Family Support

Uniform assistance

If you need assistance with uniform then the Student Services team can assist you. We can access State Schools Relief who are a charitable organisation that assists Victorian government school students who are experiencing financial disadvantage because of short-term crisis or long-term chronic need.

Uniform bank – MEC has a uniform bank that is open to all students and families. Second-hand uniform is available to purchase, and uniform is available to loan in the event of a crisis, or until your own uniform can be purchased.

Breakfast program

Breakfast Program- The Student Services team run the Breakfast Program at MEC.  Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and sets students up for success. The program provides a nutritional breakfast for all students three days per week – Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8.15am-8.50pm in Wareek.

  • school camps or trips
