Mackay Christian College’s approach to the Middle Years of learning provides a safe, caring environment and a smooth transition from Primary to Secondary Education. As well as studying a carefully planned core curriculum, Years 6 and 7 begin to experience some of the practically based secondary subjects such as Industrial Arts, Home Economics and Visual Art. These are added to the specialist subjects of Music, Physical Education and Information Technology which were introduced in the Junior Years.
As students move into Year 8, they add a broad range of experiences in a variety of subjects, to their core. These subjects form the base for elective choices, which give students an opportunity to study a few subjects in greater depth in preparation for their transition into the Senior Years.
The objectives of the Middle Years are supported by student-led chapels, specialist teachers, information technology, an excellent academic program, a great sports program, camps, excursions, instrumental music and extracurricular activities.
