Melbourne School introduces Melbourne Community School in St Kilda East, for all your education and learning for your childs future, We invite you to explore and learn more about the quality 21st Century education with Melbourne Community School.
Melbourne Community School (MCS) is a small, parent-run, independent primary school of up to 25 children, located in suburban Melbourne.
Formerly called Malvern Community School it was first established in 1977 by a group of parents wanting a more meaningful education for their children than seemed possible within mainstream schooling. They created a school in which primary level numeracy and literacy were taught in a friendly and relaxed environment. Although it has been widely recognised that children learn at different rates and have different learning styles, the reality of a classroom of more than 20 children can make it impossible for teachers to cater for the individual child. At Melbourne Community School our child to adult ratio makes the goal of a truly child-centred educational process a realistic one.
Steeped in history, Melbourne Community School is one of the popular school in the St Kilda East area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
