Meet our Principal


It is a privilege to serve the MDCS community of families, students and staff, first as Deputy Principal and VCE Coordinator since the beginning of 2012, and now as Principal. As a school we have much to celebrate and thank God for. Our families often comment on how much they love the beautiful surroundings in which their children get to learn and the way that teachers regard the wellbeing of their ‘whole’ child, not just their academic learning. I am also delighted to hear how much they as parents feel welcome and encouraged to be involved.


Our parents are grateful to have found a place where their children will be taught from a Christian perspective that seeks to mirror the Biblical truths and values modelled to their children at home. We recognize and understand the responsibility that is entrusted to us by families as we partner with parents in the nurturing and education of their children. As a whole staff team we take this very seriously.


If you are exploring our website with a view to enrolment, I encourage you to contact us to arrange a personal tour of the school grounds and if you know of families who already belong to our community, chat to them about their MDCS experiences.


Whether you are already involved at MDCS or interested in learning more about us, I hope that you find our website informative, helpful and engaging. I look forward to meeting with you and sharing what it means to be part of the MDCS community.


Yours in Christ,

Jason Riding
