Your support allows the School to invest in first-class facilities, in students and in resources that enhance the educational experience for all students from our youngest, through to our young adults for now and into the future.
We are so grateful for the ongoing generosity and support we receive from our parents, alumni, students, staff, and friends of the School which helps deliver our Vision and secure the future of our wonderful School.
At several points in the early days of our long history, the School was saved through the generous benefaction of parents and friends securing the School’s future and our ability to become the vibrant, dynamic learning environment of today.
Your gift, large or small makes a real and positive impact on Mentone Grammar and all gifts over $2 are tax deductible within Australia.
Major Giving Opportunities
A major gift is a substantial contribution that makes a transformative impact on the lives of our students. Over the past 100 years, several members of our Community have made significant gifts to support our students, contributing to buildings, scholarships, resources, and other programs.
One such gift is our wonderful Shoreham beachfront camp on the Mornington Peninsula, which was donated by Robert Sykes, a foundation Board member. This generous gift has enabled generations of students to experience the unique learning opportunities available, and for many, has been the catalyst for lifelong friendships built during this bonding camp experience.
A great deal of work has been undertaken to research and develop our School’s Masterplan and ensure it supports our positive culture, educational and co-curricular offerings, our care for the individual, and to ensure that our staff and students have the best resources in which to operate.
Each new facility will be developed in an environmentally sustainable way with the latest in Learning and Teaching and ICT resources. Our strategic goals of enhanced teaching practice alongside the development of more independent learners are fundamental to our planning.
Your support will ensure current and future generations of Mentonians continue to have access to first-class resources and facilities and ensure the delivery of our contemporary, dynamic, and innovative education for our families.
