Read about our exciting projects below.
The Gertrude Walton Building
Named for MLC’s third Principal who donated £500 for its construction, this beautiful building overlooks the Swan River and holds a special place in the hearts of Collegians and students alike. Originally a library and currently used as a dance and drama studio, the building was opened by Sir Charles Gairdner on 7 November 1957 for MLC’ s 50th Jubilee year and will celebrates its 60th anniversary next year.
The scope of this project is extensive and will ensure greater use as a teaching space for Years 7-12 students and will enable it to be used as venue for special events. It will be renamed the Gertrude Walton Centre.
Langsford House kitchen classroom
The kitchen classroom areas in Langsford House are some of the most highly used classrooms in the College by Years 7-12 students. The proposal is to transform what is currently a classroom space to create an additional kitchen learning area. This would enable an expansion of the Food Science and Technology curriculum and enable us to offer a VET option for our senior girls who are currently limited to selecting it only as a WACE subject.
The MLC Dining Room and Hadley Green
Air conditioning is required to enable this vast dining space to be more comfortable for the MLC Boarders at meal times and the wider community when used for events and functions. Incorporated into this project would be the outdoor space between the MLC Café and Hadley Hall. A concept has been drawn up to place decking and/or astro turf in this high traffic area for aesthetic and practical purposes. This multipurpose space would include shaded seating for students at break times and enable breakout learning spaces for creative theatre arts and music among other curriculum areas.
The Pool Redevelopment
An expanded version of last years’ pool heating project. The 2016 pool project includes heating, retiling, and upgrading the filtration system. This project will future proof the pool for a number of years. The total scope of this project is $300,000. The school will fund 50 per cent of the project cost and we have a generous pledge from a 2015 Circle of Success family of $50,000. 2016 Circle of Success members would provide the remaining capital.
