Melbourne Girls Grammar

Melbourne Girls Grammar’s Junior Years Program (Prep – Year 4) located at our beautiful Morris Hall campus in South Yarra, inspires girls to be strong capable learners who dare to imagine the possibilities. With a curriculum that demonstrates our holistic approach to education, our girls are provided with experiences designed to develop important learning dispositions. We want our girls to be creative, critical thinkers, committed, curious and collaborative learners. These dispositions sit at the centre of our program and are surrounded by all the experiences our girls are offered.

Academic learning is integrated with social development, positive relationships and an understanding of personal responsibility. Our curriculum is rich and diverse with a strong emphasis on literacy and numeracy, developing fundamental skills for life. Specialist teachers provide creative and enriching learning experiences in music, the arts, Italian, STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), physical performance and health education and information literacy.

The environment is architecturally designed to promote wonder, possibility and challenge for students. It is a welcoming place for our girls and their families. Our flexible learning studios enable our girls to collaborate and create, support personalised learning, and integrate a range of learning technologies. Our team of teachers are dedicated to ensure that they have everything they need to be inspired to achieve amazing things. The environment at Morris Hall supports and promotes a deep respect for each other and for our environment.

At the heart of our Junior Years Program is a commitment to the wellbeing of every girl. We respect and foster the diverse talents and interests of our girls. We believe in listening to our girls, responding to their developmental needs, and assisting them to negotiate and navigate challenges, both academic and social. Programs are designed for high engagement and for the stretch we know our girls aspire to achieve.

The Junior Years are a time where girls are offered opportunities and experiences that invite them to explore, wonder and discover the world around them, so they may uncover their passions and pursue these interests within a secure and positive environment. We believe our program encourages girls’ natural abilities to flourish and prepares them exceptionally well for their transition into the middle years.

Message from the Principal

Melbourne Girls Grammar has a clear vision for the education of our contemporary students. We are committed to preparing them to navigate their future with confidence, resourcefulness, and the ability to respond to complex challenges. Our girls have the capacity to be the positive influence in the many life contexts they will experience beyond our red brick walls.

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.”
