Over the last few weeks we have been holding interviews for staff that are replacing team members who are moving to new opportunities as well as new staff who are able to help with new primary classes we are starting.
I have been encouraged and impressed by the large number of high quality candidates that have applied. I feel grateful and profoundly blessed to introduce to you some of the new staff who are coming to be part of MCC in 2018.
Mr David Elsing - Director of Teaching and Learning
Mr David Elsing has had over 10 years teaching experience across a range of subjects and is currently in his third year as Head of the Arts at St. Stephen's School, Duncraig. He was formerly Assistant Chaplain, Teacher and Resident Boarding Master at The Scots College, Sydney and has been involved in educational consultancy in Wales, the UK.

Mr Will Meyer - Head of Student Services
Hi, this is Will Meyer and I’ll be joining the Mundaring Christian College community as Head of Student Services. Thank you to everyone I’ve met so far for the warm welcome and I look forward to getting to know students, parents and faculty in the weeks to come. A little about me, I’ve been in education for over 25 years and have worked in schools from South Africa to England, as Head of Science and Deputy Principal and almost everything in between! Western Australia holds a special place in my heart and I’ve had the privilege of teaching at some of WA’s best Private Schools over the last dozen years. I’m excited to now be part of Mundaring Christian College and all the wonderful things that are happening here. I feel truly blessed to be part of this great team and wider school community and I hope to meet you all soon!
Mrs Jasmyn Rullo - Year Five Teacher
Mrs Jasmyn Rullo is excited to join our team at Mundaring Christian College. She has been a primary teacher for seven years and has spent the past five years at Ellenbrook Christian College. She is relocating her young family to live in Stoneville. Mrs Rullo helped implement the BYOD program at Ellenbrook and is passionate about integrating technology into the curriculum. She loves teaching Year 5's and enjoys getting to know each student, helping them to achieve their God-given gifts. Please say hello and introduce yourself if you see her around the school!
Mrs Eva de Bruyn - Pre- Primary Teacher
Hi, my name is Eva de Bruyn and I am looking forward to teaching Pre-Primary in 2018. Working in an Early Childhood classroom is my passion and I love seeing children make new discoveries about their world, themselves and their creator. I am excited that at MCC, the environment is well set-up for enabling students to learn through tactile experiences in nature as well as using ideas that stimulate and provoke questions about the world around us.
I have been a teacher for 14 years and have juggled this with raising my 4 children. I have been married for 19 years and my surname may be familiar to some as my husband was a teacher at MCC for 9 years from 2004-2012. My husband and I have co-ordinated the Kids@Church program and currently worship at the Christian Reformed Church of Gosnells and consider one of the greatest challenges we face as parents is having our children grow and develop in a positive loving community. I look forward to partnering with families at Mundaring Christian College to work toward this next year.
