Why does the College want to give Family Assistance?
Mackay Christian College Family Assistance is a response to the rapid increase in the cost of living we have experienced in Mackay – especially in the cost of housing. These increases have meant that some people who want to give an MCC opportunity for their children have not been able to do so. The message that Mackay Christian College will help people if they have a financial need is a message we know is well understood inside the College community. We want to get that message out to the rest of Mackay.
