Awards Evening 2023

Tuesday, December 12, 2023

The Antonine College Awards evening on Friday 1 December presented a fantastic opportunity to acknowledge student successes and achievements at Antonine College in 2023.

The Awards Evening was held for the first time in the Mother Isabelle Khoury Stadium at St Joseph Campus. During the Awards Evening the Guest Speaker, Ms Marianna Chedid, whose background is outlined below:

Born and raised in Lebanon, Mariana migrated to Sydney Australia at the age of 18. In 2007, she moved to Melbourne and quickly fell in love with the culinary culture that the city had to offer. At the age of 27, inspired by the story of ‘Julia Child’, Mariana decided to pursue her dream of becoming a chef. She travelled to France to follow the footsteps of her idol.

By 2014, Mariana had completed a comprehensive training program in 'Cuisine' and 'Pâtisserie' and graduated with a ’Grand Diplôme’ from ‘Le Cordon Bleu’ in Paris.

Mariana then pursued another learning journey with ‘Brasserie Thoumieux’, under the mentorship of Chef ‘Jean-Francois Piège’. Mariana's culinary career started in Paris at the Michelin-starred restaurant ‘La Tour D'argent’, under the supervision of Chef ‘Yohan Lastre’.

Upon returning to Melbourne, she embarked on an exploration and experimentation journey using the finest local produce, ultimately enabling her to forge her own path within the culinary scene, finally founding ‘Brûlée’ in 2020.

Mariana provided great inspiration for our assembled students, parents and staff with particular emphasis on following our dreams to succeed in life.
