A Vision for Tomorrow
Transcript of A Vision for Tomorrow
In the footsteps of Saint Marcellin Champagnat
Virtute Ad Altissima
Through virtue and courage
Marcellin College is entering an exciting time of education and is well-placed to provide a contemporary and comprehensive education for young boys.
Building Teacher Capacity
A Vision for Tomorrow
The ways in which young people learn and have access to information has changed dramatically in recent years. As a result, the way in which we approach learning and teaching is changing.
The challenge for schools is to embrace and respond to this change and transform learning and teaching within their own context to ensure their students develop a deep understanding about the world, how it works and to be able to operate effectively in it (CEOM, 2011).
At Marcellin College we aim to provide a learning and teaching program that fosters the notion of lifelong learning and develops the skills necessary for our students to connect and interact with the real world.
Contemporary education in the 21st century provides opportunities for students to engage in authentic learning that allows them to collaborate, communicate, be creative, and critically think about their learning in a local and global perspective.
The use of digital technologies provides the platform for learning and teaching programs to foster such learning.
This vision strengthens our commitment to supporting the growth of our students as they strive for excellence in Spirit, Mind and Body.
We uphold these values as we walk in the footsteps of Saint Marcellin Champagnat.
Australian Curriculum including AusVELS
Refining teacher’s understanding of 21st century education
The effective use of digital technologies to enhance learning
The use of school facilities as learning spaces
Establishing a strong relationship between areas of curriculum and wellbeing
A strong sense of faith
Contemporary learning is personalised. It requires learning and teaching strategies that develop the competence and confidence of each and every learner (p.6).
Catholic school communities are responding to new ways of teaching and learning, so as to equip students to be successful learners and persons better able to meet the challenges of rapid technological and social change (p.4)
Creating new learning environments demands a whole-school approach including building teacher capacity and new curriculum design (p.5).
2010-2013 Strategic Plan
Learning & Teaching
To develop learning opportunities that incorporates student engagement, assessment and reporting and professional learning teams.
2012 Annual Report:
Marcellin College is committed to continuing to provide opportunities for our students to assist them to grow to become what Saint Marcellin Champagnat would describe as good Christians and good citizens.

CEOM 2011-2015 Directions Strategic Plan
Over the next five years there will continue to be progress in development and implementation of national curriculum, assessment and reporting, an in professional teaching and leadership standards (p.5).
In Catholic education the student is at the heart of all arrangements for teaching and learning. Contemporary learning approach is personalised, responding to the learning needs, interests and experiences of each student (p.11).
CEOM Learning Centred Schools
Curriculum is designed to ensure that all students gain the knowledge, skills and habits of mind required for success in a globalised, 21st century society and economy (p.9).
Digital Education Advisory Group Report
While the level of change required in schools is significant, it is best supported in the short to medium term by changing the emphasis of existing curricula and assessment (p.6).
Use of digital technologies
By cultivating strong school leadership, committing to ongoing professional development, and exploring innovative models like its technology-infused Future Schools, Singapore has become one of the top-scoring countries on the PISA tests.
A culture of caring
I saw an education system that personalises learning for its students. This includes the early intervention and support for students with ‘special needs’, small class sizes for middle school classes allowing teachers to know their students, schools that specialise in certain areas (sport, art, music) and an education pathway valuing academic and vocational pathways.
What are the current trends in education including the use of digital technologies?
How do we define contemporary education and 21st century learning at Marcellin College?
Professional Learning Teams
A collaborative approach through professional dialogue to engage all staff as a learning community.
Learning that is stimulating & engaging
