Early in Term 3 we will be hosting 15 students from Kyoto, Japan, and we are seeking families to host a student. Hosting an international student is a wonderful way of getting to know, understand and appreciate each other’s cultures, customs and traditions and forging lifelong friendships with your student and her family. If you would like to engage in this experience please contact the school on 8272 8233 to register your interest by Friday 31 May.
Congratulations to Michaela Collins and Sahithya Paramasivam for their successful entries in the National History Challenge. Michaela is the State winner in the History of Sport category and Sahithya is the State winner in the Year 9 category.
The Department for Education has short-listed Mitcham Girls High School as a potential pilot school to ‘Lead the Way’ and offer Year 7 in a high school setting from 2020.
We have been shortlisted because of our focus in progressive approaches to quality teaching and learning, our safe and supportive environment and our extensive transition program.
Participation in the pilot is voluntary, therefore whether the pilot program goes ahead is dependent on the number of parents who register an interest for their current Year 6 children to enrol at Mitcham Girls High School in 2020. Registrations of Interest to Enrol close on 24 May 2019.
Work on the new MGHS STEM Centre has commenced. Once completed students will have access to flexible learning spaces and various technologies which will enable them to explore ideas, test various hypotheses and apply what they learn to real situations.
