About the project

The Methodist Ladies’ College (MLC) Foundation is proudly supporting the development of the MLC/Christ Church Grammar School (CCGS) Aquatic Precinct.

The Aquatic Precinct will be a landmark, market leading facility comprising of the existing CCGS 50-metre pool along with a new 40-by-25-metre heated pool on MLC land. This new pool will be multipurpose. It can be used as a 25-metre lap training pool, an Olympic-sized water polo court, or two 20-by-25-metre water polo training courts. Having these facilities available at MLC will impact tremendously student well-being, water safety proficiency and water sports success.

As the College continues raising vital funds to help complete this project, the MLC Foundation is delighted to facilitate a parent-initiated, student-led event which will bring the whole College together for a day of fun and philanthropy. 

The House Splash or Dash will be held on Thursday 16 May, giving every Kindergarten–Year 12 girl a chance to help raise money for the Aquatic Precinct while also earning points for their house.

On the day, all students will be encouraged to choose to either Splash laps in the CCGS pool or Dash around the MLC Oval. We also invite our Collegians, staff, past and present families to get involved.

We welcome donations to support individuals or to reflect house loyalty. Simply select to donate generally to the House Splash or Dash campaign or to a particular house using the fundraising champion tab below. Please feel free to add a fun supporters message about your house or MLC.

We also invite participation in a before school splash or a lunchtime dash, please complete the enrolment form here, or come along and cheer our athletes on with lunch time dashes and novelty races from 12.50pm.

What better way to reignite house loyalties than by embracing this opportunity to give back to MLC? Imagine what is possible by combining our efforts with over 1,000 determined students, each rallying the support of family and friends, to blow our Splash or Dash fundraising target of $200,000 out of the water.

Our fundraising partnership with the Australian Sports Foundation ensures all donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. Please consider a donation of $25 could purchase a kickboard to help our learners, $50 would provide hours of competitive fun with a water polo ball and $100 will stretch a long way towards lane ropes.

Along with great fun and excitement, this event provides an important opportunity for our community to take part in a philanthropic cause and witness the impact of giving—it really is an intergenerational gift.

Every girl and every donation counts.
