Senior Years

We support each of our Senior Year students to achieve their personal best, providing them with every possible opportunity to succeed in what it is that drives them. Our teachers prepare our students to be the very best version of themselves. We understand a girl’s biggest challenge can become her strength and support each girl to confidently try something new, experiment and fail without fear.

Other than an exceptional academic education led by world-class teaching staff and a wide variety of subjects and courses, we offer a broader range than other schools. Our students learn to value themselves and others. Our aim is to instil confidence and resilience in each student so they leave us as caring and compassionate individuals.

We use a goal-oriented approach, knowing each student has a different objective. An Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) is one pathway in which to succeed, however it is not the only tool at our students’ disposal. We support each of our girls in selecting the pathway that best suits them in order to reach their goal, which is not necessarily to attain a certain ATAR score.

Our holistic experience also encompasses the Walton Leadership Institute—a specific curriculum that enhances leadership development—and our unique Wellbeing Curriculum, which is embedded in all aspects of learning at the College. The Wellbeing Curriculum utilises positive psychology to cultivate a buoyant student culture and build each girl’s confidence and self-esteem.

These years prepare our girls to leave MLC with holistic learning experiences that help them recognise their value and worth. Girls leave our College ready to apply that knowledge to their purpose in life, vocation and future endeavours.

Welcome to Years 7-12

Year 7

Some of our girls have been through our Junior Years journey while others are starting out on their adventure at MLC.

As the girls transition from a totally compulsory curriculum to a place where they will have choice, we give them the opportunity to experience all of the elective subjects throughout the year.

To get them off to a running start, our Year 7 girls take part in an action-packed and fun orientation program in the first week of the academic year. It's a chance for our girls to form new friendships as they take part in surfing, kayaking, swimming and open-air cooking on camp stoves. In Term 3, they all go on the eagerly anticipated Outdoor and Environmental Education Program.

All of our girls study one of the four languages we offer – French, German, Mandarin or Japanese. To make informed decisions about their futures, our girls also experience all of the vibrant co-curricular opportunities on offer.

Year 8

Year 8 is a time of choice and consolidation for our girls. They choose a language plus four electives to study throughout the year.

While the girls are undertaking their rigorous academic studies, we encourage them to develop the skills to be more responsible for their learning, to become critical thinkers and to be active problem solvers.

In Term 2, all of our girls experience lessons beyond the classroom at the Year 8 Outdoor and Environmental Education Program. The girls are presented with challenges that they would not normally encounter, such as pitching a tent and living in close quarters with someone else in the great outdoors. The camp teaches our girls patience, understanding, co-operation, and resilience, all of which are skills for life. It's also a fabulous opportunity to demonstrate leadership, get to know each other and the staff, as well as themselves.

Year 9

Our Year 9 girls are asked to step up and take on more responsibility. Some become House leaders, while others step up to serve the community. Each student chooses three electives to study in Year 9 alongside their academic timetable.

To ready them for Years 10-12, the Year 9 girls are expected to take responsibility and be accountable for their learning outcomes. Their mentor and our highly qualified, specialist educators are on hand to guide them throughout their journey and to help them hone their study skills.

The two major highlights for the year are the Social and the Outdoor and Environmental Education Program. We host the Social at the College and invite Year 9 boys from the surrounding schools. The camp is an exciting adventure, building on the skills learnt at the previous years' camps. Our girls demonstrate their independence and their leadership abilities in a fun and challenging environment. It's also a great time to reconnect with each other and build new friendships.

Year 10

An exciting adventure lies ahead as our girls consolidate their understanding of their core subjects and begin preparations for WACE and life beyond MLC.

While maintaining an academic focus, we explore careers and enterprise, and expose our girls to new life experiences.

All of our Year 10 girls venture into the outside world during their week of work experience. The year ends on a high note with our Week of Amazement, which pushes their boundaries as they explore life beyond home, including working on a farm, scuba diving training, gaining a skippers' ticket or working for a charity Christmas appeal.

It's also the year in which parents go into partnership with girls and the College to identify their daughter's strengths, helping her make informed choices for her future.

Year 11

This is the year for striving ahead academically, as the girls enter their first year of preparation for WACE. To aim for success the girls are given extra support in our Academic Centre; they receive given expert instruction on study technique and are given feedback on their work to provide solid foundations for academic success.

In Semester 2, our girls are encouraged to stand for the top student leadership roles. They all participate in an exciting election process that mirrors a General Election and instils a sense of civil responsibility.

In anticipation of their final year with us, our girls design their Leavers' jacket, which will be worn on campus during Year 12.

Year 12

Our graduate year is very special for all of our girls. Ahead of them they have many pathways to fulfil their dreams and we recognise that it is our job to ensure they have the skills to face their WACE or VET exams at the end of the year.

While our wonderful young women are focussed on consolidating their learning to achieve this, they also take on the role of leaders. Their position and achievements in the College are reflected in their dress. All Year 12 students wear a blazer that is trimmed with our distinguishing leavers' braiding. They also have a Year 12 tie and are able to wear their special Leavers' jacket.

Our Leavers also take part in an array of 'rite of passage' events including the Year 12 Ball, crazy stocking day, the ocean swim and their final day fun fair.

At the end of the year we say our fond farewells to our graduates and recognise their achievements and contribution to the College at their Valedictory Service and Dinner, and final Awards Assembly. We know that they will all strive to the heights.

Per Ardua Ad Alta.
