Middle School (Years 9-10)

Year 9 Coordinator - Ms Emma Lionello

Year 10 Coordinator - Mr Irma Koulouris

The Middle School team works together to look after the wellbeing, behaviour and progress of all Year 9 and 10 students. Mac.Rob is a place of energy, enthusiasm and purpose; we aim to make the students' time at Mac.Rob enjoyable and academically challenging. 

VCE Course Counselling and Subject Selection

All Year 10 girls spend time with a member of the course counselling team so that they fully understand the VCE requirements and are guided towards making the most appropriate course selection for the following 2 years.

Co-Curricular Program

All Year 9's and 10's are encouraged to participate in our wide co-curricular program which covers a huge array of sports, music, drama, debating, social service, clubs and interest groups. There is something for everyone at Mac.Rob and if girls wish to start up a new club or group, the opportunity exists to do so.

Student Wellbeing

If any students are experiencing any difficulties at the school, they can make an appointment to see the Student Wellbeing Co-ordinator. In addition there are Peer Support leaders, specially trained Year 12 students, who are available at lunchtimes to offer support, friendship and advice.

Year 9 Camps

Year 9 Orientation Camps are held in February and the camp is a fantastic opportunity for the students to get to know one another and their teachers Camp is an important part of the Year 9 Transition program.

The camp is a wonderful experience with a focus on cohesiveness, teamwork and friendship and the exciting adventure activities include abseiling, rafting, a ropes course and bike riding. Evening activities include a trivia quiz, square dancing and a concert devised by the students themselves. 

Year 9 Parent Information Session

To further help with transition we have another information session early in the new year. This is an opportunity for parents to meet the Coordinators and discuss any queries or concerns they may have regarding their daughter's transition. 

Year 10 Programs and Camp

Year 10 is a very busy year at Mac.Rob and there are many exciting opportunities for the students. There are numerous leadership programs in which the girls can participate such as becoming a LINKS Leader, being a tour guide for Open Days, speaking to prospective parents, singing at the Legacy ANZAC Day ceremony and organising joint activities with Melbourne High School. Many Year 10 girls also take up the chance to apply for a student exchange to Japan, France or Germany. The Year 10 Camp at the end of the year is compulsory and is a fundamental part of the year 10 program as it promotes student wellbeing and further develops important leadership qualities as students progress into VCE.

Work Experience program

The Work Experience program is conducted in December. The students are responsible for organising a one week workplace experience of their choice. Through this process they learn job application and interview skills. The work experience gives the girls valuable information about the world of work and helps them to determine their future career path.

Careers Fast Track

To help the students consider their prospective career path, the Careers Coordinator organises extensive careers counselling for them. The students and have an interview with a trained careers counsellor in order to determine their occupational preferences.
