Students transition into and through Methodist Ladies' College at key entry levels in Prep, Years 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11, or at other year levels where appropriate.
At every point along the MLC learning journey, support is provided to students to ensure their transitions are as smooth as possible. Planning and preparation sessions are held for students in transition from one year level to the next and specific preparation sessions are held for either MLC Marshmead or Melbourne Term in Year 9.
All new students attend orientation sessions and a meeting with their Head of School prior to commencing at the College.
Students commencing in the Boarding House have their own induction and orientation program, conducted by both boarding staff and current boarding students.
Year 7 students have a number of Year 11 ‘Big Sisters’ and ‘Outdoor Leaders’ assigned to their Home Group who build relationships and support the Year 7 wellbeing program. Similarly, all Prep students are linked to a Year 4 ‘buddy’. New students in other year levels are also linked to a supportive MLC peer through age-appropriate mentor or buddy programs.
