Research has shown that what parents look for first, when choosing a school for their children, is that their children will be safe and feel loved and cared for. Of course, as parents, we also want to know that our children will have the very best possible opportunities to reach their full potential academically, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Choosing the right school for yourself or your family is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.
The students and staff here at Mackay Christian College will tell you that our vision is “becoming all God wants us to be”. We are focussed on identifying the unique gifts of each individual and helping to create the best life pathways for them. In our society there are some foundational learnings which every student should acquire. Every student should learn to read. They should be able to spell, perform basic arithmetic, and write with accuracy. They should learn to value their unique gifts. Students should be able to interact with modern technology. They should experience success and learn what they need to be able to interact with modern technology. They should experience success and learn what they need to be able to travel on their chosen pathway – whether it be to pursue further study or a career.
Above all students should feel cared for, safe, valued, and loved.
These foundational learnings are what we excel in at Mackay Christian College. As a Christian school we do all of these things within a Christian values perspective. The College values are CLEAR – Christlikeness, Learning, Excellence, Attitude and Respect. We hope that our students will learn the value of a personal relationship with Christ as they follow the pathway we create together.
