MECS does not have a compulsory uniform, but instead has a Guided Dress Policy. This does not mean ‘free dress’. 

MECS believes that not having a uniform affirms each child’s uniqueness and encourages them to learn responsibility with their choice of clothing.

We recognise that in a communal setting, there has to be many ways in which there are uniform expectations for students. As such our ‘no uniform’ approach is not a plug for individualism. The school still has many common expectations for dress. We enforce the guided dress policy and guide students in good decision making in what they choose to wear.

At Mount Evelyn Christian School (MECS), we welcome applications for enrolment from all families seeking a holistic, Christ-centred education for their children.
