The Mercy College Sports Awards night was held on Friday November 16. The night gives the Mercy College community an opportunity to acknowledge the outstanding sporting achievements of our students in 2018. Each of the 71 Mercy College sporting teams were recognised with Best and Fairest, Player’s Player and Most Improved Awards distributed for each team.
Congratulations to our Major Award winners for 2018:
Thank you to all of the students, staff, parents and officials who have contributed to sport at Mercy College in 2018. Looking forward to working with you all again in 2019.
Every year, business students in Year 10 participate in the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) Share Market Game. This year we had an exceptional achievement by Matthew Wright. Even after a difficult trading season, in a national competition Matthew had managed to come third in Queensland and 88th in the nation. This was an amazing achievement and we congratulate Matthew.
This term we saw the rise and fall of many teachers and students alike, all attempting to claim the trophy for the best Mercy chess player. We had up to 50 students competing against teachers and other members of staff, battling one another at lunch time. Our top student was Jerry Yuan and runner up Jackson Chapman and our winning staff member was Lincoln de Thomasis. It was a fantastic effort from all and we look forward to seeing everyone again next year for our teacher-student chess competition.
I would like to congratulate the following students for their excellent work in preparation for the very successful Year 9 & 10 Music Class performance night ‘Film Score’. These students performed professionally and confidently and presented their compositions to a large audience also. Well done to Ryan Boland, Jayde Readman, Cobi Davis, Naomi Lahy, Lauren Pearson, Max Kingsbury, Isabella Davison, Lukas Mauchline, Joshua Smythe, Jack Rennie & Danika Williams!
