It’s Full Steam Ahead…

I have been really impressed with the start to the 2020 school year, not only in terms of all the logistics, timetables, and other administrative elements that have been sorted; but also in the way the students across the entire campus have returned and started the school year.College life is now in full swing.

Being in Community

Mueller College is one giant, living, heaving and thriving community. Its boundaries stretch well beyond the school gate – it shares the embrace of the Early Childcare centre, Mueller Community Church and Peninsular Palms Retirement Village. It is one huge living organism.But what contributes to it being such a special and unique community, are the strong community characteristics it possesses. Not just through a catchy slogan or in a convincing mission statement, but evidenced in the actions and the day to day goings on that occur at 75 Morris Road.
