Welcome To Mullauna College

It is with pleasure that I invite you to explore this website to gain a snapshot of our school, Mullauna, which is a year 7 to 12 co-educational, state secondary school located in the eastern Melbourne suburb of Mitcham. We are a growing, mid-sized college with an enrolment of 550 students made up of equal numbers of boys and girls and students from many cultural backgrounds. Our students are renowned for their friendliness and this is reflected in the harmonious environment that students experience on campus each day.   

Mullauna College has a long and proud history of academic excellence and of providing a stimulating and secure learning environment for our students. We are a vibrant learning community with a vision of continual improvement, as we all learn and strive to reach our highest potential. In this we exemplify the college motto of ‘Success Though Learning Together’. Students are supported and encouraged to aspire to achieve their personal best in academic and co-curricular endeavours, and to be persistent and resilient learners who value curiosity in themselves and others.

Over their six years at Mullauna, students develop an understanding that their time at school is the start of their learning in life. From year 7, students are equipped with knowledge and thinking skills that will carry them into their future pathways. Mullauna College provides students with any time, any place, any platform learning. We believe that it is essential that our students see themselves as global citizens who have a valuable contribution to make to society on many levels.

Mullauna is a learning community where students and teachers are actively engaged in ongoing learning. In the classroom the focus is on creating a learning environment that is stimulating, rigorous and values excellence. The teaching and learning in the classroom is enriched by a comprehensive range of co-curricular programs that provide students with the opportunity to achieve their personal best in whatever areas capture their interest and suits their learning style. Students are encouraged to participate in camps, sport, music, the performing arts, debating, the World Challenge expedition and the Presentation Ball, as well as pursue leadership opportunities through student governance and student-led activities. While the college focus is very much on academic excellence, the belief that happy, healthy, resilient students learn and achieve their best is a guiding philosophy. Mullauna’s students are supported in their intellectual, emotional, social and physical development by a highly professional group of teachers and education support staff.

Our college is entering an exciting era as the plans for new buildings and renovations come to fruition. These facilities will provide students and staff with modern, well-equipped, purposeful learning spaces that promote and support stimulating teaching and learning. These improvements include a new Junior Learning Centre, a new Art, Design and Technology Centre, a new ‘Fab Lab’ for 3D printing and laser technology, a new Master Chef-style kitchen, a new VCE Learning Centre and common room, a new staff centre and renovated library space and landscaping which includes an amphitheatre and additional hard courts for students’ recreational use. 

At Mullauna we are very proud of our students whom we see as the ambassadors of our college. We invite you to meet our students and staff on a tour of the college and we look forward to welcoming your family into our learning community.
