Mullauna College

WELCOME to Mullauna College
Mullauna College in Mitcham is a year 7 – 12, co-educational, state secondary school. 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.
Our vision for our students is that they value learning and creativity, and constantly strive to achieve their personal best. Every Mullauna student is an ambassador of our college. We aspire 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 a global community. We believe that our school values of Curiosity, Courage and Community are aspirational and speak of self-improvement. To be authentic our values need to be evident in all aspects of life at our school; in our attitude to learning, in decision making, in our relationships with each other.
Be creative; think, ask and explore.
Look for new interests and different perspectives.
Commit; persevere and strive to achieve your personal best.
Create opportunities from uncertainty and complexity.
Be courteous, kind and compassionate.
Be accountable; contribute to a safe and sustainable environment.
Mullauna is an active and academic learning community, providing students with a challenging 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@Mullauna program are examples of targeting the learning experience to best meet the individual needs of our students. The college access to VET programs offers a breadth of pathways for seniors and our year 10 students are actively encouraged to undertake VCE subjects. Mullauna also delivers a well-regarded and successful International Student Program, accredited under the Department of Education and Training (CRICOS number 00861K).
Our students excel academically. In 2019 our year 12 students achieved excellent results with a VCE subject median score of 29 and 5% of Study Scores over 40. The Dux achieved an ATAR of 96.85 and over 5% of the cohort achieved an ATAR above 90, 17% of ATARs were above 80 and 32% of students of ATARs were over 70. Each year, the majority of our year 12 graduates go on to university and other tertiary institutions.
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, including a well-structured peer support program and close links with local primary schools ensures a continuity of positive learning experiences and a smooth transition to secondary education.
The new building works have been completed, providing state of the art learning spaces for our current and future students, including new
junior school hard courts, a new visual arts
and technology precinct, a makerspace facility
and a junior learning centre.
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.
