Welcome to Term Four. I have to say this year really is flying by.
College Leaders 2021
We finished Term 3 off with the celebration of Mercy Mass in the Grotto and the announcement of the 2021 College Leaders.
|Head Girls||Alyx Hawkins and Trinity Sorenson|
|Head Boarders||Rose Carter and Taz Marshall|
|Ministry Leader||Samantha Dewar|
|Sports Leader||Rachel Dupont|
|Cultural Leader||Hannah Harrison|
|Sustainability Leader||Mikayla Musca|
We have modernised the Learning Leader and the Arts Leader roles to Sustainability Leader and Cultural Leader in 2021.
The new leaders had an opportunity to join their parents and the college staff at a shared morning Tea after Mass before they went to join the other students in the Mercy Celebrations. They watched and voted the pre-recorded Cultural Festival, and at lunchtime, students from across the College enjoyed the festive feel of our Mercy Stalls. After lunch, we had more fun with the Colour Run and what a joy it was seeing everyone out there laughing, and I would like to say, washing away with powder and water, Term 3.
Early in Term 4 we said goodbye to our 2020 Year 12s through various activities from boater throwing to their Graduation Mass and this year, the presentation of awards after mass before having a shared meal at Optus Stadium. While some are already out working, the ATAR students are studying for their WACE exams which begin on the 2nd November. We wish them all the best of luck for the next chapter in their lives.
The Physical Education staff organised a wonderful Sportspersons Evening where they announced award winners and it was great to see the large number of students who have participated in various sporting activities this year. Well done to all of the young ladies who received certificates, merits and honours.
Presentation Evening and IDU week
The Year 7 -11 Prizegiving Evening was held in the College gym – a huge difference from previous years dare I say due to COVID and what a wonderful evening it was. The students in Years 7 -10 spent the rest of week two working on their Individual Disciplinary Units. This is where they had the opportunity to work outside of their regular classroom lessons and produce an array of items from a blog to an activity for junior school students.
Our girls look very smart in their summer dresses, however some of them need a friendly reminder about the consequences of wearing the wrong uniform, including the extra piercings as well the use of their mobile phone while at school. Three is the magic number. Three lunchtime detentions equal an after-school detention and loss of Good Standing. Three mobile phone confiscations equal the phone remaining at school until a parent can collect it.
