On Tuesday, 12 March 2013 Marcellin College is hosting its annual Inter-House Swimming Carnival.

The Carnival will be held at Nortcote Aquatic and Recreation Centre at 170 Victoria Road, Nortcote. The format for the Carnival will be normal pastoral for all, followed by these arrangements:

Years 10 – 12
Years 10-12 students will leave the College after Morning Pastoral and will exit Northcote Aquatic and Recreation Centre, Northcote by 12.00 noon. Years 10-12 students are able to go home at the completion of the carnival. Buses have been organized to go to Doncaster, Heidelberg station and Marcellin College.

Years 7 – 9
Year 7-9 students will have normal classes for Periods 1 and 2 on this day (Day 2). They will depart the College at 11.15 am for the Carnival and will return by 3.00 pm.

Uniform requirements

Students are required to attend the day wearing the Official College PE uniform:

o Pale Blue Marcellin sports polo top or the Official House colour T-shirt (crew neck)

o Maroon Marcellin PE shorts

o Maroon Marcellin track pants

o Appropriate footwear (no open toe-shoes or thongs)

For students in Years 11 or 12 who no longer possess the official College PE Uniform, they are required to attend the College in Full Summer Uniform. The only bag students are permitted to bring is the official Marcellin school bag. It would be ideal if students wore their bathers under their uniform to minimise changing time at the pool. All students are to bring appropriate bathers to change into, a towel, cap or sun hat, sunscreen for protection and any other necessary swimming equipment.

The Official House colour t-shirt is available from:

Bob Stewart’s

201 – 211 High Street, KEW VIC 3101

Telephone: 9853 8429

As this is a normal school day, it is the expectation of the College that students follow basic rules as set out in the student planner. No mobile phones and other electronic devices should be brought to the Northcote Aquatic and Recreation Centre.

In the event of a medical issue the College will access current student medical information on file. If medical information pertaining to your son has changed since the commencement of 2013 parents are required to submit a completed medical form by Monday, 04 March to Student Services. This form can be found on our website.

This is a compulsory school day and all students are expected to attend. Those students who do not attend must bring a medical certificate upon their return to school to explain their absence. Students are encouraged to bring a snack, their lunch and adequate amounts of water as they will not have canteen access on the day.

In the event of inclement weather, the College will notify the community of a cancellation via the Marcellin website. A normal school day will then occur and students will be expected to bring the necessary equipment.

Recent history has shown that the annual Inter-House Swimming Carnival has been effective in promoting College spirit and student and staff collegiality. We look forward to another productive day.
