    Good Afternoon all.

    You may wonder why I have left it so long to report on last week's Board Meeting. This was because I wanted to wait until today, so that not only can we get the extra information that I have to impart onboard, but also give you something to celebrate about on the weekend. :)

    MMC Polar Bears and Mufti
    by Briar McFetridge - Friday, 17 June 2016, 10:27 AM

    A huge thank you to everyone who participated in the Polar Bear Plunge on Wednesday!  It was great to see so many year 12 and 13 students down there, braving the cold in memory of Jed Roberts and Harrison Mundy. 

    It was also awesome to see those who made an effort to dress in orange mufti for the day. 

    Altogether we raised $1664, which will go towards supporting Leukaemia.

    These are a couple photos from the Plunge
