We are delighted to be welcoming you into the MLC community!

Our Orientation program ensures students and families are well-equipped for a smooth transition into Prep. In the meantime, we invite you to explore the below content for a peek into the exciting journey that awaits your daughter:


Welcome to Prep Video Series

We have prepared a four-part video series to help build familiarisation with MLC Junior School. You and your daughter can watch stories read by her future teachers – including Art, Japanese and our Chaplain – and virtually see the spaces of which she will soon become familiar. These will be the faces you will come to know over 2022, and be there to guide your daughter as she embarks on the exciting journey of starting school.

We recommend you view these in full screen.
