Melbourne Girls’ College is hosting a 25th Anniversary Cocktail Party on Wednesday 4th September. This will be a great opportunity past students, school councillors, parents’ association members and community members along with former and current staff to mingle and reminisce about all the things that have gone into making our school the shinning beacon of girls’ education that is has become.
