Principal's Welcome

Mr. Simon Herd

Welcome to Medowie Christian School, Port Stephen’s hidden gem. MCS is an innovative learning community, where every child is known and presented with opportunities to grow individually, all within a caring environment. Our vision is to grow compassionate and courageous global citizens with truth and wisdom in Christ. Our goal is that every student will develop confidence and resilience and that they are well equipped to make a difference in an ever changing world. We would consider it an immense privilege to partner with you on the educational journey of your child.

At Medowie Christian School we offer a comprehensive educational learning community that meets the needs of students from Kindergarten through to Year 12 on one site. We see every student as a unique diamond which requires skillful attention and appreciation. Producing a polished diamond that fulfills all that it was created to be involves a strong partnership between home and school. At Medowie Christian School we have an outstanding team of teachers and facilities that provide the platform to develop vibrant thinkers who are entrepreneurial and successful beyond the school fence.

We are committed to providing extensive subject choices for all students. In 2015, 37 students sat the HSC examinations in 13 courses that were offered for study. We are committed to providing opportunities comparable to much larger schools, whilst providing our students with small classes with individual attention and innovative learning schedules. These combine to provide a head start on their chosen career or university journey.

The opportunities that are presented to our students are as unique as they are broad. From our new venture into robotics, to chess tournaments, public speaking, sports gala days, biathlon and triathlon events, science engineering challenges and national mathematics competitions. Secondary students participate in core subjects, as well as many specialised subjects such as Agriculture, Industrial Technology, PDHPE, Food Technology and the Performing Arts, to name a few. Our teachers use the latest resources, all in a technology rich environment. Each primary student has access to class iPads and every secondary student even has their own laptop computer.

Ultimately, every parent wants their child to feel safe, enjoy their experience at school and reach their full potential. At Medowie Christian School every student in the school is valued and we recognise that social, emotional and spiritual developments are as important as academic. We offer a supportive and caring environment where every student’s God given gifts and talents are recognised and developed. Our desire is that every student in our school would dare to dream big and that together we can see their dream become a reality. Our discipline and care management systems are developed from a position of every student being ‘at promise’ where they are nurtured to succeed and grow in their strengths.

Our staff, students and families love their school. I invite and encourage you to visit us to see and experience it for yourself.
