MERCY COLLEGE


As a small school specialising in learning for girls, Mercy College prioritises knowing, understanding and responding to the learning needs of students. Each student is known and cared for with her academic progress tracked in parallel with attention to her wellbeing, spiritual, physical and social development. Staff at Mercy College encourage each girl to know herself, follow her heart, be a life-long learner, see her potential as limitless and live compassionately. Within the intimate learning community, opportunities are as vast as the horizon from which Mercy College girls view the world.

Facilities:
Programs and facilities are contemporary and constantly renewed. Located on Sydney Road, with easy access to trams, trains and buses, facilities include an Arts/Visual Arts Centre, Design and Technology Centre, Performing Arts/Drama Centre, Food Technology Centre, Music Centre, Library Research Centre, Careers Centre, gymnasium, weights/circuit room, multi-purpose sports courts, counselling rooms, canteen, media suite and darkroom, IT labs and computer pods. The chapel is used regularly for prayers and liturgies.

Curriculum: Learning programs are tailored to meet the needs of girls at each stage of their development. The school offers an extensive range of subject, skill and knowledge development foci in the Year 7 and 8 foundational years. At Years 9 and 10 students make critical choices about their learning pathways through independent program units. The Senior School offers VCE, VCAL and VET options which ensure that Mercy graduates have a world of opportunities available to them.

Sport: Numerous sporting opportunities exist at the college. The House system is used to promote whole-school activities, including cross country, athletics and swimming.

Extra-curricular activities: Complementing the formal curriculum is a rich tapestry of co-curricular offerings organised within and across age and house groupings. From traditional sporting pursuits such as netball, tennis, soccer, badminton and basketball to leadership, public speaking and debating, cultural immersion, book, writing and games clubs and performing arts festivals, Mercy students have much to choose from and to engage with as they grow and discover their individual talents, gifts and interests.

Student wellbeing programs: Student wellbeing programs at each year level interconnect the different dimensions of the lives of girls. Academic and wellbeing operate in symmetry with careful, individualised attention in a small school environment. Students belong to a pastoral care group that engages them in personal development programs, camps, retreats, careers counselling and work experience. There is a strong support structure for students with Year Level Co-ordinators, the Director of Student Wellbeing, the Director of Student Engagement and a full-time psychologist.
