Celebrating the Class of 2020

Monday, 21 December 2020

Methodist Ladies’ College is delighted to announce that our Class of 2020 have achieved outstanding results, in a year fraught with challenges and uncertainty.  

As an academically inclusive school, our mission is to enable every girl to achieve her personal best. Our students’ successes are testament to their hard work and to the exceptional talent and dedication of our teachers.   

“These young women all have very bright futures ahead of them. I congratulate them on their perseverance and efforts in keeping on keeping on, in a year that no one could have ever predicted. MLC girls are all very driven to succeed and that is evident in these results.”  
MLC Principal, Dr Marie Perry.  

MLC Year 12 students achieved broadly, across all areas of our holistic programme, from core academic courses, to co-curricular activities and service-learning opportunities. Such diverse experiences are the basis of a well-rounded education. In the year that was, MLC has been able to get each and every one of our 128 students through to the end of Year 12, whether they are based in Perth and attending school on campus, or overseas and learning with MLC’s teacher-directed online learning.
