We are now in our ninth year as a College and are very proud of the way we have quickly earned a fine reputation in our Bendigo community.
Whilst young, we also belong to the 50 schools nationally that form the family of Marist Schools in Australia. This rich heritage of the Marist story is over 200 years old and has certainly helped our students and families feel a sense of being Marist.
This Marist story began in rural France just after the French Revolution when Marcellin Champagnat realised that a good education and a strong faith were the keys to enable young people to advance in, and contribute to society.
Amongst his many wise comments was one which has become the golden rule for Marist Educators:
To educate a person well you must love them and love them all equally.
This is a lived reality at Marist College Bendigo where we commit to ensuring your child is known and loved.
