The MGSC Under 15 and 17-20 age group teams competed at the State Cross Country in Bundoora on Thursday 20th July. With a huge downpour of rain just before the U15 event, the course was extremely muddy with many competitors having a tumble on a few particular segments of the course. Both of our teams finished in second spot with a Silver medal.
Another medal result for both age groups as they were Gold medalists in 2016. Congratulations to Millie B, K. B., Maddie A, Daisy W and Teiki W; Emily M, Emilie T, Sarah M, Tash B and Katie M on their achievements in this years Cross Country season. We wish Millie B the best with her upcoming XC National events, and Emily M (Yr 12) all the best for her future running career in half-marathons and marathons beyond MGSC. Good luck!

Miss Molina took the aerobics teams to the State competition on Sunday 4th in Geelong. The girls did really well in the wildcard round in the morning with a 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th with one team getting the highest score MGSC had received so far. In the afternoon, one of the Year 7 teams competed and placed 5th in their section. Unfortunately we didn't have a team qualify for Nationals this year but the girls have done an exceptional job in their training and development nonetheless! The girls are on to training for the Spring Challenge. Go Mentone!.
It was that time of the year again, when everyone at MGSC, students AND teachers, came together to perform an array of musical items at the annual House Music Competition. Each of the four houses, lead by their house captains and conductors, met on several occasions to rehearse the set song 'Party in the USA' by Miley Cyrus, their own choice song, and their house chants.
For many weeks leading up the competition, the house choirs and instrumental bands practiced during lunch times every week to prepare the songs as best as they could. On the day of the competition, the gym was filled with enthusiasm and the colours of green, blue, purple and yellow. It was great to see that everyone was supporting their houses. The highlight for most were the beautiful performances by the house soloists. Never have we seen such amazing singing talent at our school, ranging across the year levels. The house captains lead their houses for their chants both on and off the stage, battling it out to be the loudest. Each house interpreted 'Party in the USA' differently, accompanied by dancing, props and even Hannah Montana!
All houses put in a great effort, but again it was Kenny who took first place. Despite Melba coming disappointingly last (many would disagree with the judge's decision), it was a successful event, bringing everyone together to share the art of music.
A big thankyou to all the house captains, music captains, conductors, accompanists, choirs, bands, and Mr Veevers for making this a memorable moment. We will definitely miss being part of MGSC House Music.
Melba House Captains Alyssa Hopkins and Sasha Long
On Tuesday 16 May the 2017 Athletics Carnival started off with a fashion walk around the track which showcased many impressive costumes, followed by a House chant with Melba taking the win.
