A home for wellbeing and Sporting Pathways
The construction of our highly anticipated aquatic centre and outdoor multipurpose playing fields has commenced with the first stage of the development the aquatic centre due to open late 2018. Once complete, the Wellbeing Precinct will transform one third of the School’s campus.
This exciting project will include all the features that will make it the best wellbeing setting for girls now, and for years to come.
The success of our girls lies not only in their academic ability, but also in their physical and emotional wellbeing. Sport and Physical Education are major ingredients in the making of strong, confident Mentone Girls. It is well known that physical activity is linked with improved self-esteem, team work skills, energy levels, quality of sleep and concentration. The benefits of the Wellbeing Precinct both in and out of the classroom are immeasurable.
