The school was founded in 1950 by the Marist Brothers originally in Camberwell. A senior school campus was opened in Bulleen for years 6 to 12 with the Camberwell campus catering for years 3 to 6 before it closed in 1993.
Marcellin College is a Catholic secondary school which was founded by the Marist Brothers to meet the educational needs of boys in this area of Melbourne.
Marcellin is owned and conducted by the Marist Brothers and it derives its inspiration from the traditions and spirit of the Brothers, the teachings of the Church and current educational theory and practice. The name Marcellin comes from the founder of the Marist Brothers, Saint Marcellin Champagnat.
Marcellin Champagnat had very simple and yet rich directions for his schools. His schools were asked to provide opportunities for the young entrusted to their care and to encourage the students to develop their individual talents to the fullest. This is the challenge that Marist schools have endeavoured to meet for the past 200 years.
The College motto is – Virtute Ad Altissima, meaning ‘Strive for the highest with Virtue and Courage’. The motto places before us the ideal to provide Marcellin students with opportunities to develop their fullest possible potential.
Student Leadership program
There is an established Student Representative Council which allows students to be actively involved in various College matters to help organise functions and events relative to their student body. There is a SRC representative in each year level for each house for years 7 to 11. In year 12 there is a College Captain and two Vice Captains as well as House Captains and Vice Captains for their representative houses, who form the SRC Executive Committee. 2008 saw the introduction of various Academic Captains including LOTE and various Performing Arts Captains. This was also the year for the first World Youth Day Captain in conjunction with the World Youth Day event held in the same year with the position being called the Liturgy Captain for future years.
