Our staff plan their lessons thoroughly to ensure that your children are continually progressing and adding to their knowledge. Hopefully, your children come home and share the learning that they have done each day. As MCC staff, we are in the blessed position of being able to see how the children progress from the beginning of their formal learning in Prep to the end of their primary learning in Year 6. We get to see how that learning changes and advances over these seven years.

Here is a snapshot to show you the exciting growth in learning between a Prep student and a Year 6 student:
