Parent Contributions

As per the Department of Education Parent Payment Policy and the Melbourne Girls’ College Parent Payment Policy, Government Schools provide students with free instruction to fulfil the standard Victorian curriculum.

The ongoing generous financial contributions and skills from MGC families is central to the strength of Melbourne Girls’ College and our ability to offer exceptional opportunities for our students.

The support of our community allows us to offer a wider selection of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities, on site IT technicians, improved contemporary learning areas such as our all-inclusive library, and the upgrades of the facilities including the recent construction of the Performing Arts Centre.

The College is grateful for the widespread support it receives from families through contributions, fundraising and volunteering time and skills.
