Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

The last full week of school for 2018 is upon us, and as such, there are plenty of excursions, assemblies, end-of year activity days and class parties to keep our students busy and engaged before they head off for summer holidays.

The 2018 wrap up of MAC News will be sent out to our College community on the last day of school, which is next Monday 10th December, and this current Newsletter is full of reminders and details of all the events we have on in Week 8. I encourage you to read it carefully and note down the information that applies to your family so that you can stay up to date with all that is happening here at MAC this week.

2019 Term Dates

Registration Days 2019 - Wed 23rd & Thurs 24th January from 8am - 6pm

Road to Bethlehem at Mountain View Adventist College

It is not too late to book tickets for Road to Bethlehem, which is an opportunity to step back in time and experience what it may have been like at the very first Christmas.

During the program, you’ll journey through an interactive tour of some of the key scenes surrounding the birth of Jesus. As you wander through the streets of Jerusalem, you’ll meet Roman soldiers, shepherds and Wise Men, visit King Herod’s palace – all before coming to Bethlehem itself and finally meeting the newborn King in the manger.

Please click here to book tickets. If you’ve never been, come and check it out! Please also come to support our sister school in their ministry of sharing the birth of Jesus.

Year 12 Mission Trip

Vanuatu! Some of our Year 12 students had the opportunity to serve the community at the Fokona SDA school. Some ways in which they served were, painting the school inside and out, conducting a kid’s club, visiting the disabled in the community. The experience that these students were able to have will truly stay with them for their lives.
