Parent Information Nights

Thank you to those families who were able to attend the Parent Information Nights that we have held over the last fortnight at the College. These are important events on the College calendar and help us focus on our commitment to the partnership we have with our families. We hope that they provided parents and guardians the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the learning and wellbeing programs offered here at OLMC. The presentations will be made available to all families via PAM or will be directly sent to you by your child’s Pastoral Leader. These events are reviewed by the College. We welcome your feedback, so please email any comments or suggestions to your child’s Pastoral Leader or to the email below:


Time & Space Evenings

In the next few weeks, we have the organisation Time & Space visiting OLMC to facilitate evenings for our Year 8 students and their fathers or male mentors, and for Year 7 students and their mothers or female mentors. The evening provides precious time for these significant adults to connect with our young people. The night is facilitated by Dr Kelly Harris, who works in both primary and secondary schools as a psychologist and who has contributed to the Time & Space program over many years. We hope many of you can take up the opportunity to attend. Details of how to book your place for these evenings will be emailed out to our Year 7 and 8 parents and guardians.

Elevate Australia

At the College we work with Elevate Education, who provide tips and strategies for our Senior students regarding exam preparation, time management in the Senior years, as well as revision tips and motivation. On Thursday 1 February our Year 12 students had a session with Elevate regarding time management, and left the workshop with a range of strategies to be effective in using their time, whilst having a balanced Year 12.

Elevate Education also provide parents and guardians with access to online webinars. You do not need to have a student doing VCE to attend. There are three remaining webinars for this term listed below:

How You Can Help Your Child Manage Their Time

How You Can Make Technology an Ally (& Not the Enemy!)
