Marcellin College Past and Present Mothers

Past and Present Mothers Lunch

The annual Past and Present Mothers Lunch was held on Monday August 22nd.
Once again it was lovely to welcome back to the school many of our past Mums who have been coming to this event for many years (and indeed some of them were the original organisers of it!).
As well we were very happy to welcome many of our current mothers and especially new Year 7 Mums. We also had a table of ‘outgoing’ Year 12 Mums who have promised to return as Past Mothers in 2017.
The day began with Mass celebrated by Father Mario Zammit. A very special service with many participants and a great contribution from Fiona Dyball and the Champagnat Choir. The service was very well received and we would like to thank Fr Mario and the Choir for leading us in our worship.
The Mums then headed into the Functions Room where they were welcomed with a glass of champagne. Much conversation and catching up then began!....

The Johnston Collection June 2016

A group of Marcellin's Past and Present Mothers met at The Pullman on the Park on a crisp Tuesday morning in June to be collected by mini-bus for a tour of Hecker Guthrie rearranges William Johnston's Collection.

The Johnston Collection is an historic townhouse in East Melbourne filled with William Johnston's amazing collection of antiques, artwork and collectables.  Three times a year, the collection is "rearranged" and our group were fortunate to enjoy the arrangement of Paul Hecker and Hamish Guthrie, of Hecker Guthrie, a most respected Melbourne interior design studio.  The tour led by Anne, was incredibly informative, and there was nothing she didn't know about the hundreds of antiques and collectables that were on display.

All of the ladies present had a lovely morning and thoroughly enjoyed this fascinating collection.  On return to The Pullman, they met for a coffee, de-brief and starting planning where the next event.  Stay tuned...
