3rd AGSV premiership in a row.

Our canteen will be open, so plenty of food will be available (A big thank you to our canteen volunteers and Friends of Marcellin Football for volunteering their support).

We would love to see as many members of the Marcellin community as possible, so bring your friends down to the Marcellin Bray Oval this Friday, as our boys chase Marcellin history.

ABC journalist, author, and great story teller; Steve Sailah sat down with us in his home in Sydney, where we discussed everything from his time as a student at Marcellin (Old Collegian 1967) through his distinguished journalism career, and more recently his time as a published author. A must hear story, listen to our interview here: https://soundcloud.com/marcellinfoundation/steve-sailah-interview

Today the Marcellin Business Network met off site for a fun and informative breakfast at the Melbourne Audi Centre in the CBD.

Past Parent David Aussems (Sales Manager) was our host for the day. We would like to thank him for offering the amazing Audi premises as the breakfast location, and for facilitating (along with his staff) the whole morning.

We would also like to thank Andrei Zaitzev (Managing Director) for his interesting presentation on the state of play with the automotive industry and the Zagame family, especially Adrian (OC'94) for also being there.

There was a great turnout of guests including many new faces, and lots of regulars as well. They were able to network whilst wandering amongst the Audi cars and enjoying a delicious breakfast.

Yesterday, on a beautiful winter sunny morning 16 Canterbury Roaders met at the corner of The Ridge and Canterbury Road for a nostalgic wander around where the original school stood.

Of course there is nothing left to show of Marcellin's legacy now except a plaque placed on the wall in Canterbury Road near the pedestrian lights. However the men reminisced about the school and buildings, where they used to walk and what they used to get up to. Richard Olive very kindly presented a short and informative talk on some of the history of the buildings and area.

We then visited next door which in Marcellin days was the Nurses accommodation (and is now a retirement home). Many of our guests recalled gazing up at the windows to view some of the nurses while sitting in the classroom!

The group then walked through the streets of Camberwell to the Railway station (again lots of memories provoked) ending up at a cafe for coffee and cake and lots more chat.

It was a wonderful event, and we hope to see many Canterbury Roaders at our future 'Fellowship' events
