Congratulations to the amazing group of Mercy College students who performed at the opening ceremony of the North Queensland Games. What a wonderful opportunity to perform for our community. Thank you to Mrs Camilleri, Mr McClelland and Mr Bauer for assisting me with the evening. Thank you also to all the parents who supported this wonderful event.
Mercy College held its annual Enrolment Evening on Tuesday May 1. Entertainment was bountiful in the pavilion with singing, dancing and music groups performing throughout the evening. Classrooms were open to attendees, enticed in with fabulous displays and activities. The treasure hunt was as popular as ever with the kids and some great prizes were awarded during the parent information session at the end of the night. Mercy College looks forward to educating the 2019 year 7 students. What a fine bunch they were.
On 23, 26 & 27 April, four boys and two girls’ teams represented Mercy College in the Whitsunday Schools Futsal Competition. Students spent the day at Candlestick Park playing against teams from other schools, with some teams playing a total of seven games in one day! It was a tremendous effort from all students who participated and showed their excellent conduct on and off the field.
Their drive and determination has led to a great outcome for Mercy futsal. We finished as follows: U13 boys Champions, U14 boys Runners-up, U15 boys Runners-up, U16 boys Runners-up, U14 Girls Champions and U16 Girls Runners-up. Our two Age Champion teams have possibly qualified for the National Schools competition in November in Brisbane.
