My daughter's education at MGC continues to be let down by poor staff, poor management and poor decisions. Counselling promised to Year 8s to inform their Yr 9 electives choices was promised, but never given (these choices can have long-term repercussions at MGC); 14 yr olds were shown an 'M' rated film at the beginning of the year which featured prostitution, abuse, depression and suicide; a 'Smiling Minds' in-class wellbeing program was heavily promoted but never delivered to students; dates for upcoming Maths tests are not posted on the digital noticeboard, alongside other due dates, as a matter of policy; a Yr 9 Science text was never assigned (the Principal belatedly suggested a 'non-compulsory' text for further reading); prospective VCE students sat through a troubling account of depression and anorexia by a former graduate at the information night. MGC fails its students in educational care.

Melbourne Girls' College used to be such a great school. It only started getting shocking when Ms. Karen Money stepped in as the new principle. MGC now only cares about their uniform rules and the way people see the school rather than education. Some of the girls have their skirts a little above the recommended length and a few teachers said to them that they look slutty. Also my daughter was wearing the correct uniform with a school jumper after school hours and was walking to the tram on the road and a teacher grabbed her and pulled her off to tell her that she couldn't catch the tram unless she put her blazer on. My daughter was hot, and had to wait 10 mins for another tram to arrive. Also they've made each class longer which makes students not work and learn as much because its so overwhelming. Also a lot of the new teachers Karen Money has employed are BAD. Rude, don't care about students, think they're better than everyone. You have to have passion and inspire students. There are many more examples that shows that the school is now a wreck but that would take pages to write it all.
I'm upset to say this all because my other daughter who graduated while Ms. Crowe was the principal had a wonderful high school experience. My other daughter however, has not.

Under the new Principal, there is a lot of discontent amongst students. The lessons are so long that very little learning can be effectively achieved in them. The educational standards appear to be very poor in some quarters. One teacher recommended the smoking of joints to students at a Music Camp, in front of their parents. He is still at the school. Students are encouraged to feel pride in their uniform by being offered a lottery ticket worth $5, featuring an image of a hamburger, if they are in correct uniform. The selection criteria is no longer leaderhip potential, but ability in science & technology. MGC is no longer the school it so recently was under its former Principal. A very great shame...
