Message from the Principal

To educate is to make an intervention into the lives of others. When we intervene, we do so with certain assumptions about the value of what we are doing and why. Building students' capacity for future readiness is a moral-ethical learning endeavour and one that cannot be left to chance.

To achieve this, Melbourne Girls Grammar promotes a progressive, contemporary community of practice committed to providing personalised high-quality curriculum, wellbeing and co-curricular programs that enable lifelong learning for every student. We are future focused and committed to inspiring our Grammarians and equipping them with the values, knowledge and skills to be ready to make their mark on the world.

Student Profile

Name: Emma

Year Level: Year 11

Favourite Subject: Biology

Emma started at Melbourne Girls Grammar as a boarder in Year 9 and, now in Year 11, has made the most of every opportunity at the School.  

“Choosing to board is one of the biggest decisions I have made in my life,” says Emma. “My choice to board was partly because it would allow me to leave home and experience independence in a safe environment. I have become more confident in many ways. There are so many opportunities to try new things and meet inspirational people through different school programs, and to meet girls from diverse backgrounds and different cultures. We are always surrounded by passionate and driven students.” 

Emma’s favourite subjects include biology and drama. With biology, Emma enjoys the practical aspect, with many excursions to the zoo, the aquarium and the Royal Botanic Gardens (directly opposite the school) to observe what the class is learning about in the real world. “We go outside the spectrum of textbook learning and discuss real world examples,” says Emma. The utilisation of technology and the world-class facilities and equipment also enhance the learning experience. Drama also allows Emma to use her artistic and creative side and she says, “I find the process of creating purely from stimulus very interesting and fun. We have very active discussions where we all contribute and can share personal stories which we can then incorporate into performances.”

Emma is also very involved in co-curricular activities and takes part in the senior choir, Merton Chamber Voices, Melbourne Girls Grammar and Melbourne Grammar School plays, tennis and debating, and the new music theatre group, an initiative by Emma and a peer. Emma says that she has become passionate about public speaking, and says that, “it gives me greater self-confidence and increased confidence in asserting my own opinion.”
