Activities & Sports
At MPW, we organise social and physical activities all year round providing our students a fun and relaxed environment to help them stay healthy, interact with peers who share common interests, enhance leadership skills and prepare for the future.
We believe studies are just part of the student experience; we encourage our students to take part in the social events ranging from raising awareness through a charity campaign, joining a debating session or simply stretching their legs and arms at the local climbing centre.
Students who love sport will have plenty of opportunity to meet up with likeminded friends – or make new ones through a large variety of sports clubs here at MPW.
University Support Program
Each year our Year 12 students take part in a two week schedule that starts the process of preparing for university. Students attend workshops including How to Write an Outstanding Personal Statement, Broadening Your Appeal (Extended Project Qualification and voluntary work), Student Finance and a variety of careers talks focusing on vocations such as Medicine, Dentistry and Veterinary Medicine.
