Discovery Centre

The architecturally designed Discovery Centre is strategically located at the heart of Hillcrest Christian College and aims to encourage lifelong learning, supporting and promoting the varied activities that occur across the College. It houses two main book collections along with a vast range of other print, audio and visual resources.

Multipurpose Centre

The Hillcrest Multipurpose Centre (MPC) is an impressive structure. The complex includes a double basketball court, theatrical stage, weights room, offices, medical room and separate change rooms and toilet facilities. The upper mezzanine floor, with a superb view of the ovals, incorporates a fitness centre and an assembly area.

Early Learning Centre

A unique feature of the ELC is the opportunity for children to start and finish their education with the same friends, as they continue through Hillcrest Christian College and beyond.  Our centre consists of two very spacious air conditioned classrooms with a beautiful outlook onto a landscaped play area. Natural light is a feature of each room and wide verandahs provide a protected area for children to use creatively regardless of the weather conditions.

Main Administration

The Administration Office is home to the Head of College, Executive Principal and Corporate Services staff. This building will also be the first point of contact for all visitors to the College.

Sciences

The five Science laboratories supply the Secondary School with an even greater depth of subject offerings. In addition to core Science subjects, such as Chemistry, Biology and Physics, broader offerings of Robotics and Forensic Science are also available.

Visual Arts

The Creative Arts facility is a hub of creativity with students being able to express their talents through many diverse mediums. From the gallery displaying student artworks through to the many studios and specialist rooms designed for everything from painting, ceramics, or media and computer design, it is indeed a centre of creativity.

Food Technology Centre

A state of the art facility that contains the best of equipment ensures our students are learning everything there is to know about food, from its production through to preparation and presentation. It is designed so that learning spaces can become café spaces.

Crest Cafe

The MPC is also home to Crest Café. The Crest Café caters for the College canteen requirements. The menu is specifically selected to offer healthy choices with the freshest ingredients. Open from 8:30am each school day it is a popular and important part of our College.

Performing Arts Theatre

The Performing Arts Theatre is one of the newest buildings in the College. The theatre is able to hold up to 500 guests and includes facilities such as instrumental teaching rooms, orchestra practice room, and a fully appointed stage and theatre area with orchestra pit.

Design and Technology

The Technology course allows students to use the technological design process to make projects relevant to students likes and current trends. Students therefore apply what they learn in theoretical subjects in a practical way.

Chaplaincy Services Centre

This is a vital hub of College life, with a student recreation space, small group rooms and the offices of our three fulltime chaplains. Part of the homestead facility houses the second hand uniform shop.

Equestrian Centre

Not many schools have an $2m Equestrian Trade Training Centre with its undercover yards and industry standard stable facilities housing over 40 College-owned horses. Then there are the 3 arenas, 10 acre polo field, and 25 acre environmental wetlands to ride in. No wonder it is the centre of so many activities and local and state competitions.

Environmental Centre

Land has been specifically set aside for use by the Colleges for activities such as Environmental Studies, adjacent to the Cardinia Creek. The aim is to restore and revegetate the wildlife corridor along this watercourse. Classes in all sections of the College utilise this unique environment to enrich their subject learning in a number of curriculum areas.
