Our exciting Series Five features broken records at MLC, purposeful pathways, academic excellence, artistic pursuits and Collegian passions.
Celebrating Academic Excellence
MLC Collegians Evelyn and Shannon have a chat to our 2021 Academic Prefect Maya about their recent results in the WACE exams. They both received a perfect score of 99.95, placing them as two of the top 14 students in the state. For this pair of exceptional students, life throughout school was more than just study, they spoke about the importance of spending time with friends and family and really enjoying everything that MLC had to offer.
Get to Know Our Deputy Principal ELC–Year 6
Our Junior Years' students were eager to ask our new Deputy Principal ELC–Year 6 all of life’s big questions. In this week’s podcast, you can join them as they get to know Mrs Kylie Cross. They chat about everything from Kylie’s devotion to Surf Life Saving, her pet bunny Snowball and the her vision for the MLC Junior Years.
Lucy Iffla Found her Fire
Jazz was not so much a choice for Lucy but rather a calling. When she was first awarded a music prize at MLC, she never imagined that in 2021 she would be a professional musician.
Listen to this week’s podcast to hear Year 12 student Stella chat to her vocal tutor and Collegian Lucy Iffla about their passion for Jazz.
Year 12 student Katie wanted to share her experience and advice on alternative learning pathways and our Girls on Fire the Podcast gave her the platform for this message. Listen to this week’s podcast to hear Katie and MLC teacher Nicola Rose, Coordinator of Inclusive Learning Years 7–12 and Vocational Education and Training (VET) chat about alternative pathways at MLC.
From Easter Animation to Game Design
Five years ago, MLC Chaplain Rev. Hollis Wilson asked then Year 11 student Jussea to create an animation for the Easter Chapel Service. The result was superb and, not surprisingly, Jussea has continued to pursue her talent through studying a Games Art and Design degree at university. Listen to this week’s podcast to hear Jussea chat to Hollis about her experience studying and working in a creative industry.
Since 1976, Collegian Jodi Newton (1980) has held the Year 8 50-metre Breaststroke record at MLC, but this changed when talented athlete and Year 8 MLC student Lucy came along and broke the record. Listen to this week’s podcast to hear Jodi chat about her experience as an athlete with Year 8 students Lucy and Jemima.
