Learning at the Secondary school continues the partnership with parents to support students in their transition from childhood to adulthood. Through this adolescent learning phase, we encourage students to make choices about their futures, and to voice their preferences through reasoned and justified decision-making.
Classes are vibrant learning environments where all students (and teachers) are supported and encouraged to be life long learners and pursue personal excellence. Learning for deep understanding, learning to be more creative problem solvers and learning as a community, are at the heart of all learning experiences provided.
In addition to the core subjects of Maths, English, Science and HASS, students are able to choose from a broad range of options to fulfil the Arts, Health and Physical Education and Technologies subject requirements. From food technology to applied arts, wood, metal and design, computer studies and robotics and music appreciation and expression, our teachers in these areas are artisans and craftspeople in their own right and excited to share their skills with their students.
Through the curriculum content offered, students are provided every opportunity to understand their place in a global context so they may become both responsible and mature Australian citizens, and operate effectively as members of a global community too. Hands on experiences in exploring our relationship with Asia, focusing on the experience of Aboriginal Australians and investigating sustainability are in keeping with the strands of the Australian Curriculum.
Our senior secondary program for Year 10 - Year 12 caters to all student learning directions including ATAR courses, General courses, Vocational Education and Training or Trade Training, with equal respect and encouragement for excellence in the pathways students choose. Our perspective on senior secondary learning is to provide students with capabilities and resources for well into their future, not simply for the choices they make immediately after graduation.
Mundaring Christian College is delighted to offer a number of academic scholarships for current and future students entering Year 7 and Year 10 in 2019.
The Year 7 scholarship offers partial (25%) remission from academic tuition fees for three years until the end of Year 9. The Year 10 scholarship offers half (50%) remission from academic tuition fees for three years until the end of Year Twelve.
The awarding of scholarships is determined by results of the ACER Scholarship examination, a series of academic ability tests used by Independent schools to select scholarship recipients, followed by a successful interview.
Applications for the scholarships close at 10.00pm, Thursday 22 February 2018. The tests will be run at the MCC Secondary Campus on Saturday 10 March 2018. A $93.00 fee, payable to ACER, applies.
The number of scholarships is limited, so register your child today at http://scholarships.acer.edu.au/intro/1393 (select Level One to sit the Year 7 tests and Level Two for the Year Ten test).
Our Secondary Campus, opened in 2016, is located on a beautiful 110-acre block in Parkerville.
The facilities have been designed to inspire a collaborative and modern learning approach, with open plan learning environments and seamless integration of communication technologies.
Inside, the design of the learning areas incorporates findings based on research by Stephen Heppell, a world leader in learning space design. Agile classes layouts allow for the whole class, group and individual learning and flexible learning areas, including quiet nooks.
In addition to (conference and lecture style) general learning areas, stage one of the new campus includes:
- Industrial kitchens for food technology
- State of the art science labs
- Media and informations & communications technologies lab
- Design and technology workshop
- Ceramics and sculpture studio including a kiln for ceramics and pottery
- Fine arts studio
- Welding bay (and forge to be delivered in the near future)
Outside, there are mountain bike and cross country fitness tracks, an outdoor fitness obstacle course, as well as beach volleyball, basketball and netball courts for students to enjoy.
Student wellbeing has also been at the forefront of design, with facilities at the school designed to deliver practical benefits to every individual on campus.
The extraordinary campus provides open spaces to provide a beautiful and creative learning environment for students that will connect them to nature and their local environment.
