School Community

Our school community has a wide array of talents and knowledge, and we always appreciate them lending their time to help out around the school. Parents are valued partners in achieving the College’s goals. There are a number of areas where parents are encouraged to get involved.


The canteen provides lunches, snacks and drinks to the school community and is run by Mrs Sue Ward, Mrs Nadine Purdon and Mrs Michelle Palmer, with the help of a team of volunteers.

A range of tasty and healthy options are available when ordering lunches or purchasing snacks. Meal orders should be placed before school, while snacks and drinks are available at both recess and lunchtime.

MVAC makes use of the online ordering platform Flexischools. Click here to download the current Canteen Price List.  Canteen Menu – 2020

The canteen is open on Monday to Friday.

Please contact the canteen to arrange your child’s lunches or volunteer your time to help out.

The fiction section of the school library


The school library provides students with access to a wide range of reference material, fiction and non-fiction texts, as well as desktop computers which may be used by students and laptops which may be borrowed by our students.

The library is open to students during the second half of lunch and after school for Homework Help or to access material.

The library is run by our Librarian, Mrs Colleen Stonehouse. Donations of material in good condition are always welcome, as are parents who wish to give of their time to help out.

Please contact Mrs Stonehouse for further information regarding the library.

At Events

A number of regular and special events are open to all members of the school community. We encourage parents to attend and take part in weekly assemblies and chapel services, the Whole School Eucharist each term, and special events such as Grandparents Day, Book Fairs and the Easter Hat Parade. Keep an eye out for notes from the school, events and posts on the website and on our School app and the school newsletter for information about upcoming events.

Parents are encouraged to join in with classroom activities such as reading, art and craft from time to time. Please contact your child’s teacher to discuss ways to get involved.
