The Arts and Cultural Trust raises funds to promote and support the arts within the school, the City of Stonnington and the wider community. Areas of interest are music, media and theatre studies, studio arts, visual communication design, and Aboriginal and cultural heritage.
In response to a request from Friends of Music, in 2021, funds were allocated to address the school’s shortage of Double Bass instruments. With only one functioning double bass for performances, rehearsals and music lessons, student learning outcomes were significantly impacted. Three double basses were purchased for the Music Department to bridge this gap in amenity. In 2021, members of the GM&B also banded together to raise funds to purchase an electric organ for the School.
In 2017, through the generous support of our donors, and in conjunction with the MHS Friends of Music, $30,000 was raised for a new grand piano for the music department. Find out more here.
A donation today will help us continue to support artistic excellence at MHS.
