Invested in Learning

Welcome

Introduction

At Melbourne Girls Grammar, the learner is at the centre of everything we do. It shapes our spaces, what our teachers, staff and community do and how our Grammarians learn. Through forward-thinking practices and programs, we educate and learn. We strive to achieve excellence through rich, diverse, rigorous and holistic learning experiences, helping to build a community of lifelong, scholarly, innovative and future-focused learners.  

Learning is just one part of the MGGS ecosystem. Along with culture, environment and community, it helps enhance and support our Grammarians at each stage of development. Everything we do at MGGS reflects on our goal of developing the knowledge, skills and agency our Grammarians need for life beyond 'the red brick walls'. We want learning to be enjoyable and to foster the curiosity that motivates everyone to apply themselves to their fullest, to look to the future and feel empowered to explore the unknown and define their path without bias.

In this edition of IE (Information Exchange), we explore how learning happens across various parts of the School and our wider community. Let us now dive into the distinct ways we go about our learning day in, and day out.  

We hope you enjoy hearing from some of the many voices that demonstrate a genuine love of learning that is a hallmark of Melbourne Girls Grammar.
