Sports Academy

Medowie Christian School is passionate about encouraging all our students to find their gifting’s and enhance their sporting potential. We provide an excellent PDHPE/Sports program from P-12. In 2019, MCS joined the to 'Hunter Region Independent Schools' (HRIS) for its sporting events. You can check out their webpage: https://www.hris.org.au

While all our zone teams have coaching opportunities, we have selected a number of areas in which our students have the ability to receive extra support with professional coaches. These programs are placed within our 'Sports Academy' program.
