As the 2017 school year ends, I sincerely want to thank and acknowledge the work of the Mooroolbark College staff, students and parents in making the year a great year for Mooroolbark College.

At the end of 2017 we will also be farewelling the following staff:

  • Marjory Snelling – Technology
  • Sandra Wood – Technology
  • David Innes – Mathematics
  • Jacquie Robinson – Mathematics
