Highlight of the Year

In December 2009 a new initiative of selecting a highlight of the year was initiated at MHG. All classes and teachers proposed their nominees for the title. The most appreciated actions included collaborative events. In addition, the number of charity activities and volunteer work nominations increased every year. In 2015 the students started to choose the highlight of the year of MHG where also the teachers and parents could vote. In 2018, it was decided that instead of highlighting only one event or activity per year, we would like to bring out all highlights of the year that are important to MHG.
