On Friday, 12 February, MLC celebrated 139 years of inspiring the citizens the world needs in recognition of Founders' Day, 14 February.
Although COVID restrictions meant we were limited in the ways we could celebrate, we nevertheless enjoyed a morning of fun as the students made their way through the historic Krome Gates to school.
This year's student-led activity took the form of a selfie competition where students were invited to snap a picture on the school grounds to show us what they love about MLC.
We received a great number of selfies as well as beautifully written words, which were truly wonderful to read.
Some of the answers included:
“Having an education at MLC means following my dream to become a doctor.”
“Having an MLC education means I am able to learn in a supportive work environment where everyone is treated equally and all voices are valued.”
“The learning experience and the privilege to have such great teachers. Thank you for memories that will last a lifetime!”
“It means I can grow with my learning, engage with my peers and develop new skills. I am so lucky to be in an amazing school like MLC!!!”
Founders' Day is always a time of great celebration for the MLC Community, so we thank all those who kept their distance from the school grounds for the health and safety of College Students and Staff.
We look forward to next year’s milestone of 140 years of educating young women at MLC, and to spending 2021 making the most of our learning; whether that’s on site in Kew or during our Continuous Learning and Wellbeing program online.
