We know that the school environment plays a major role in the social and emotional competence and well-being of children. Pastoral care, reflecting God’s word as well as current educational and psychological best practice, is a vital and integral part of Mundaring's offering. Our goal for pastoral care is to provide the support and encouragement that enables students to recognise and use their abilities with compassion, character and confidence in their community.
At Mundaring Christian College, honouring those that have gone before and paved the way for future generations, is important. One of the ways our College has acknowledged the pioneers who helped found our school, is to name our House Factions in their honour. We have four House Factions; ‘Dunn-Scott’, ‘Hedley’, ‘McKenzie’ and ‘Tester’. Students are encouraged to remember at each sport event, the importance of community and supporting each other. Participation is key; all students are expected to contribute to their Faction’s achievements. After each House event (Swimming Carnival, Athletics Carnival, Cross Country Carnival), the engraved Faction trophy is presented to the winning Faction.
The aim of the college Leadership Program for students in Year 7 to Year 11 is to promote the concept of influencing others positively through service, self-giving and compassionate consideration of others. Each student from every Secondary school year group is given the opportunity to be mentored to grow and develop leadership skills. Initiatives of the Leadership Program include a buddy program where older students help younger students, leading fortnightly college assemblies and opportunities to provide leadership at events such as sports days, fundraising drives and community occasions such as ANZAC Day.
Year 6 students can attend a Youth Group hosted by the school chaplain every Friday from 3.15 till 5pm, where they will learn what to expect when they join a youth group in church. Secondary school students can join the relaxed and informative Youth Group which runs every Wednesday from 3.15pm till 5pm. The group is currently studying the book of Mark.
Lead by the school sports chaplain, the college is part of the inter-churches Futsal competition and is currently the under 12 and mixed champions. The futsal program runs in the Primary school every Tuesday from 3.15pm till 5pm, and in the Secondary school every Thursday from 3.15pm till 5.15pm.
