A Day in the Life of an MLC Girl
At MLC, we support every girl to strive to the heights in her learning. Every day at MLC is special as our girls learn, grow and explore during their classes and activities. View below what a day at our College looks like for our girls.
Every Girl, Every Day
Audrey | Pre-Primary
We visited Audrey in her Pre-Primary classroom where she had a fun-filled day of building, creating and exploring. The day began with handwriting skill development.
Next up was Visual Art where Audrey put resin on her beautiful clay poppy creation.
The class then practiced measuring and sensory exploration as they baked banana muffins together.
Audrey built sculptures in the play centre before waiting with her friends for the afternoon pick up.
Lalage | Year 1
Lalage recently showed us what a day in Year 1 looks like. The school day was full of adventure and tailored specifically to her.
She started out the day by measuring the class’s hydroponic herbs.
Next she inspected a skull and some insects during a STEM-based activity.
A digital hardware task had her completely enthralled in solving a circuit problem.
Collaborative building resulted in an epic castle during free play.
Bean bag toss games allowed the girls to work as a team in Physical Education.
A unique learning opportunity evolved out of the class showing curiosity towards a real-life building situation on campus.
Laura | Year 3
Laura shared her experience during a day in Year 3. She started the day by pulling on her specially-made apron in Visual Art to work on her wool project. Maths, Science and xylophone practice in Music followed before her Year 10 mentor arrived to work alongside her for the afternoon.
Isabella | Year 5
A day in the life of Isabella featured fast-paced dancing, hurdling through Physical Education, learning music methods, maths, english and an early morning Sinfonietta rehearsal. There wasn’t a dull moment as she immersed herself in every activity of the day.
Catherine | Year 7
We joined Year 7 student Catherine for a day as she navigated her way through myriad classes across the campus. In Physical Education, her class learnt how to use their bodies to generate power while maintaining the required technique for shot put, practising indoors with a medicine ball.
She played the Balinese gamelan alongside her classmates during Music.
In Materials Design and Technology – Textiles, she sewed elements onto her ‘bird softie’.
Her English class studied symbolism and visual analysis.
In French, the class focused on the names of colours.
Maia | Year 8
Science was Maia's favourite class of the day and the focus was geology. She made paint from minerals as part of an Earth and Space unit.
Julieta | Year 8
We joined Year 8 student Julieta for the day as she travelled from class to class, starting with Mentor-Mentee time.
She headed to Material and Technologies where she continued with the production of her ‘Boro Bag’, working on the lining and straps.
The class took on a counting-based problem-solving activity in Mathematics.
Humanities and English followed where Julieta is studying representations of women throughout the ages and the influence of social, cultural and historical context on these interpretations.
Jennilee | Year 10
Boarder Jennilee showed us what her Year 10 life looks like during a day at MLC.
Engineering was first up on the timetable and she worked with a team to design a water station for Koalas, a task based on a competition from Green Heroes. We had a quick peek at her previous project which was based on building prosthetic limbs.
In English she focused on Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
The day ended with snack time in the Boarding House where she wound down after her Science test during last period.
Anoushka | Year 12
We joined Year 12 boarder Anoushka as she traversed through her classes and activities. Her day began with assembly where, as a prefect, she lead the students in a fun interpretive dance to the College song.
Next up was Physics followed by Chemistry where she learnt about pH changes during acid-base titrations and indicator choice.
A study period and English class preceded Ancient History where she prepared for an essay about Akhenaten, a Pharaoh of Egypt.
The day wrapped up with coffee on the couch in one of the Boarding House common rooms with friends.
