For Year 12s, their final days at OLMC are now a reality. Practice exams and revision classes are occurring alongside preparations for varied graduation events. Also in countdown mode are the M² Junior Production cast and crew of Hating Alison Ashley. Final rehearsal regimes are in full swing for their 3 shows over 14–15 October. A third group involved in final preparations for a big event are our Design, Art and Technology (DAT) staff and students. They are currently shortlisting and selecting artworks and other media for showcasing at the Annual Art Show, to be launched on Thursday 13 October. Needless to say, October is a huge month at OLMC.
Like all Victorian schools, we have been reviewing and strengthening our Student Safety policies and practices in response to specific requirements of the Victorian Child Safe Standards, as set out in Ministerial Order No. 870 (2016). As a Catholic school and a Ministry of Mercy Education Ltd, we have a mission-driven, moral and legal responsibility to provide a safe and secure environment for students and to protect them from all forms of abuse and neglect. We are steadfast in our resolve to honour this responsibility. More information about our key commitments and policies can be viewed on the Student Safety webpage, under About Us.
