Our House System
All of our girls become members of one of our six Houses when they join us. Introduced in 1927, our House system is a significant part of College life and enables our girls to develop their sense of belonging.
Students are often placed in their families' Houses, following in the steps of their aunts, sisters, mothers or grandmothers who also attended the College.
Throughout the year, many sports, arts and academic House activities are organised where older and younger years come together to participate and celebrate House rivalry in a fun and collegial manner.
Some of these opportunities include:
- Interhouse Swimming Carnival
- Interhouse Cross Country
- House Singing, Drama and Mime Festival
- House Acts
- House Reading Challenge
- Interhouse Athletics Carnival
- Heather Lamont Festival; a celebration of the arts at MLC
Our girls take on leadership responsibilities for their Houses. Representatives from a variety of year groups are elected to lead, and a Prefect is appointed to be at the helm of each House. Working with her is the House Executive and all of the House representatives.
At the end of the year, the Champion Cup is presented to the House that accumulated the most points throughout the year.
Our six Houses are:
