Mercy Day

On the last day of Term 3 we celebrated Mercy Day – a wonderful observance celebrating our Mercy Heritage and raising awareness (and funds) for Mercy Works, who run world-class programs that engage in partnership with challenged communities to enjoy the right to basic resources. We began the day celebrating Mass with Fr Michael McMahon OMI and listening to a  marvellous reflection by Sister Joan Buckham on what it means to show mercy in our world today. Our main fund-raising event was the running of stalls by each house, including a sausage sizzle, face painting, lolly bags, etc. Our Cultural Festival celebrated the many talents of our students and the day concluded with the Colour Run after lunch. Thank you to all who contributed goods, including Lesmurdie IGA who donated cans of drinks and ice for the day. Nearly $5000.00 was raised on the day – a brilliant effort by all!

St Vincent de Paul Christmas hampers

This term we are collecting goods for the St Vincent de Paul Christmas hampers, ensuring all families in our community have the opportunity to celebrate Christmas even though they may be struggling financially. Further information regarding what is needed for the hampers will be distributed next week.
