The Wellbeing Committee has been hard at work preparing a Valentine's Day surprise for the whole school.
For the past week members from the Wellbeing Committee have been in the art room working to bring a little joy and sweetness to the Mercy community.
Special messages were delivered around the school to both students and staff to show that Valentine's Day isn't only about romance, it’s also about the gift of giving.
Our College community has today observed an important day in the Liturgical calendar, Ash Wednesday. The morning commenced with a Prayer Liturgy and Distribution of the Ashes. As part of the liturgy, which is predominantly student led, Mrs Jeanette Refalo, shared a reflection on the Gospel about the true importance of Lent.
2017 saw a change in the way Academic Awards were presented to students, with the formal Awards Evening in November becoming an event exclusive to Year 10. This afforded the opportunity to collate results based on the full academic year with which to determine awards for the remaining cohorts, thus, with great privilege, House Coordinators presented students deserving of Academic Awards for their effort and results for the 2017 academic year.
Our Opening College Mass was recently celebrated. During which the Year 10 College Leaders were acknowledged and presented with their Leadership badges and Senior ties. It was wonderful celebration with Father Don White presiding over the mass, and many invited guests, parents and friends joining students and staff.
