MCS Sport Programs

Medowie Christian School is committed to encouraging all students to find their passion and gifts to enhance their sporting ability.
We are always looking to offer unique experiences for our students. Through sport, we endeavour to build each student’s physical, social, cognitive, emotional and spiritual skills.
We believe that by learning these skills and attitudes, our students will gain the confidence and capability to join in a variety of activities – enabling them to live active, healthy and fulfilling lives.
