Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to the Melbourne Girls’ College website!

karen_money_2015Melbourne Girls’ College (MGC) was established in 1994 on the banks of the Yarra River in Richmond, Victoria and is a leader in innovative girls’ education.
The college has a future thinking ethos which sees the recognition of Positive Psychology, Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.) and Wellbeing embedded in the learning and teaching.
This complex work is facilitated through a school-wide coaching model and the Curiosity and Powerful Learning Framework.

Our students study inquiry and trans-disciplinary subjects in Years 7-9 followed by a large number of Year 10, VCE and VET units in the senior years.

The key values of our college are encapsulated in the vision of young women who will “lead and achieve”. This values both quiet and overt leadership, success and personal achievement. Our students are taught and nurtured by excellent staff, parent support, peers and mentors.

The achievements of MGC are certainly in academic results but a broader definition of success ensures personal, social, emotional, sporting and artistic engagement are central to being a student of the College.
The Sustainability Collective of MGC is world renowned and the school community takes pride in teaching ethical understandings to ensure our young women gain a sense of stewardship for the future, the environment and for being a positive influence on others.
In recent years MGC has developed new facilities including a languages wing, gymnasium, Year 7 and performing arts centres, science wing, hospitality, art and technology teaching spaces.
The Gillard Centre houses a flexible learning and meeting space and provides river access for our exemplary rowing program.

Our students are global citizens conscious of the unique lessons attending a school educating young women from diverse backgrounds and over sixty nationalities can bring.
Melbourne Girls’ College, in collaboration with key tertiary and community partners in learning, is an inquiring, innovative community of excellence.

I look forward to meeting you at our annual Open Day.

Karen Money
Principal, Melbourne Girls’ College
