On Thursday, I attended the Premier’s VCE Awards which recognised the efforts and achievements of 300 amazing young Victorians. It was a proud day for our recipients and their families.

Year 11 / 12 Mathematics Association of Victoria (MAV) Maths Game Day
Our Year 11/12 MHS Team 1 placed first in the MAV Statewide VCE Maths Games Day competition held on Wednesday 26 July at RMIT University.
MHS Team 2 came in fourth place by just 10 points, with Caulfield Grammar Wheeler’s Hill in second place and Wesley College in third.
The students were hopeful to hold off rival schools and obtain a trifecta, which they successfully managed to do! We have now been awarded the trophy 3 years in a row.
The students in the winning team were each awarded certificates and gift vouchers, and the school has been given the trophy to keep in its care until next year’s event. Congratulations to the team members and thank you to Ms Rusden for overseeing the teams.

Astronomy Club – Star Gazing Night
Congratulations to the Astronomy Club for organizing a very successful star gazing event. A cold Melbourne Winter night did not deter the group from braving the elements to view the constellations in the southern sky. Thank you to Mr Cree-Smith and the club leaders for overseeing the event and liaising with the planetarium to procure the telescopes for the event.
Congratulations to all who participated in the combined MHS / Mac Rob Winter Concert. It was an amazing night and a wonderful way to showcase the musical talent in the two schools. Thank you to all the parents and staff involved. We value your support and encouragement. Music and singing are quintessential elements of our curriculum, and they ensure our students have a well-rounded education.
