Important notice to students and staff: Coronavirus (COVID 19)

At Macquarie Community College (MCC) we are committed to putting our community first. With so much yet to understand about COVID-19, we wanted to take a moment to let you know about the proactive steps we are taking to ensure your safety.

With NSW Government restrictions becoming more relaxed, we are implementing Stage 2 of our phased re-opening with a gradual and safe return of students and staff for some activities that were not possible to offer via online learning.

To achieve Stage 2, we are working within a number of guidelines that will help us reduce exposure to, and transmission of, a range of illnesses, including Novel Coronavirus.

From Monday 27 July, the MCC Carlingford and MCC Chatswood campuses will be open for a small number of face to face classes in Term 3. All other campuses remain temporarily closed to the public.
