Marcellin College

Marcellin College is a Catholic school which was founded by the Marist Brothers to meet the educational needs of boys in the Bulleen area of Melbourne. It was established at Camberwell in 1950 with one hundred and seventeen students, expanded to Bulleen in 1963 and today provides education for approximately one thousand four hundred students.

Marcellin College provides generous support to the Marcellin Old Collegians Football Club with the continuous use of its facilities. This support maintains a strong connection between past students of the school and the current college community.

A strong pathway has continued for many, many years with a large number of students that conclude their studies at the College finding the benefits of transitioning to playing football for the Club. Playing football for the Club helps keep that connection with the school community and also contributes to friendships that expand over a large number of years.

To enrol your son at Marcellin College please contact the College Registrar via:

A Prospectus, Curriculum Handbook, and enrolment information pack will be sent to you as soon as possible.

College Tours:

The College will be conducting tours of the school grounds and facilities throughout the year. The tours take prospective students and their parents on a walking tour through College buildings and provide an opportunity to witness students participating in a range of classes and activities.

Bendigo Bank

After the closure of the Commonwealth Bank in East Ivanhoe in 1997, the lack of banking services in the area had impacted on so many business and community members alike. The inconvenience to the local community was enormous.

Following plenty of hard work by members in the community, Bendigo Bank East Ivanhoe opened its doors on 12 May, 2001 following the support of 230 shareholders who raised $478,000 in funds, as required by the Bendigo Bank to begin trading as a banking business. The branch has continued to flourish in it’s prime location on Lower Heidelberg Road ever since it’s opening.

As part of an expansion strategy, the Board reviewed opportunities to grow the organisation by opening another branch. When NAB Heidelberg closed its doors in May 2008, Bendigo Bank saw this as an opportunity for the Board to expand on this opportunity on having a presence in Burgundy Street. The Heidelberg Steering Committee was formed and over a twelve month period raised $850,000 in funding to establish the Heidelberg Branch. The Heidelberg branch opened its doors in September 2009.

The two branches continue to grow and support the local community with annual sponsorship and grants programs, resulting in almost $3,000,000 in community contributions to date and we are thrilled to have them on board as a sponsor and partner for many years to come.

As part of our sponsorship with Bendigo Bank, we receive a base sponsorship with the opportunity to earn further income by referring members of the Marcellin Community to the wonderful team at both branches.

For any banking inquiries whether it be everyday, credit cards, home loans, etc. the team are there to assist. Please click here in order to submit and receive a call from one of the very reliable and expert team members.

Westar Truck Centre

Westar Truck Centre is part of the Patterson Cheney group of automotive companies.

Patterson Cheney’s ties to Isuzu dates back to the late 1970s when Isuzu was first introduced to Australia through the General Motors TruckPower brand – comprising Chevrolet, Bedford and Isuzu trucks.

During that 50 odd years history in the Australian truck industry we have been part of the rise and rise of Isuzu culminating in Isuzu gaining overall truck market leadership and maintaining that mantle for every year for some 25 years since. Today Isuzu trucks account for over 25% of all trucks sold in Australia.

Our 50 odd years’ experience in truck sales and service and parts support and our view of the future has been demonstrated in the Westar Truck Centre in Derrimut. This is a 9 acre complex purely dedicated to sales, service and parts support to trucks.

Trucks are a serious business and a serious investment. And no one is as serious about trucks as Westar Truck Centre.

Mario’s Coffee House

Mario’s Coffee – “Real Coffee, Real People”

Established in 1981, Mario Bendoricchio’s vision was to cultivate the tastes and passions of Europe via a coffee shop. Creating his own special blend of coffee (which still has not changed to this day), Mario’s set the foundation for what is now widely known as a coffee institution. Originally combining fresh pasta, nuts, exclusive cakes and chocolates with the coffee, “Mario’s” over time became tailored to the specialities of coffee and fine imported confectionary.

In February 1993, Mario retired and his son, Anthony a former President of the Marcellin Old Collegians Football Club, took over.

In different stages, Anthony created an extension of his father’s ideas by creating more seating and establishing a unique ambience and place to meet. Like father like son, Anthony developed his ideas by incorporating what he felt the customers craved. Before long, people of all ages, realms and positions in society came to meet in one informal surrounding, each character creating a uniqueness and identity.
