About Junior School

It is important to have a good start in life, and our Junior School is committed to providing each student with a strong foundation on which to build a love of learning.

The College rests on an extensive site on the northern edge of Cundletown nestled within the Mid Coast region of NSW.

The existing College layout forms part of an ambitious master plan for future expansion. Our facilities are fitted with modern technologies and provide comfortable learning environments. Resources are ever changing to complement the curriculum and expand the learning experience.

Our Infants area boasts two beautiful landscaped and fully fenced, shaded playgrounds to facilitate safe play sessions. The playground areas encourage outdoor learning and sensory play for our younger students.

Junior school students have ample space to run and play during free time with the Junior Oval available at recess and lunch.

Junior school structure

MVAC has grown to facilitate two classes in each year group from 2024, with approximately 24 – 28 students in each class. Additional teaching aides and specialist teachers assist with classes on a regular basis.

The Junior School can be divided into two groups:

  • Infants – K – 2
  • Juniors – 3 – 6

MVAC offers a rich and diverse extracurricular program for our junior School students providing a range of activities for them to explore and discover.

These include numerous activities within the areas of agriculture, performing arts, clubs and outdoor camps.

Our students are encouraged to participate in sporting activities throughout the year including our annual Swimming, Athletics and Cross-Country Carnivals, which students from the age of 8 can participate in.

For our Infants, we aim to provide a tailored non-competitive carnival specific for their age and development.

Pastoral Care

Spiritual and personal development plays an important role within the College at every level. We are an Anglican school, and the Christian ethos underpins our teaching and pastoral care.

Pastoral Care sessions allow our teachers a chance to connect with students in small groups and discuss topics such as goal setting and personal evaluation. Students are also encouraged to approach their teachers or the College Chaplain at any time if they feel they are in need of personal or spiritual support.

The involvement of the local Anglican clergy, including our own dedicated College Chaplain, allows us to run regular Chapel services as part of our Junior School assembly.

Students take part in a whole-school Eucharist and Holy Communion once per semester, providing a more formal experience in worship.

Lastly, as part of Newcastle Anglican we participate in a Schools Celebration Day each year held at Christ Church Cathedral in Newcastle. This provides a valuable opportunity for MVAC students to interact with peers from across the Newcastle Anglican Diocese.
