An event we always look forward to is the annual Mordialloc College Academic Challenge for our feeder primary schools’ Grade 5 students. This was held on Friday 27 October in the Year 7 LC and run by our Middle School captains. This year we had eight of our feeder primary schools competing, in front of an audience of 200 students and staff from Year 7. It not only offers a unique taste of secondary school life, whilst making learning fun and relevant; it also provides valuable leadership and event management skills for our Year 9 Middle School leaders.
Congratulations to Chelsea PS who were the winners this year, closely followed by Aspendale PS who were second and Seaford PS third. I will be attending a whole school assembly at Chelsea PS in the next few weeks to present the trophy. Thanks to Director of Middle School, Daniel Williams, and our Middle School captains Bianca Davidson, Spencer Halse, Mieke Berg, Celina Lum and Matthew Wade for organising the event.
