Marian Connections

At Marian, we have a strong connection with our community and focus on positive relationships with our students, staff and families.


'Marian Connections' is about maintaining contact with our community through our website. Here you'll find the fortnightly message from our Principal, journals from our Student Leaders, and a wealth of Pastoral Care information to support our community.

From the Principal - 14 March 2022

It is hard to believe that the students have only been back three weeks. In this time, we have had a range of activities including our Opening School Assembly, Annual Swimming Carnival, Inaugural Virtual Open Evening and Year 7 Camp. The busyness of school life is the substance of a school and that which makes it special. It has been such a blessing to watch Marian come truly alive again over the last couple of weeks.
