On Thursday 19 October we held our annual Mordialloc College “It’s Academic Challenge” for our main feeder primary schools’ grade 5 students. The event was organised by our Middle School captains, with Director of Middle School Mr Brendan McFarland. This year we had six of our feeder primary schools competing in this challenge, in front of an audience of 250 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 Aspendale PS who were the winners this year. Closely followed by Mordialloc Beach PS who were second and Edithvale PS were third. I will be attending a whole school assembly at Aspendale PS this Friday to present the trophy. All place getters received gold, silver, or bronze medals on the day.
Thanks to Director of Middle School, Brendan McFarland who worked with our Middle School captains (Reny Zhang, Ethan Simmons, Alex Wragg, Caleb Mulcahy and Bonnie Blinco) to organise and run the event.
