Instrumental Music

We currently offer small group lessons in Guitar, Percussion and Vocal.  Small group ensembles perform for students and in public. 

The College is keen to expand our performing arts program.  There will be an increase in both classroom and instrumental music teaching in 2008.  Our current master planning process includes the upgrade of the existing 280 seat theatre and the addition of purpose built performing arts spaces.

 

Student Representative Council (SRC

The SRC at Maribyrnong College is a committee of students designed to be the “voice” of the students in the college. The SRC makes executive decisions about various issues and problems relayed to them, from other students.

There is a nomination process for all students selected to be a representative. A maximum of 3 students per form are nominated by coordinators, then an anonymous vote is cast by other members of the class to elect the representative and emergency representative. Only one student will be elected from each class. The representative is required to attend all meetings and excursions for the SRC. A President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer are later elected by the SRC.

Throughout the year, SRC representatives organise and run the School Social (usually held in Term 3), out of uniform days and other activities. They also attend several leadership and role modelling seminars and excursions over the year.

It is a privilege and honour to be an SRC representative for Maribyrnong College. 

 

Inter School Sport

All students are able to try out to participate in the Victorian State Schools Sporting competitions.  We participate in every sport in which we have enough students interested in making up a team.  The teams usually train for three or four weeks before the competition at lunchtimes and after school.  Competition goes through stages, from local to district, regional and finally state championships.  Our policy about participation is that students should show good team spirit and good sportsmanship, rather than focussing on talent alone.  Students in the sports teams have the advantage of being able to play in teams along side elite athletes who are in our Sports Specialism Program
