Welcome back!

Hopefully, all of our students had a safe and relaxing summer break, preparing themselves for their final year or two years of school and ensuring they got their holiday homework finished!
The Senior School started with a bang in week one with both Year 12 Summit Camp and Year 11 Flying Start.


Year 12 Summit Camp

The Year 12s had an excellent time at The Summit in Trafalgar East, working in small groups to complete activities and continue developing their teamwork skills. There was also a significant focus on building resilience and not limiting oneself. The best bit (according to most) was the Monster Course – a 1.5km run through multiple obstacles, including mud! The fact that over 200 students managed to complete the course, despite the physical challenges and their tiredness, showed the determination of our students. A big thank you to Mr James Johnston, who organised The Summit Camp, to the Year 12 Coordinators, Mr Andrew Morton and Mr Chris Bamford, and to all staff who attended.


Year 11 Flying Start

The Year 11s took part in the Flying Start program both at school and at Deakin University Burwood. Olympian and Commonwealth Games Gold Medalist Ms Jemima Montag gave an engaging presentation on overcoming challenges, setting goals and working hard.    Students also took part in their first Elevate Education session of the year, completing planning and goal setting, as well as mapping out motivation for senior school success.

On Friday, students made their own way to Deakin University for an information session and tours with current students, including an MWSC alumnus. Many thanks to the Year 11 Coordinators, Ms Sunita Sewani and Mr Tristan Dunkley, for their organisation and support, along with thanks to all staff who facilitated parts of the program.



This week, VCE students have received their lockers and diaries, settled into their classes and (hopefully!) submitted their holiday homework. Catch-up sessions for overdue holiday homework will be run on Monday, 12th Feb, and will be visible on student Compass schedules.

Keep an eye out for an email with details about the current students’ VCE Information Evening on the 20th of February.
