On the 8 March, we celebrate International Women's Day. Throughout our 137 year history, we have continued to be strong advocates for equality, education and empowerment.

Some past examples have been starting a Business School back in 1917; hiring specialist teachers in the 1920s in areas such as millinery or commerical art so as to prepare MLC students for roles outside of the home; encouraging our students to break stereotypes in terms of subjects or occupations.

International Women's Day is a significant day at MLC. This week and next, our schools have been holding International Women's Day assemblies, and many of our Senior students have attended multiple external IWD breakfasts and events.

Hear from some of our students and our Principal as to what IWD is about and why we need to celebrate it!
