Mernda Hills Christian College achieves exceptional academic achievements year after year as a consequence of our students' hard work and dedication throughout the school year. We blend academics with sports, music, performances, competitions, and community initiatives that allow each student to celebrate their unique interests and talents while growing self-esteem and confidence.
At Mernda Hills, sports play a major role in daily life and are a great way to build resilience, social skills, and overall well-being. Primary children take part in physical education and sports classes with a specialist teacher each week. Senior primary students also participate in interschool sports competitions within our Adventist Schools system, and with local schools in our area.
Secondary students have access to defined sporting activities in two different areas. The academic study of sports, health and physical exercise is handled by specialist sports teachers. The second component revolves around a weekly sports program giving students the opportunity to participate in a variety of team and individual recreational pursuits. In addition to this, the Secondary School also competes in the ASV sports network and is a member of School Sports Victoria, where students compete against a range of schools in the local region in a large range of sports.
Learning an instrument or getting involved in our chapel and production programs can broaden your horizons, develop social and emotional skills, build self-esteem and be a lot of fun in the process.
Developing performance skills is an important part of learning music and our students are given many opportunities in this area. During the year a variety of small and large school-based concerts, school assemblies, celebration services and chapels provide opportunities for performance.
Students may also choose to be involved in our optional instrumental music tuition program.
