Mentone Girls' Grammar has a rich history. Since the first day of class in 1899 when just five Mentone Girls took their place in history, to today's thriving community of over 6,000 students and 'Old Girls', we have held fast to the philosophy of our Founders, the four Simpson sisters, "to be bold, to do one's best and to never give in".
Over the years, we have seen major changes from buildings and uniforms to community attitudes and the social change that comes with each new generation. Succeeding generations of principals, staff, parents, students and School Council leaders have been responsible for the success of the School today and we honour them for their passion and commitment. Together they have contributed so much to the social fabric of our School and it is upon their shoulders that we stand together as a successful community today.
With a strong sense of purpose we have been able to stand the test of time and remain committed to our mission, to empower girls to aspire to excellence, make a difference and, as enterprising global citizens, rise boldly to the opportunities of their times.
