(Pre-Prep - Year 6)
Providence Campus is designed to provide a dynamic learning experience for all our Junior School students (Pre-Prep – Year 6).
The specialised facilities and beautifully landscaped grounds contribute to creating a schooling environment that encourages the personal, social and academic development of our students.
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 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.
