Wellbeing & Support Services
MCC is committed to working closely with students, parents/caregivers and members of the community to develop healthy, happy, successful and productive individuals. We play a pivotal role in connecting character development in children and young people to individual and collective wellbeing which, in the longer term, will shape the values and attitudes of our society. We also nurture professional relationships that are safe, respectful and supportive, and which help students to reach their full potential.
The school fosters strong connections with counselling and wellbeing support services that provide essential expertise. Parents/caregivers are also able to self-refer to these agencies using the following links:
