  • Naidoc Week celebrations were held this week Monday 22 – Friday 26 June

    • Tuesday during first break we held our Naidoc BBQ in the Tuckshop area. A massive thank you to the staff members who took the time out of their lunch break to join us in eating some delicious traditional foods: crocodile, emu & kangaroo. The Indigenous students involved showed so much pride in serving and preparing these special cultural dishes for their teachers and peers.
    • Wednesday – special guest didgeridoo player Lyndon, entertained staff and students during the lunch break with wonderful music and entertaining stories.
    • Thursday - we held a Kup Murri, (which is similar to a Hangi) out on the oval for Mercy College staff, which was enjoyed by all who sampled our cultural food.

    Naidoc week celebrations continued throughout the week and we appreciated the ongoing support from the Mercy College Staff.

  • In exciting news, the Mercy Runners have recommenced weekly meetings after COVID19 caused break. Each Thursday morning, Mercy’s fittest and finest, open their sleepy eyes and dust off their runners at the Botanic Gardens from 7:00 to 8:00am.

    Over the past fortnight we have seen our numbers grow and are extremely impressed with the development of our team. Just last week, Damien Rutland and Brodie Hocking ran an outstanding 4km, in under 16 minutes. In addition, many of our newer members have smashed both distance and time personal bests after only 2 weeks of training. This Thursday we are having breakfast after our run, and are looking forward to a pancake frenzy.

  • Ask what the definition of student leadership is and you will get a lot of definitions. Ask what the qualities of a student leader are and you will hear answers such as:

    • trustworthy, responsible, respectful and resilient
    • great listener and communicator
    • capable of finding solutions that work for everyone
    • able to get along and work well with others
    • has purpose, vision, and sets goals

    Our Year 7 and 8 students recently participated in some leadership activities that assisted them in identifying and developing leadership qualities. By providing these opportunities, we are helping students come up with their own definition of what student leadership is.

  • This semester despite COVID 19 the members of the environmental committee have been working hard to make the world a better place. The selection of committee chair Aaron Lange came with a lot of new members and a lot of new ideas to preserve and protect the environment.
