From before school training and inter-house round robins, to inter-school, state and national-level competitions, MLC’s sport program offers something for every student.
Regardless of experience or skill, students have the opportunity to participate and challenge themselves to achieve their personal best.
In support of a balanced education, MLC provides opportunities across a broad range of sports so that all students can engage in physical activity that appeals to them and suits their individual attributes.
All MLC students are allocated to a House, which provides an important connection for students in different year levels. Students have the opportunity to participate in a range of House sports at lunchtimes. Activities are open to students in Years 7 – 12 and provide an excellent opportunity for students to make new friends both within their year level and across the College. Annual inter-house carnivals are held throughout the year in swimming, diving, athletics, gymnastics, cheerleading and cross-country.
