Marcellin Technical celebrates the graduation of the Class of 2018
Marcellin Technical, a campus of Cardijn College is known for its unique program working with young people to complete their studies in the SACE alongside industry-specific training, leading to an Australian School-based Apprenticeship. Marcellin Technical is committed to supporting students beyond their Year 12 graduation with their ongoing training requirements. This model of nurturing and guiding students in senior secondary education, through training to employment is what makes Marcellin Technical unique in Australia. Offering flexible learning and pathways as students make important decisions about their future is necessary and expected. Our graduates, the class of 2018, are well prepared to leave their formal secondary schooling to enter work and take on further training.

We congratulate the Class of 2018 as skilled, critical and creative thinkers, ready to collaborate, communicate, analyse information, plan, organise and prioritise work. They are ready and able to put their technical knowledge and experience to the test, knowing that they are work-ready and on their journey to be fully-qualified and skilled tradespeople.

The Class of 2018 have been educated and trained in a Catholic school which prides itself on Catholic values inspired by the charism of St Marcellin Champagnat. Our students embrace the five Marist characteristics of Presence, Simplicity, Family Spirit, Love of Work and In the Way of Mary. Our Christian values, connected with our excellence in education and training, produce a graduate who has a well-rounded experience and skill set. The challenge for our students is to put these experiences and skills to the best use in their future and to make a real difference as a global citizen.

I extend my gratitude to all the staff at our Marcellin campus for their outstanding work with our students, their families and the community. Their dedication, their service and commitment to providing outstanding quality in education and training is widely recognised and acknowledged.

Our class of 2018 has excelled in their completion of Year 12. This is verified by the significant number of students who have completed their SACE and training requirements and are recipients of commendations and awards. I extend my congratulations to every student graduating and to their families. Special congratulations to Hannah Watson who was awarded the Apprentice of the Year Award sponsored by REDARC. Hannah is an outstanding student and worthy recipient, who has excelled in the field of Hair and Beauty with her training through Clip Joint Education.

Our industry partners are a big part of our success and we thank them for their commitment, continued support and contributions. We recognise and appreciate the importance of their involvement. We especially thank REDARC, CCI, City of Onkaparinga, Catholic Education, MTA, Marist Schools Australia, MEGT, Master Plumbers SA, Australian Defence Force, Apprentice Employment Network, BOC, Caltex and Mercury Printing.

Finally, to the class of 2018, I leave you with this thought: "The past is your lesson. The present is your gift. The future is your motivation".

Marcellin Technical College now a campus of Cardijn College

Marcellin Technical College now a campus of Cardijn College
Cardijn College is pleased to announce that Marcellin Technical College has merged with Cardijn College and will be known as Marcellin Technical, a campus of Cardijn College. Marcellin Technical will continue to specialise in trade, vocational and technical education.

Since 2016, Cardijn College and Marcellin Technical College have worked in partnership to provide the best Catholic education to students of the southern suburbs, whatever career pathway they choose.

Over the past 18 months, many of the core support functions of Marcellin have been centralised at Cardijn. A combined board assumed the governance of both schools which facilitated a streamlined approach to services such as finance, marketing and communications, maintenance and ICT.

Marcellin Technical offers trade, vocational and technical training to students who wish to undertake an Australian School-based Apprenticeship (ASbA) concurrent to completing their SACE.

Cardijn College, in collaboration with southern region Catholic Primary Schools, will continue to strengthen partnerships to enable students and their families to be consistently supported throughout their transition from primary to secondary education.

This model of education ensures the continuity of pastoral care and student development from early learning, primary and middle schooling, into senior school and beyond.

For our students who commence an AsBA at Marcellin and then transition to a full apprenticeship, we offer a unique model of pastoral care. This model fosters an ongoing relationship with apprentices through our onsite RTO, MTC Training, once they have completed Year 12.

There are exciting plans for the future of Marcellin with the introduction of new courses to students from 2019 including Hairdressing, Cosmetics, Early Childhood Education and Individual Support (Ageing) and the establishment of a STEM laboratory.

Cardijn College will also undergo an expansion as we welcome our first intake of Year 7 students in 2019.

It is an exciting time for Catholic education in the southern suburbs. Families can be confident that their child's individual needs will be catered for, no matter where their skills and ambitions lead them and that a high-quality Catholic education is accessible and achievable for every student.
