Mentone Girls’ Secondary College students, through courage and work, develop compassion, independence and tolerance in a dynamic learning environment, enabling them to make a fulfilling contribution in local and global communities. Our college offers a balanced and broad range of VCE studies and VET programs to cater to the varied needs of our senior students. Year 10 students are encouraged to accelerate by undertaking a VCE Unit 1 & 2 study, or a VET program, as appropriate. Our Year 7 – 10 curriculum is designed to provide students with a thorough grounding in the core subjects as well as the chance to explore a wide range of learning experiences prior to VCE. The Reflective Learning Centre program, an important element in our curriculum structure, gives Year 9 students a range of authentic learning experiences, including inquiry-based projects. The Learn to Learn program is further strengthening the learning skills and attributes of Junior and Middle School students. The College values development of the whole person and offers an outstanding co-curricular program. Students achieve excellence in many sporting fields, in the performing and visual arts, in public speaking and debating and in our student leadership development programs. The College is developing global links through its Engage with Asia program and its sister school relationships with schools in Japan and France.
