This Friday, 18th September, we will be celebrating the work of the Mercy Sisters on whose educational values our College is founded.
This year we will focus on building house spirit and healthy competition, by running games and activities for students and staff.
On Friday, all students will be able to wear their PE uniform - with their house shirt. They may like to add some extra things to "bling up" their PE uniform with house colours such as house coloured socks, hairspray, zinc and ribbons.
Activities for the day include: Liturgy, House Spirit challenges, the inaugural Mercy Games - which is a combination of sports, indoor and outdoor novelty events and a concert. A sausage sizzle lunch will be provided by the College.
SCHOLARSHIPS AND BURSARIES (CLOSING SOON)
The College offers a range of Scholarships to students who display commitment and motivation in the areas of learning, creativity, leadership, collaboration and community. Inspired by Catherine McAuley, the founder of the Sisters of Mercy, the College also offers Bursaries (monetary assistance) to enable students to attend our College when they might otherwise not have been able to do so.
The College offers Scholarships and Bursaries to current and future students for Senior School 2021 and Year 7 2022.
The closing date for Senior School Scholarships is this Monday, 21 September 2020. The closing date for Year 7 2022 Scholarships is Monday, 12 October. For more information please visit our Scholarship and Bursary page.
GIVE A DAMN? GIVE A CAN!
We kindly ask our Community to donate cans and non-perishable food items for the Give a Damn? Give a Can campaign, organised by the Rotary Club of Bunbury-Leschenault.
The donated food items will help disadvantaged families in our community. They will be distributed by Rotary to St Vincent de Paul, the Salvation Army and the Bunbury In-Town Centre who provide cheap, nutritional meals to the homeless/disadvantaged in the region.
Students can bring in any canned food and non-perishables to their homerooms until Tuesday 22 September 2020, after which the Rotary Club will collect them. Thank you for your support.
