Exhibitions of Learning are a major feature of our Learning Program - this month we are showcasing our Term 3 2017 Exhibition for Early and Primary Years


Mark Oliphant College B-12 (MOC) is located in Munno Para. The college provides education and care (occasional and out of school hours) for children and young people in purpose built facilities on one site. The goal is the seamless provision of outstanding services to the children, young people and their families who attend our school

Featured Video

Mark Oliphant College (MOC) uses media in all aspects of schooling, including curriculum, creativity, communication and celebration. Videos can also be accessed from all our internal pages. The featured video changes regularly and celebrates one of those aspects. OUR CURRENT VIDEO IS A "MOC"UMENTARY ON THE LATEST MY/SY EXHIBITION OF LEARNING. THE PURPOSE OF THE VID WAS TO DEMONSTRATE PBL@MOC.

Our Schools

Mark Oliphant College is South Australia’s first purpose built facility combining care, preschool, junior primary, primary and secondary education. Our children and young people belong to smaller more personalised sub-schools within the college. The sub-schools are the - Early Years (Birth to Year 2)
, Primary Years (Years 3 to 6)
, Middle Years (Years 7 to 9)
 and Senior Years (Years 10 to 12)

. Whilst all sub-schools share the same college principles, each is different in ways that support the age and developmental needs of their students.

Our Curriculum

Our mission is to “MAKE LEARNING BETTER” for all in this digital age to enable the development of high achieving students and staff. We do that through our "LESS IS MORE" learning design which encompasses explicit teaching of core curriculum complemented with engaging project based learning.
Teachers work in only one sub-school. They work with smaller numbers of students enabling greater personalisation, engagement and differentiation. Students have more time on fewer subjects such that work is covered to a greater depth. This approach is integrated with learning experiences that are personalized, relevant  and produce authentic product, which they exhibit to their parents, peers and teachers.

For Our Families

We are committed to developing effective ways to collaborate with members of our community to improve the learning experiences and outcomes of our children and young people. This section of our website outlines information for our families and how we can work together to improve these outcomes for all our students.

Mutual Obligations

There are mutual obligations between Mark Oliphant College B-12  and our student / parent community. We have high expectations of our students and we will provide as many supports as possible including a free 1:1 digital learning program. We therefore have significant expectations of our students and parents across all areas of school life.
