Camps are an integral part of the school experience at Mundaring Christian College. Students begin to experience camps at MCC from Year 4 upwards.
The aims of the camps include:
- To provide an opportunity for students to try new challenges in a supportive environment
- To help build character traits such as self-esteem, resilience, leadership, perseverance, cooperation and leadership
- To take the curriculum out of the classroom with external activities that support classroom programs and goals
- To enhance opportunities for teambuilding and recognise the skills and talents of others.
Year 6 Eastern States Trip
The Eastern States Trip has become a highlight for the Year 6 students at Mundaring Christian College, with students enjoying many wonderful experiences and learning in ways that the classroom cannot facilitate. The trip evolved from the long-standing tradition within all SCEA schools to establish strong civics and citizenship within our students. The Australian Government supports this teaching program by partially funding students to visit our capital city.
Linked to classroom learning throughout the year, students explore Australia's history, including political, cultural and key historical events. The College considers this annual trip an important aspect of the final year within primary school as the trip provides students with an opportunity to develop the independence necessary for secondary school, consolidate key learning from the curriculum and reinforce the value of national pride.
