Kind, curious, imaginative, bold, unique … The Girls on Fire podcast celebrates the students, staff and community members who capture the spirit of MLC.
Floodlights, Camera, Action
This week we're joined by a returning guest, MLC Collegian, journalist and documentary filmmaker Zoe Flood. Zoe has worked for the BBC, the Guardian, the New York Times and other leading media outlets covering topics from gambling addiction to extremism in sub-Saharan Africa. MLC media students Hannah, Emily and Lucy sat down with her to discuss what inspired her to pursue journalism and her advice for aspiring journalists.
Put on Your Dancing Shoes
The Years 7-11 Dance Showcase is coming up on the 29th of June. To celebrate, we spoke with Emma, Scarlett and April about their creative process for choreographing their dances, as well as what attendees to the performance can expect.
Flashback: Suzanne Harrison Found Her Fire
This week we're continuing the trend of celebrating our collegians with a flashback episode. Two of our students caught up with collegian and author Suzanne Harrison to discuss her 2021 book, The Colour of Thunder. As aspiring authors themselves, they ask about her writing process, where she draws inspiration, and what it takes to become a published author.
School to Scholarship
As part of our MLC All-Stars series, we welcomed collegian Christine Bamford to discuss her being awarded the UWA Winthrop Scholarship. Christine talks about how the scholars were chosen, what the scholarship means to her, and her tips for anyone pursuing a similar goal.
This week, MLC Student Leaders Jade (Year 12) and Izzie (Year 6) interview collegian Maya Farah about her experience taking part in the Menzies Emerging Leaders Program. They discuss what she has learned, what it takes to be a great leader, and how they hope to use their leadership skills to shape the future.
Heart to Heart
Year 8 student Saieshaa and her mum Dr Hemah Sakara are heading to Fiji to help with the opening of the first Children's Heart Hospital. MLC Chaplain Simone Smalley catches up with them to find out more about their important work, and what the MLC Community can do to support them.
