Step 4 – What happens next?

When the College receives your complete application, the Enrolment Officer will check for available places in the Year Level you have requested.  If a place is not available, the Enrolment Officer will notify you of this and you can decide if you would like to be placed on our waiting list for notification as soon as a place becomes available. When an available place has been identified for possible enrolment,  the Enrolment Officer will commence the following process:

For students entering Prep – A Prep Assessment appointment will be organised.  Your child will  spend approximately 20 minutes interacting with one of our highly qualified and experienced Prep Teachers.

For students entering Year 1 to Year 5 – A suitable time for our Junior School Diagnostic Reading Assessment will be organised.  Your child will  spend approximately 30 minutes interacting with one of our highly trained DRA Teachers.  DRA is one of the indicators we use which allows us to provide the best learning environment for your child.   It will also help us to identify if Mackay Christian College is able to provide for your child’s educational needs with our current staffing & resources. Once the Prep Assessment or Junior School Testing has occurred, your child’s enrolment application will be forwarded to the Enrolment Committee. The Enrolment Officer will notify you of the decision of the Enrolment Committee as soon as possible.  If your child’s enrolment application is successful, the Enrolment Officer will confirm this with you in writing.  Your successful application will then be passed on to the Principal’s Assistant who will discuss a suitable time with you to attend an Enrolment Interview with the Principal or his representative.  Once this interview has taken place, your child will be able to commence their Learning Journey with Mackay Christian College.  Students will be placed in a Class and given a House Family Group.  To read more about our House Family Groups, please visit our House Family Groups page.

For students entering Year 6 to Year 12 – Your child’s enrolment application will be forwarded to the Enrolment Committee. The Enrolment Officer will notify you of the decision of the Enrolment Committee as soon as possible.  If your child’s enrolment application is successful, the Enrolment Officer will confirm this with you in writing.  Your successful application will then be passed on to the Principal’s Assistant who will discuss a suitable time with you to attend an Enrolment Interview with the Principal or his representative.  Once this interview has taken place, your child will be able to commence their Learning Journey with Mackay Christian College. Students in Year 6 will be placed in a Class and a House Family Group.  Students in Year 7-10 will be placed in a Core Group and a House Family Group.  Students in Year 11 & 12 will be placed in a House Family Group.  To read more about our House Family Groups, please visit our House Family Groups page.

Step 6 – Commencing the MCC Learning Journey

When your child arrives to commence their first day at Mackay Christian College, they will be met by our friendly Office Staff at either of our Campuses.  Students entering Prep to Year 6 will be informed of their new class and will be directed to their classroom to meet with their new teacher and their new classmates.  Their new teacher will make sure they have a buddy for the day to show them around and to help them learn the rules. Students in Year 7 to Year 12 will wait in the College Office to be greeted by the Learning Pathways Coordinator.  They will discuss their timetable and for the older students, their possible career pathways and objectives.  Parents are welcome to sit in on these discussions if they would like.  Students will then be given a buddy for the day to ensure they find their way to their classes and to help them to become accustomed to life at MCC.
