It’s Term 2 and we’re back at school eager to teach and learn!
Before we highlight the hugely successful Open Night held on the 22nd April, a few words on our achievements in The Education Perfect World Championships in which we competed against 1,894 schools. It is worth mentioning we came 18th out of 308 Victorian Schools and, even more impressively, 13th out of 1082 in German, putting us into the top 2% globally!

All of these students will receive a special certificate to be awarded in at a future school assembly. These results show how engaged our learners are, how much fun it can be to learn for pleasure and how vibrant our languages are at Mooroolbark College.
Recently, Mooroolbark College held its Open Night. Due to COVID restrictions we could not do our usual waffle and stir-fry extravaganza. Instead, we were very grateful to our student volunteers (in German: Nikkisha Dempster (Year 7) and Alexis Haslett (Year 8) and in Chinese: Keiffer Just, Keira Leonard, Niamh Delaney, Tegan McDonald) who assisted us the whole evening in running our activities. Visitors received their passport stamps but were also encouraged to participate in one of our activities, including matching up words and interactive word searches. These were hugely popular, to the point that parents and staff from other faculties tried their luck and were greatly surprised with their level of ability.
We are looking forward to the rest of the term and ready to assist all our learners as they progress towards completing their Semester One assessments.
