At MLC we understand that everyone can lead, and that leadership can be developed in all who seek it.


Knowing that each student has different strengths and aspirations, we offer a number of diverse and meaningful leadership opportunities. The MLC leadership journey is characterised by choice, support and specialised leadership roles that prepare students to become world-ready women.

We encourage early foundations for leadership. Students from Year 3 has encouraged to apply for an array of leadership positions covering either classroom-based or co-curricular responsibilities, and Year 6 students will each be given a leadership role over the course of the year. Leadership opportunities also exist for students at the College's remote sites, MLC Marshmead and MLC Banksia.

These roles create a positive experience where students can discover their leadership potential in a supportive environment, building confidence and developing their skillset. By working alongside peers and staff in a position of responsibility, students are encouraged to co-operate with one another, improve their communication skills and learn to lead in an effective and organised manner.

During their time at MLC, students have the opportunity to be considered for over 1,500 leadership positions in a range of areas. Whether a student is interested in house activities, volunteering in the community, driving change, advocating sustainable habits or paving the way in technological innovation - MLC provides opportunities to lead and make a meaningful contribution.
