Prep - Year 6
Providence Campus is designed to provide a dynamic learning experience for all our Junior School students Prep – Year 6.
Promoting wonder, curiosity, discovery and joy, the Early Years learning environments are specifically designed to cater for the development of our youngest students.
The specialised facilities and beautifully landscaped grounds contribute to creating a schooling environment that encourages the personal, social and academic development of our students.
MCC Junior School Campus is a warm, supportive Christian community of caring teachers who seek to foster a love of learning in the early years of formal schooling and create pathways for students irrespective of their talents and abilities.
We work hard to create an environment where students, teachers and parents alike feel a strong sense of connectedness to our College and each other. Our core values are embedded across the curriculum areas where we actively seek to reveal the wonder of God’s creation and His plan for us to become all He intended us to be.
All of our learning classrooms are equipped with state of the art interactive digital screens and whiteboards to better present and engage in learning activities. Information Communications Technology (ICT) is taught from Year 5. These older students work from iPad tablets over classroom WiFi during lessons so that they are well versed in how the modern world accesses and communicates information.
We understand that students learn through movement and hands-on interaction. Students absorb information through books and socialisation with others. Although we use interactive whiteboards, iPads and computers, our students are also afforded plenty of opportunity to learn in a variety of different ways to develop their enquiring minds.
Specialist Art classes in Music, Physical Education and Information Technology add to the range of learning experiences available.
We have a fantastic library facility, which not only houses books and resources for schoolwork and pleasure, it also has board games, craft and activities which the students can use during break times. The school also offers lunchtime clubs for our students to take part in. Some of these clubs are Chess, Robotics, Lego, Homework, Drama, Choir and Art to name but a few.
Sport and Physical Activities are very important to us here at Mackay Christian College. We have sports equipment available during lunch breaks for students wanting to stay active as an addition to the Physical Education lessons they receive throughout the week. We also run sports clubs and make full use of our sports oval on Providence Campus.
We believe play is just as important to our students as learning is, and that’s why we've developed our playgrounds, incorporating natural materials, in a way that students can improve vital fine and gross motor skills which boost a child’s confidence and independence, setting them up for success later on in their academic journey. We also have large shaded areas where children can play in all weather conditions.
From the earliest years, a thorough foundation in literacy and numeracy is a central focus of learning experiences. Within the classroom and through support staff, student learning is strongly supported by enrichment opportunities and remedial teaching according to individual needs. On-going assessment of children´s progress within the classroom, supplemented by the Learning Enrichment Centre or external support agencies where needs are identified, assists in maximising learning potential.
