Mullauna College is a year 7 – 12, co-educational, state secondary school set in the heart of Mitcham in Melbourne’s leafy eastern suburbs. Mullauna is a Koori word meaning together. Our motto, ‘Success Through Learning Together’, reflects our belief that excellence is best achieved when students, teachers and parents work in partnership to ensure the best possible outcomes and learning experiences for the students in our community.
The college values of ‘Curiosity, Courage and Community’ are embedded in every aspect of our daily school life. Our vision for our students is that they have a strong sense of connection to our school community, that they value learning and creativity, that they are curious and have the courage to persistently strive to achieve their personal best. The classroom focus creates a learning environment that values excellence and celebrates students’ achievements. We aim to have our students graduate with the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary to become independent learners who are capable of meeting the challenges of adult life in our global community.
Mullauna is an active learning community, providing students with a challenging, innovative curriculum designed to meet the needs of individual students. Our EXCEL High Achievers Program, English as an additional language courses, year 7 and 8 Challenge program and year 9 SkillZ Program are examples of targeting the learning experience to best meet the individual needs of our students. The college VET programs offer a breadth of pathways for seniors and our year 10 students are encouraged to undertake VCE subjects. Mullauna also delivers a well-regarded and successful International Student Program (CRICOS number 00861K).
Our students excel academically. In 2018 our year 12 students achieved excellent results with a VCE subject median score of 30 and 5.2% of Study Scores over 40. Over 7% of the cohort achieved an ATAR over 90, 19% of ATARs were above 80 and 40% of students achieved ATARs over 70. Each year, the majority of our year 12 graduates go on to tertiary studies. In 2018, 89% of the year 12 students received offers for university degrees and 11% for TAFE diplomas and certificate courses.
Mullauna’s students also have the opportunity to participate in a diverse range of co-curricular activities, including student leadership, camps, debating and sports. They excel in both the visual and performing arts. For the last five years in succession, our students’ Studio Arts work was selected for exhibition in the VCE Season of Excellence at the National Gallery of Victoria, and our Stage Band has been very successful at the Victorian Schools’ Music Festival.
For students coming into Mullauna at year 7, our extensive transition program and close links with local primary schools ensures a continuity of positive learning experiences and a smooth transition to secondary education.
Our recent building program has provided our community with a number of modern, well-equipped, purposeful learning spaces to enhance the stimulating, innovative curriculum. Improvements include a new Junior Learning Centre; a new Art, Design and Technology Centre; the well-equipped MakerSpace and a new Master Chef-style kitchen. The new passive and active recreational facilities for junior students are currently under construction and this will further enhance the pleasant, spacious ambience of the college campus which students all enjoy.
Mullauna is a quality government school where students can proudly achieve their personal best. We invite you to come on a tour of our college to meet our students and staff, and we look forward to welcoming your family into our learning community.
