Meet Our College Council

The MLC Council is the governing body of the College, vested by the Uniting Church Synod. The Council is responsible for providing a broad and balanced high quality education in an environment consistent with the values and ethos of the Church. Council Members are appointed based on their expertise, qualifications and experience to enhance business and affairs, as well as ensure compliance. Our Principal, Ms Rebecca Clarke, is delegated responsibility to lead MLC. She works closely with Council to deliver the intent of school's Vision, Mission, Values and Strategic Plan.
