Our College is a culturally diverse community which provides a holistic education that nurtures the academic, spiritual, emotional, physical, cultural and social development of individual students in a caring, safe and supportive environment. At MSB we recognise the individuality of every one of our students. We seek to help each student become the best person they can be, by providing quality learning and teaching and making available a rich tapestry of sporting,artistic and other co-curricular activities, to help them discover and develop their personal giftedness.

I extend a very big congratulations to this year's Great Wheelbarrow Race team – Mikayla, Tahlia, Toby, Sarah, Jack, Babetha, Joyce, Braiden and Robert. The amazing ability to bounce back (resilience) and push through the pain that comes with pushing a wheelbarrow 141 kilometres along dusty roads, hot bitumen, up and down hills and over numerous collections of road kill is truly commendable.

Families of each runner can be proud of their child's efforts over the 3 day race. On and off the road, the company of these students was both enriching and a privilege. I also acknowledge and thank the staff members of the team - Jenny Rossiter, Ben Smith and Warren Part, while past teacher Di Fenwick also provided valuable assistance throughout the 3 days. Well done everyone! (PS – I hear a 2017 GWBR team is already being considered…how keen are they?!)

The Great Wheelbarrow Race

The College community will come together for a special opening and blessing ceremony on Friday June 10th from 10.30am. The Bishop of our diocese Bishop James Foley will preside over the ceremony and we will be joined by other guests, staff and students. An invitation is open to all MSB families to attend. If you would like to be part of this special day please email Hillary O'Brien at
