Year 7 German Excursion ‘Virtual Trip Through Germany’
Jun 14th, 2022Yesterday all Year 7 students participated in the German Excursion ‘Virtual Trip Through Germany’. They explored the topic 360º degrees https://www.360cities.net/ from the digital JuniorUni program of the Goethe-Institut https://junioruni.goethe.de/, experiencing the world of virtual reality and embarked on a virtual trip through German cities. This Incursion Program was hosted by Owen Small, a teacher from the Goethe-Institut Melbourne, and supported by the Victorian Government. A key dimension of the Victorian Curriculum for German involves understanding the cultural dimension that shapes and is shaped by the language. The Year 7 German curriculum at Mullauna College has an intercultural language learning orientation to enable students to participate meaningfully in intercultural experiences, to develop new ways of seeing and being in the world, and to understand more about themselves in the process.

$5.23 Million Building Upgrade!
May 20th, 2021Some amazing news as shared by Principal Barbara Laidlaw today. Dear students, parents and carers This afternoon I received a phone call from Mr Dustin Halse, the local State Member for Ringwood. He had stepped out of the Parliament Budget Speech by Treasurer Tim Pallas, to let me know that Mullauna College has been included in this year’s budget as part of the government's priority for school upgrading. Mullauna has been allocated $5.23 million! This news came as a wonderful surprise! Around 2 years ago I gave Dustin a draft estimate of the costs for a two-stage redevelopment program that I’d asked Brand architects to outline for our school. This draft has formed the basis for Dustin Halse's advocacy for a building upgrade on behalf of Mullauna College. I expressed my thanks to Dustin Halse on behalf of our current and future school community - very enthusiastically! This upgrade is a wonderful opportunity for us to add to the refurbishment works, new buildings and landscaping of 2015-2017, and to create additional, new learning spaces for our students and staff to work in every day.
