Teaching and Learning

Our Senior School caters for students in Year 7 to Year 12 and is large enough to provide a wide range of courses but small enough to know students individually.

Our teaching staff are selected for their high standards of training, teaching ability, their personal Christian faith and are known for going above and beyond to support students in their learning. We also offer free and regular tutoring sessions at our Tutor Centre to help students study and prepare for exams.

You are welcome to come see the College and can book a tour by contacting us on 08 9583 7000 or at admin@mbc.wa.edu.au

Lower School (Years 7-10)

Our Lower School Years 7-10 provide students with core subjects to enrich their lives as well as to prepare them for choosing their pathway to university, TAFE or a vocation. The core subjects include English, Humanities, Science, Mathematics, Christian Education, the Arts, Technology and Enterprise, as well as Physical and Health Education. Students also have the option of learning a language other than English, and we currently offer French and Indonesian studies.

To learn more about the core subjects available to your child, please read our Lower School Course Booklet.

Upper School

Students entering Year 11 in our Upper School choose their pathway, either selecting courses leading to university, courses leading to TAFE or pursuing employment or entrance into a vocation college. 

Our students graduate with the self-knowledge and life-skills they need to flourish in the future career of their choosing, selected from a broad range of pathways leading to university, TAFE, apprenticeships and the workforce.

To learn more about the opportunities and options available to your child, please read our Upper School Course Booklet.

WACE Courses

We offer courses to enable our students to pursue the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE).

The WACE is awarded to Secondary Students who demonstrate a minimum standard of literacy and a minimum standard of numeracy based on the skills regarded as essential for individuals to meet the demands of everyday life and work in a knowledge‐based economy. The WACE also requires each student to complete a certain amount of units, courses and a Certificate II.

Vocational Courses

We offer a range of courses to develop and prepare students for their chosen vocation after graduation. Our Vocational Educational Training (VET) develops students work skills and competencies to better equip them for entering the workforce and/or continuing with their education and training. We also offer our Pre-apprenticeship in Schools (PAiS) program to support a transition from school to an apprenticeship where they can get real work experience by trying different jobs in various industries.

Our Work Place Learning Program (WL) is a structured out-of-school learning program that provides students with the opportunity to develop work skills, while continuing with school education.

Extra-curricular

 

We have a range of extra-curricular activities which provide quality experiences beyond the standard curriculum.

Our Study Tours enable students to travel in the accompaniment of staff within Australia and beyond its borders.

Biennially we travel to Canberra for an educational tour of our national capital and to other important locations in Sydney or Melbourne which are woven into the fabric of this country. The educational value of this tour is highly beneficial to the students as they experience firsthand some of the most important cultural, historical and political locations in our country.

There are also numerous opportunities to participate in a range of extra-curricular activities within the arts and sports. This includes our drama club Dramaramah, our biennual school musical, volleyball where selected teams travel over east each year to compete in the Schools Cup, cricket, soccer, netball and much more.
