David Gleeson - Principal

Welcome to Melton Christian College.

In my role as Principal of this remarkable school community it is my pleasure and privilege to partner with both the staff, and the parents in the education of our students.

To those of you who are joining this College community for your children’s schooling I say; congratulations, you have made an excellent choice. Schooling is the most significant partnership that you as parents will enter on behalf of your children.

To those of you who are seeking a school for your children I suggest you contact our Registrar well in advance of your child’s start-date, because as the excellent reputation of this College continues to grow, enrolments continue to grow.

Foundation of Faith
Melton Christian College is built on a foundation of faith and the College has grown due to selfless commitment by staff and parents to the goals of Christian education. My intention as Principal, along with my staff team, is to continue building on these foundations.

In Christian schooling, Christian Faith permeates everything. Faith is not merely an addition to an excellent curriculum, in Christian schooling Faith underpins every program, every policy and every practice.

Our team of teachers is committed to excellence. Our teachers are passionate, qualified educators. Every staff member acknowledges Jesus Christ as Lord over all of life, and we know our God-given responsibility is to guide young people towards true success through the development of a healthy view of their value within contemporary society. At Melton Christian College there is a wonderful alliance as staff and parents partner together for the children’s schooling.

Strength through Authenticity and Excellence
Our College is strengthened by authenticity and alignment between the Principal and the College Council as we plan together to fulfil the College’s vision for excellence in Christian education. The College Council members have a deep commitment to ongoing success in the college's future, and they and I are committed to partnering together for the enrichment and nurture of the College community.

Our Heads of School, Mr Derek Bendall (Secondary) and Mrs Jodie Vamplew (Primary) are creative, committed Christian educators who have the confidence and dedication of their staff teams. Mr Neville Findlay, the College Business Manager, is an executive with much experience and rich insights. Clearly the strength of this College is in its staff and their commitment to excellence.

We confidently anticipate ongoing strengthening of this school’s already excellent reputation as students and staff work together in the pursuit of high quality teaching and learning.
