MLC (Mechai Learning Commons) Bookings

Flexible Schedule: the MLC operates a flexible schedule to maximise our ability to be responsive to student inquiries, to support student agency in their access to the MLC and to ensure MLC visits are purposeful.

Bookings for the MLC are not mandatory prior to a visit but booking ahead facilitates communication & adequate preparation – we want to create the best experience we can for you & your class.

Classes can aim for 1 – 2 visits per cycle. Students can also come to the MLC in small groups during lesson time as required but please send a note with them so MLC staff can understand & support the purpose of the visit.


Up to 3 classes can book the MLC at one time.

If you have not booked and the MLC is too crowded when you visit, please check with the teachers already present and give preference if necessary to the other classes. This rarely happens so feel free to visit as required.

Bookings can range from quick return’n’borrow visits to more extended periods of reading or more specific tasks or meet-ups with other classes or co-teaching.

Need more information? Please email all MLC staff (K.Fon, K.Tong, K.Fern and Philip) at or contact Philip directly at
