Learning

Overview

The curriculum at MECS is Christ-centred, and child-orientated.

Christ-centred means that we see all of life as part of God’s Kingdom. Our students are learning for understanding and service, with the goal of responsive action. This means that while the curriculum covers all elements of the Australian curriculum, it is rewritten and taught from the premise that Christ is Lord of all of life. Students are taught to look at everything they are learning and participating in, through a biblical worldview, or ‘Christian lenses’. MECS teachers undertake further studies through the National Institute of Christian Education to equip them to present their curriculum from a Christian perspective.

Child-orientated means that we recognise that each student is unique, wonderfully created and an image bearer of Christ. Curriculum is not only about what is taught, it is also about who we teach, and the set of unique skills, abilities and life experiences that each student has. It is our goal to assist each student in reaching their God-given potential and prepare them for a life of discipleship and work in God’s Kingdom, in such a way that reflects their learning style, abilities and individual needs.

Student Leaders

Student Leaders are students who display leadership gifts and who set a good example to others. There are a variety of student leadership opportunities at MECS. All student leaders are expected to be role models within the community and each position requires a commitment to completing a variety of tasks and attending required training activities.
