We provide a caring educational environment where each student is known and cared for as an individual and where she feels included within the classroom and the College community.
At Mercy Catholic College, we strive for our girls to be the very best they can, and we use our school values to guide us to fulfil that pledge.
Respect – we value ourselves, and the role that our peers, teachers, parents and our environment have on shaping us become the women we want to become.
Compassion – we are empathetic and understanding of each other’s needs and background.
Integrity – we communicate with honesty and act with sincerity.
Excellence – we endeavour to do everything to our best ability.
Hospitality – we display kindness to all and are inclusive and welcoming
Students are also placed into one of four Colour Houses – (tied into tutor groups) These Houses compete against each other in the annual Swimming and Athletics Carnivals, as well as a number of other fun activities throughout the year. The names of the Houses are a reflection of our Mercy heritage and are linked to Mother Mary and Catherine McAuley, the foundress of the Sisters of Mercy.
COOLOCK – Gold House The house from which Mother Mary began her works of mercy.
MERCY – Blue House The order of teaching and nursing sisters begun by Catherine McAuley.
McAULEY – Green House Named after Catherine McAuley.
STORMANSTON – Red House The property at which Catherine McAuley resided with her parents in her very early years.
