Health Promotion Trust
Our philosophy is more than just marks; it’s building resilience and skills for life. The Health Promotion Trust focuses on programs that support the physical and emotional wellbeing of our students. The funds enable the school to run a wide range programs and support services including: wellbeing workshops and programs, supporting students with a variety of health and learning needs, assisting Academic Mentors helping students impacted by COVID-19, and counselling and case management.
The Future Fund was established in 2018 to enable us to address the needs of our students and ensure that we can respond to the most urgent priorities such as the impact of COVID-19. Funds are unrestricted, enabling us to respond quickly to the school’s most pressing needs.
New Generation Classrooms (Building Fund)*
Help us transform our classrooms into appropriate teaching spaces for today's educational needs. Our grand old building is nearing a century and whilst spectacular the facilities are desperately in need of attention. It is our ambition to complete a phased rejuvenation of every classroom by 2027.
Help us assist MHS students in need and ensure all our young men have the opportunity to fully benefit from our all-encompassing education, regardless of background or circumstance.
Arts and Cultural Trust
Help us to provide a transformative learning environment for MHS artists whist developing a lifelong appreciation of the arts and culture amongst all our graduates.
