MLC will become a hive of activity when we hold our inaugural Arts Week between Monday 26 June and Friday 30 June – the perfect way to finish off Term 2!

A joint initiative between Jess, Inneke and Alice (our Music, Art and Drama Prefects respectively), Arts Week is the perfect opportunity to discover some new opportunities to participate in, perhaps in an area yet to be explored.

Highlights during the week include Battle of the Bands: Students vs Teachers which is sure to inspire some friendly competition, and the Light Festival on Wednesday night, with art projections beaming onto buildings in Centenary Plaza. The Light Festival has been running since 2013 as MLC’s take on the popular White Night event. “When the girls proposed Arts Week, it seemed a natural synergy to combine the two,” says Chris Lloyd, Head of Art and Design. “It’s been a great idea from them!” The night will also include music, a BBQ, soup stall and hot drinks all available.

“The three of us came up with the idea of Arts Week at the beginning of the year,” says Jess of herself, Inneke and Alice. “We realised that not all students were aware of all the opportunities, groups and clubs available to them. It’s been busy organising the event but it’s been really fun to work with the other Prefects to brainstorm activity ideas for the week.”

Other activities during the week include lunchtime performances by the MLC Drumline, Middle School Chamber Choir and Saxophone Quartet, and lunchtime Theatre Sports.

“The week is a wonderful initiative to showcase a wide range of MLC’s Arts opportunities,” says Anne Wallington, Head of Senior School. “Our students and staff are able to enjoy and celebrate each other’s talents and be actively involved in some element of the Arts. The girls have been very committed and enthusiastic in their planning, and I’m really looking forward to getting to as many of the events as possible!”

It is a testament to the hard work and community spirit of the College, with involvement coming from students, teachers and parents to bring the week to life. “The teachers have been so supportive and very generous in offering their time to help organise the logistics of the week,” enthuses Jess. “I’m really excited. It’s so nice to see the MLC community coming together to have some fun with music, drama and art!”
