Sports Academy

Medowie Christian School (MCS) is committed to encourage all students find their passion and gifting in their sporting ability. MCS has an excellent PDHPE/Sports program from K-12. Our pathway to All School events is through THACCCSA, CSSA then CIS. With Swimming, Cross Country and Athletics, we also enter students into Touch Football, Soccer, Futsal, Netball, Basketball, Triathlon and Cricket.

MCS is also proud to have their 'Sports Academy', which is a multi-faceted approach in helping support our students reach their full potential.
