Most MHS classrooms have not been renovated in decades. The interior of the marvellous heritage listed building requires significant rejuvenation to ensure our classrooms are appropriate teaching spaces for today’s educational needs.
With the centenary of the building now approaching, it is our ambition to complete a phased rejuvenation of every classroom by 2027.
In a wonderful display of community determination and support, we hosted our first Giving Day event in 2018, raising an incredible $496,077 to upgrade seven classrooms. This was only possible through donations from 1,353 generous members of the school community.
Through much of 2020 and 2021 lockdowns slowed progress, forcing cancellation of fundraising events and keeping builders offsite.
By 2022 we could lift the pace, hosting another Giving Day in December. Our extraordinary School community rallied again. 120 volunteers took in a marvellous total of $402,000 from 1,220 donors, to upgrade a further five classrooms.

Donations over $5,000 will be recognised via a plaque in a newly renovated classroom.
