Mighty the Lion was introduced to the public on 7 March 2020 as the official mascot for MDIS. The mascot quickly gained popularity. Since the creation of the mascot, Mighty has appeared in numerous public appearances and publicity materials, including a MDIS PSA video in relation to COVID-19. The mascot was conceptualised by our student in a recent campus-wide Mascot Competition and the idea was expanded by staff. Visually, rather than focusing on the ferocity of a lion, we wanted to show off warm and bubbly features of a lion. Amidst uncertainties of the future, we chose a lion and named it “Mighty” to represent strength, courage and leadership. These are also the same values which we hope to foster in our community – staying resilience in the face of adversity.
