With 8 weeks of the 2018 school year to go there is still a lot happening at Mooroolbark College. 

Our Year 12 students who are doing their VCE commenced their exams this week.  They have worked hard and prepared well with the support of their teachers.  We look forward to farewelling them formally at the Valedictory Dinner on Friday 23rd November at Sandown Racecourse. We congratulate and thank them for their contribution in adding to the rich tradition of Mooroolbark College.  We wish them well and look forward to hearing about their future successes and achievements.

 On Monday 12th November, the College is sending 10 students on a two-week tour of China as part of our Sister School arrangement with Wujiang Senior Middle School.  Accompanied by Mr John Nichol and Mr Paul Ryan, our students will have a wonderful experience developing an appreciation of the Chinese culture.  They will have the opportunity to experience different customs and traditions and spend time living with families from our Sister School, This is a great opportunity for our students to challenge themselves and develop new friendships.  I am eager to hear their stories upon their return. 

This week the Year 9 Duke of Edinburgh class went on a three-day challenge camp to Wilson Promontory.  Again our students demonstrated outstanding commitment to their learning, development of new skills and to challenging themselves.  Thank you to Luke McCormick who led this experience for Mooroolbark College students.
