On Wednesday night the Year 10’s celebrated their time with us here at the College by attending the semi-formal. All students were in great spirits and the night was a fitting event to culminate their three years at our college.
Mercy College Vinnies Committee collected approximately 100 hampers to give to St Vincent de Paul. Mr Frank Gilbert and Vaughan McCall accepted the donation.The committee also held a Toblerone raffle which raised $250 that has also been donated to the Vinnies Christmas appeal.
This month, Mercy College Mackay was present at the National Schools Futsal Competition Brisbane. The U15 boys teams can be immensly proud of their efforts and the way they have represented the College. Though results didn’t go our way, the amount of improvement, competition and sportsmanship displayed by this team was astounding. As a team, they learnt how powerful teamwork is, how important supporting each other is and that there are far more important things to experience than winning. It has capped off a fantastic year for futsal for the school. All students involved in fustal this year deserve to be commended for their participation.
There are so many opportunities in our everyday lives to show kindness and Christmas is a beautiful time to refresh our kindness activities. So for the last 3 weeks of this school year, the Student Wellbeing Committee asked staff and students “How much kindness can you sprinkle around?”
Kindness Advent Calendars were distributed and displayed in every Homeroom, as well as in staff areas. Each day students and staff were able to choose something from the calendar that could be done to show kindness to another.
‘Kindness costs nothing’, was the message sent out across the College.
