Swimming Carnival

Our Swimming Carnival is on Tuesday 13th Feb 2018. Parents, carers and family members are welcome at our carnival.


Students are expected at school at the start of the day to have their period 1 roles marked before walking down to Kardinia Pool. They will be returning back to school for presentations and will be dismissed at 3.11pm. 


The house captains have decided to make the dress up theme ‘When I grow up’. If students intend to dress up then we would recommend wearing bathers under their costume so that they can compete and earn points for their house. They should also try to match costumes to their house colour. Body paint, streamers, coloured zinc, and balloons are not permitted by the pool staff.


We hope all students attend this wonderful sporting event even if their intentions are not to swim. Trials are conducted in the morning with the main carnival beginning around 12pm. 

Year 7 Parent & Carer Welcome Session

We hope that adjusting to life at MFG for your daughter(s), and for yourselves, is going well and the start to a new school year at a new school has been a smooth one.


On Thursday February 15th, between 4 and 5 pm we invite you to a Welcome to MFG session which will be held in your daughter's home group room. The main aims of this session are:

  • for you to meet the teachers of the class
  • for you to meet other parents and carers
  • to outline a few essential steps in how to use Compass
  • to have time for general questions and chat

You can conform your attendance on Facebook here.

Later Years Parent & Student Evening: 'Thriving in the Later Years'


You  are invited to an information session, 'Thriving in the Later Years'. It will take place on Wednesday 28th February, from 6.00pm – 7.30pm in the Multi-Purpose Room on the Main site.


The main aims of this session are:

  • For parents and students to be well informed about the basics of VCE and VCAL
  • To hear from past students and parents about their experiences
  • To understand our expectations relating to the Later Years of school
  • To receive some advice and suggestions about how to thrive and meet challenges successfully
  • To ask questions and meet some key staff who will be involved with your daughter in the Later Years


This session would be more useful for Yr. 10 students and families who are currently doing a VCE subject, but everyone is welcome – especially if you want to get a sense of what next year will be like.

Tea and coffee and light snacks will be provided. We hope that you will be able to come along and look forward to seeing you then.

Parent-Teacher-Student Conferences

There will be no classes in the morning and your child is expected to attend the Conference with you. Teachers will be having a short break between 2 and 2.15pm and a dinner break between 4.30 to 5.15pm so please do not bookings during these times. Information about this event will be posted through Compass and emailed to parents during the next couple of weeks.
