Handbook

Please find attached our Parent Handbook including Welcome Letter. The handbook details many of the fundamentals of “life at MOC” including fees and school information.

Note there are two Materials and Services Charges- one primary and the other secondary. The secondary fees also have included specific subject charges for some choice subjects in Years 10 – 12. Preschool fees are set at $60 per term.

Occasional Care

For information on Occasional Care times and fees, please contact the Children’s Centre.

Canteen

The canteen is managed by Alliance Catering and complies with healthy eating guidelines.

The canteen menu changes twice per year- the changes reflect both summer and winter appropriate menus.

Students may order lunches. The canteen accepts cash and also has Electronic Card facilities, including PayWave.

There are two distinct canteen serveries  – Middle and Senior Years students enter via one side entrance and Early and Primary Years students via the another.

Uniform

Wearing of the Mark Oliphant College uniform is compulsory for all students in Reception through to Year 12.

School uniform is important because: –

  • we know immediately if there are strangers on campus.
  • the colour coding ensures that we know to which sub school a student belongs.
  • it encourages student pride in themselves and their school.

The Governing Council has endorsed our Uniform Policy.

By attending this school, students are agreeing to wear school uniform, and parents are agreeing to ensure that their students have access to the school uniform.

New Uniform Shop details are being finalised and will be updated soon.
