When somebody asks me what school I go to and if I enjoy it, I beam a smile and reply with "I love my school"! I reply with this because I have made so many memories through MLC which I know I will cherish forever, and MLC has helped shaped me into the lady I am today.

My experience at MLC showed me that women could do and be anything, and it encouraged learning and social responsibility.

My daughter and I really enjoyed Advantage Morning. I was impressed by the Principal, the teachers and students we met, and the facilities. The classroom setup looked amazing. My daughter is really looking forward to coming next year.
Like a very well tended garden, the MLC Boarding House is a magical and peaceful place that is raising and nurturing our daughter into an independent young woman with a healthy vigour for life. MLC’s beautiful surroundings and the caring and dedicated staff collectively encourage our daughter to bloom physically, emotionally and socially. As her parents, there is nothing more comforting or special than watching this miracle unfold from afar and knowing that unequivocally, she’s in the right place.

Our daughter received an excellent score in her ATAR. This is in no small part due to her boarding experience at MLC. She was accepted into her preferred course at her first choice of university. MLC played such a huge role in our beautiful daughter’s life. She was once a quiet, shy kid in Year 8, but has now developed into a grown person with new confidence. Thank you so much for your input and care.

Working with refugees and encountering hostility, xenophobia and distrust, I was struck by how much MLC instilled a kind of take-for-granted acceptance of other cultures and races.

The girls love the new Community Bus service and prefer the bus to being driven. It is very reassuring that my daughter (and all of the girls) have felt so comfortable in what was her first experience of getting to school independently. Parents love the bus – it has given me multiple extra hours in my week, which is something all of the parents are saying.

MLC was a place where I discovered my leadership potential and self-confidence and these have encouraged me to step up when it comes to taking initiative. I learnt at MLC that if you work and study hard, you will be rewarded with good results.

We had a fabulous afternoon on Saturday at a lecture on your grounds, from a visiting speaker from Basle, on her Valley of the Kings dig. I would just like to let you know that your girls were so well spoken, helpful and well presented. They are a credit to your establishment. Well done.

The hardest thing for girls to learn is how to love themselves, but luckily we had perfect examples of strong female role models. I think it comes down to the love and willingness to go that extra mile, those hundreds of extra miles, and I want to thank all my teachers for that.

There was always something to do, something new to learn, and new ways to challenge yourself. It was the pride in self that has given me the strength to achieve the things I have.
