2021 College Presentation Evening

Thank you to everybody who attended the 2021 College Presentation Night at the BREC on Tuesday, 23 November. It was a wonderful evening, celebrating the achievements and Mercy spirit of our students, staff and College community.

Students were presented with different awards, recognising their contributions to co-curricular programs, their display of our Mercy values, their commitment to the Christian Service Learning programs, their demonstration of leadership and mateship and/or their outstanding application to their studies.

In between the awards presentations, families enjoyed outstanding performances by our talented drama, dance and music students.

Congratulations to all students and everybody involved. It was an extraordinary night that we will remember for a long time.
