It was a beautiful morning on Friday, June 4 when more than 70 MIC parents and their children came along to our first ever Adolescent Community Open Morning.
Designed exclusively for our Early Years and Primary families so they could come along and discover more about our high school program, the Open Morning was a tremendous success.
This short 2.5 minute video also gives a great snapshot of the event:
In small groups, families were able to observe the Year 7 and 8 students in a maths lesson (on unit pricing) as well as an economics and business lesson. Parents then observed a Mathematical Methods lesson, which is an advanced maths subject for our Year 11 and 12 students.
They were then taken on a tour of the Adolescent Community by our Year 9 and 10 students where they learned how the integrated curriculum works and the importance of the Montessori principles in our high school curriculum, before joining a Land Tour with our Land Lab Manager, Andrew Maitland.
The event concluded with refreshments in our Food for Thought Cafe in the Pavilion while listening to short speeches given by some of our Year 11 and 12 students, as well as an alumni student who graduated from Year 12 last year, who shared on their experiences at MIC.
It was a fun and informative day for all, with each family also receiving e a comprehensive Information Booklet on the full Year 7 – Year 12 Adolescent Community program at MIC.
The Information Booklet can be downloaded here:
