Mount Evelyn Christian School

Mt Evelyn Christian School

Independent Christian co-educational Kindergarten to Year 12

Children grow and flourish at Mount Evelyn Christian School within a warm and caring environment. MECS caters for your child’s entire formal education — Kindergarten to Year 12 — and prepares them for whatever step they take beyond. Students are encouraged to explore God’s world and discover their unique gifts for responding to His kingdom. With a strong community culture, families and students quickly develop a sense of belonging, and an intentional focus on partnership between home and school ensures that the whole child is nurtured and developed. Each child is encouraged to reach the full potential of their God-given gifts.

Facilities: The school is located in a 5.2-hectare bush setting at the foot of the Dandenongs. Facilities include Kindergarten, theatrette, gymnasium, rock climbing wall, library, art/craft, music and science areas, synthetic oval, natural play areas, sandpits, playgrounds, chook shed and basketball courts.

Curriculum: All MECS curriculum is written from a biblical perspective, while complying with Australian Curriculum requirements. We intentionally incorporate hands-on and out-of-classroom learning to explore God’s creation. The Primary classes (Years 1-6) are multi age in structure, promoting peer learning and catering for the diversity of learning abilities and styles. Year 9 follows a stand-alone program where the unique learning and development requirements of this age group are catered for.

In the Senior School, the prerequisite subjects for all tertiary courses in Victoria are offered along with a variety of other VCE studies. Students not planning to proceed to tertiary studies are also supported in their aspirations. Class sizes are small, with teachers committed to supporting all students that wish to attain their VCE. MECS is part of the Yarra Valley VET cluster, allowing students from Years 10-12 to participate in a wide range of VETiS programs.

Principal: Mrs Narelle Sketcher
