Charting the progress of each student is more than a means of monitoring academic development; it’s our way of ensuring that each student’s personality comes to the fore. To achieve this, we rely on our dedicated House system, where each student is allocated a House for the duration of time at the College.
Four Houses were established in 1933 and the fifth, Nevile, established in 1959. All are named after significant benefactors, former Chairs of the MLC Council and former Principals of the College. Each student is allocated to a House at the beginning of her journey at MLC. Students with relatives who have previously attended the College are allocated to the same House.
The Methodist Ladies' College House system fosters strong and productive relationships with both peers and students at all levels of the College. Students are offered a wide variety of activities geared to inspire participation, leadership, teamwork and the setting of challenges and goals. House events include music, drama, athletics, swimming, cross-country, sporting round robins, debating and more.
Students have a network of staff and older students within their House for the duration of time at the College, from whom they can seek advice and support. House staff get to know students and their families closely, follow the development of individual students within their House and through their MLC journey.
I love all the different House activities that we get to do. House Aths has become one of my favourite days of the year. Robyn, Year 10 student
