Michael Newman, Headmaster

At Marist College Ashgrove, we are very proud of the role we play in transforming the lives of our young students through education. The Marist philosophy aims to develop our students into young men with strong minds and gentle hearts. Like St Marcellin Champagnat, the French founder of the Marist Brothers, our college aims to develop our young men into “good Christians and good people”.

In 2021, Marist College Ashgrove educated nine students through the generous support of the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation (AIEF). Like so many AIEF Scholarship Students before them, these boys involved themselves in the vast array of activities available across the College throughout their year. These boys were a credit to themselves as people, their Indigenous culture and to the college at large.

We note the outstanding achievements of Ky, a Year 12 student residing in the Brother Terrence dormitory. Ky was the recipient of both the Eric Law Award for leadership demonstrated by an Indigenous student, the Brother Harold Memorial Award for success in applied vocational studies and the QATSIF Young Leader Award. Notably, alongside team mate and Co- Captain Haydon, he was the first Indigenous Captain of the First XIII in the history of Marist College Ashgrove. Academically, Ky was the Dux of Essential English and participated in numerous cultural activities such as the Harmony Day Celebration and NAIDOC Assembly.

Haydon, a Year 12 student, also resided in the Brother Terrence dormitory. He was involved in various sporting teams and undertook his academic studies seriously whilst at the college. Alongside team mate and Co-Captain Ky, he was the first Indigenous Captain of the First XIII in the history of Marist College Ashgrove. Haydon studied accounting and undertook a Certificate III in Fitness. In addition, he was a Brisbane Broncos Senior EPD member and a member of the First XV Rugby Union and First XIII Rugby league team. Haydon intends on furthering his Sport and Exercise Science studies at university in Townsville.

Year 11 student Cadell completed a sound year. Notably, Cadell was shortlisted for the position of Cultural Vice-Captain. Under the guidance of his Head of House Stan Kosiek, Cadell will continue to be supported to further develop his leadership capabilities, obviously demonstrating these qualities to date.

In 2021 he was involved in a range of sporting and cultural activities such as rugby union, volleyball, basketball, Gym, E-Sports and NAIDOC week and Harmony Day activities.

Keli, a Year 10 student, continues to work with the support of his teachers and Head of House Brett Gillett. Overall achievements for Keli in 2021 included: making the football team and training with the First XV rugby union team. Keli was also involved in football, recreational camp, NAIDOC week, Harmony Day and Acknowledgement to Country at the Years 5-11 Prizegiving Awards Night.

In 2021 Malakai, a Year 10 student, continued to complete several units of the Certificate II Outdoor Recreation course. In 2021, Malakai was involved in gym training, NAIDOC Week, Harmony Day and the Recreational Camp.

Throughout 2021, Kaden, a Year 10 student was involved in a variety of school activities including basketball, gym, NAIDOC Week and Harmony Day. Kaden is to be congratulated on his effort and progress to date.

In 2021, Landon, a Year 9 student, was the recipient of the Top of Subject Award for English as a Second Language at the Years 5-11 Prizegiving evening. Landon is to be commended on his academic progress and effort throughout 2021. Culturally and on the sporting field, Landon was involved in rugby union, gym, Year 9 camp and NAIDOC and Harmony Day activities.

Year 9 student Braith showed enthusiasm and maturity throughout the year, participating in boarding activities and keeping busy with a range of co-curricular activities.

Year 7 student Leroy participated in activities including volleyball, NAIDOC activities and Year 7 camp. He became more comfortable throughout 2021 and demonstrated increasing effort in his studies.

As the new Head of Marist College Ashgrove, I take this opportunity to thank AIEF for the generous contribution towards these Indigenous boys’ education. I have witnessed many great opportunities and successes for our Indigenous boys. I believe these boys are progressing well towards making a most positive contribution to their communities post their education at Marist College Ashgrove.
