Year 12 Graduation and Awards Ceremony

On Wednesday evening, 19 October, our Year 12 students celebrated their final chapter at the College. Students, family, and friends gathered at the beautiful St. Patrick’s Cathedral for the Graduation Liturgy, Awards Presentations and Graduation Ceremony.

The liturgy commenced with Father Con and a selection of the students leading in prayer. They asked God to guide them and their peers to use their gifts and talents to achieve their goals, and to have the strength to overcome any obstacles that they may face in the future. The liturgy concluded with Father Con blessing all of the Year 12 students.

Our Lady of Mercy College Choir, led by Mrs Tanya Kavanagh, sang An African Blessing, arrangement by Andrew Chihn, after which the official Presentation of Awards Ceremony commenced.
