On Thursday the 3rd of March, the Student Leadership Team, as well as club members across all year levels, came together for our annual Clubs Expo! Held over on Centenary Lawn, we were all given the opportunity to learn about co-curricular activities on offer throughout OLMC, whether that be Sport, Elite Dance, or Creative Writing Club! It was an awesome opportunity for clubs to sign up and meet new participants, and it was great to hear some impromptu performances and learn more about each club through the mic! This is a great way for them to meet new friends and to be part of the OLMC community. A big thank you to all those involved in setting up, and for helping increase participation in all activities across the school!

Performing Arts Ensemble Day
It's been a great start to the Arts this year at OLMC! Over the past few weeks, we've seen music expos, first lessons, and auditions for the Senior Production and so much more. On the 9th of March, we even celebrated Ensemble Day - where all of our amazing ensembles came together for their first rehearsals of the year! It truly has been awesome to hear some great music once again, and we cannot wait to see what the rest of the year will bring across all corners of the arts, so stay tuned!
House Swimming Carnival
On Friday 4 March, OLMC had its annual Swimming Carnival at Boroondara Sports Complex. It was incredible to see the level of participation across the year levels on the day and see the majority of students competing for the house trophy. There were lots of different activities on the day such as indoor volleyball, novelty, 50m and 100m races for butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke, freestyle and the year level relay. The hot weather brought out the excitement and laughter of the OLMC students and it was unbelievable to hear the house cheering going on from the tents on the sides of the pool. Overall, it was a fun and memorable day for the Year 12 students having it be their last swimming carnival and an exciting day for the Year 7 students who experienced their first OLMC swimming carnival.
Thank you to all the staff and student helpers, Sports Captain and House Coordinators for a great day!
These were the final results:
