I have changed so much for the better. With so many choices in electives and VCE subjects, I feel like I have more than enough options and lots to think about. Everybody is so encouraging and kind. I am part of the rowing team, which was one of the best decisions of my life. I have made so many new friends, fell in love with a whole new sport, and been given a boost of confidence I didn’t know I had. I can’t speak for the behaviour of other girls, but my experience has been only positive. I can assure you, that no girls school will be perfect in the way students behave.

While there were many opportunities to lead and achieve at MGC (participating in leadership roles and sports teams throughout middle school and senior school), I was disappointed by the quality of staff teaching VCE and the way MGC handled the countless times that I and many others in my cohort were bullied emotionally and socially. My mum approached staff about this and her claims were not taken seriously. I also had an interest in joining the rowing team but at the time was criticised and ostracised by fellow students in my cohort for trying out. I didn't join in the end. The teaching staff in year 12 were under the pump In my year, one teacher took on the role of year 12 coordinator, 3/4 maths methods and 3/4 chemistry. Completely overloaded and it showed in his quality of teaching. Their classes didn't make sense and when I asked for clarification or flexibility in my learning I was met with hostility and threatened with suspension. I was a model student throughout my schooling (not a single detention), so this type of consequence was completely out of line. Having spoken with teachers after graduation, it still remains true that teachers are asked to take on too much without appropriate and timely consideration of their well being. To compensate for poor VCE support, I attended another 2 hours per subject of tutoring outside of school. As a previous comment suggested, if you want to do well at MGC you have to work for it - but don't expect support if you're struggling. Lastly, I agree with a previous comment that the school is very much focused on image and rules rather than student and staff development and progression. If I had children I would not enrol them at this school.

My daughter's education at MGC continues to be let down by poor staff, poor management and poor decisions. Counselling promised to Year 8s to inform their Yr 9 electives choices was promised, but never given (these choices can have long-term repercussions at MGC); 14 yr olds were shown an 'M' rated film at the beginning of the year which featured prostitution, abuse, depression and suicide; a 'Smiling Minds' in-class wellbeing program was heavily promoted but never delivered to students; dates for upcoming Maths tests are not posted on the digital noticeboard, alongside other due dates, as a matter of policy; a Yr 9 Science text was never assigned (the Principal belatedly suggested a 'non-compulsory' text for further reading); prospective VCE students sat through a troubling account of depression and anorexia by a former graduate at the information night. MGC fails its students in educational care.
