Mentone Girls’ Secondary College

Mentone Girls’ Secondary College is a place where girls develop the courage to pursue their passions. Whether this is in the area of Science, the Arts or Technology, our students are given the opportunity to explore, invent and create in a safe, challenging and respectful environment.
Every girl in our school has the opportunity to excel in their studies, immerse themselves in a wide range of co-curricular activities or take on one of our many leadership roles. Our students are not afraid to colour outside of the lines, to break new ground and to explore alternative ways of solving problems.
Our music program is second to none with two band forms operating at Year 7 and 8. A broad range of instrumental music classes, ensembles and bands can be heard playing throughout the day in our dedicated Performing Arts Centre.
Beginning in 2019, Mentone Girls’ Secondary College will offer an Enhancement Program for girls who seek a greater academic challenge. The Enhancement Program will run from Years 7 to 9 and will provide students with the opportunity to learn through higher-order thinking, inquiry and rich tasks as part of an enhanced curriculum in English, Mathematics, Humanities and Science. Students will have access to a number of co-curricular activities such as the Tournament of Minds, Writers’ Festival, History Challenge and others. Rather than accelerating or compacting curriculum, students in the Enhancement Program will work on more complex tasks and will learn topics to a greater depth and breadth. In later years we offer students access to VCE studies in Year 10.
As a school with a rich history of educating fine young women to take their place in a globalised world, our dedicated teachers are always seeking to innovate the curriculum and remain at the forefront of educational theory and practice.
We are committed to providing an environment that nurtures the mind, body and spirit. Recent facilities work has seen an upgrade to our library and grounds and this will continue over the years to come. There will be an increased emphasis on developing a sense of place so that students feel a sense of belonging and pride in their school.
Mentone Girls’ Secondary College welcomes students from all over Melbourne. Become part of our great tradition so that you can make your mark in this globalised world.
