The MCC offers students the opportunity to succeed in positive learning outcomes, with the support from the MCC Staff:

The MCC provides Personalised Learning Plans (PLP), Behaviour Management Plans (BMP), and Health Care Plans (HCP) where necessary.

In the MCC we work towards the students becoming independent learners. We encourage students to fill in the homework booking sheet to plan their time and their assignments. We support students with their homework and assignments, providing laptops and printers for in school use. These study times can be also used for homework and is booked in by the student with the MCC staff. Extension of time can be given to students for assignments where a concerted effort has been made.

Appropriate social skills for the classroom and in society are taught, encouraged and modeled during roll call and the school day. The students participate in educational games, this has proven to be beneficial, for their interaction with their peers.
