The College has documented policies that guide our practice.  Each policy is reviewed tri-annually by the College Council to ensure it is still meeting our needs and is in line with the direction of the Department of Education.  A number of these policy reviews will involve parent and/or student feedback. When this is required information about the process and how to be involved will be made available through the College Newsletter.

The Child Safe Standards have changed on 1 July 2022. Guidance and resources have been developed to support schools transition to the new Standards. The school environment is not limited to the College campus; it includes all venues where school events take place (excursion, event, sport and camp venues) and virtual environments such as the College intranet and email.

The Child Safe Standards and related policies outline our guidelines, strategies, processes and resources for implementation.

A summary of all policies for parents and students is available below:


We want students to grow into their identities and become the best versions of themselves.

We display confidence, energy and fresh thinking, sharing our passion for our subjects.

We provide a stimulating school environment where students can learn, live, love and grow.

My sons are valued and respected at Mount Eliza Secondary College. My sons' educational experience of engaging learning at the college is exemplary, which encourages them to academically grow, while ensuring that their secondary school education is top class.

We have been parents of MESC for over 20 years. Our youngest (and sixth) child is in year 10 this year. That alone tells you how highly we regard the school, its community and its policies. We have seen many changes at the school over the past 20 years, but the one constant is the standard of excellence MESC offers and expects in both education and wellbeing.
