Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD)

Every year, all schools in Australia participate in the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD). Information provided about students to the Australian Government for the NCCD includes year of schooling, category of disability: physical, cognitive, sensory or social/emotional, level of adjustment provided: support provided within quality differentiated teaching practice, supplementary, substantial or extensive.

This information assists schools to formally recognise the supports and adjustments provided to students with disability in schools, consider how they can strengthen the support of students with disability in schools, develop shared practices so that they can review their learning programs in order to improve educational outcomes for students with disability.

The NCCD will have no direct impact on your child and your child will not be involved in any testing process. The school will provide data to the Australian Government in such a way that no individual student will be able to be identified – the privacy and confidentiality of all students is ensured. All information is protected by privacy laws that regulate the collection, storage and disclosure of personal information. Click here for further information about the NCCD and please contact the College for any questions.

Year 10 Immunisation

Melton City Council’s Immunisation team will be visiting Melton Christian College to immunise the Year 10 students against Meningococcal. The immunisation session is scheduled at the school on Friday, August 12. Please be reassured the immunisation team are taking additional steps to ensure everybody’s safety, as per current DHHS requirements. Each Year 10 students will receive a Year 10 Secondary School Immunisation Program consent card/information booklet, which contains information about the vaccine available for your child. It is important to return the completed consent card to the College Reception before Wednesday, August 11, whether you are consenting or not consenting to the program. More information can be obtained from  www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au, www.immunehero.health.vic.gov.au or www.health.vic.gov.au.

Please contact Melton City Council’s Immunisation team on (03) 9747 7200 if you have any questions.

Community Events Team

At MCC, we run a number of Community Events each year. If you are a parent with event experience, works well in a team, and loves the buzz of a well-run event, then we would love to hear from you! Our next event is our Father’s Day Celebration on Wednesday 31/08/22. Email Louise: [email protected]

Parking Reminders

As a courtesy to our local neighborhood, please avoid parking on the grass nature strips around the College during the wet weather. This causes the soft grassed areas to become muddy and damages the grass.

Also, we urge you not to drive through the staff entry to the back of the school to drop off students. Car access and parking from the Auditorium up to the back of the school is reserved for staff only. We strongly encourage you to use appropriate parking areas and drop off/pick up zones when visiting the College. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

Lost Property

If you are missing an item of clothing or equipment, please take the time to check Lost Property before the end of this term. Any uniform which has not been collected before the term break will be disposed of. In order to have your clothes returned to you, it is advised that all items are labelled clearly. Also, please ensure the name in your uniform is yours and doesn’t belong to someone else.

Helpful Road Safety Reminders 

  • When crossing the road in the carpark it is important that your child knows they are to use the zebra crossing – parents, please model this for our children. 
  • If your child crosses a road outside of the school grounds on their way to or from school, remind them that they must look both ways for cars and use a zebra crossing to cross safely. 
  • Parents are not to stop their cars on the zebra crossing in the car park as children need constant access to these so that they can enter the school safely. 
  • Please do not park in the drop off zone or on the nature strips of our neighbours. 

 Thank you for your continuing cooperation.
