Thank you for indicating on the Volunteer form that you filled in late last year, that you were interested in FOMPA (Friends of Marcellin Performing Arts).
The biggest event for the year is the whole school Music Concert which this year takes place on the evening of Thursday, August 17. It's a fantastic night showcasing our very talented boys all the way from the whole of Year 7 up to the VCE students. It's FOMPAs biggest gig and a great night to get involved and volunteer.
We would love you to 'save the date' and think about how you would like to participate.
We need parents to:
Please fill in one or more of the above boxes. Many hands make light work and it's another great way to meet other parents from different year levels and to show your son your willingness to be involved.
One of the highlights in the school’s calendar is the Whole School Annual Music Concert.
A logistical nightmare for the Arts and Music staff….getting a full band off the stage and another one up ready to play in a very short time is not easy.

On Saturday August 23rd, as our wonderful community of glammed up parents arrived dressed to impress, our Marcellin Stage Band were also taking centre stage (literally!).
The boys in the band, ably led by Matthew Thomas and Chris Bevens entertained our parents with some fantastic music, while the parents mingled and chatted. The boys set a great mood for the evening.
On the 13th of August the Year 8 boys involved in Marcellin College’s Instrumental Classroom Music program played host to the Girls from Siena College’s Concert Band and String Orchestra. The day was designed to give the boys an authentic musical experience outside their usual classroom setting and the opportunity to perform to their parents and friends. For some this would be the last opportunity to perform and engage in an ensemble and the music staff felt that this incursion was a fantastic opportunity to give our boys a wonderful experience to remember Marcellin College music by.
The FOMPA year has kicked off with a very successful Launch event in late March.Read More
