It was great to see so many faces at our Enrolment Information Evening on Tuesday 19 May, we hope that everyone enjoyed their time, discovered the amazing opportunities available to students at our College and that we were able to share some of the teaching and learning experiences we provide. Reminder to have enrolment application forms returned to the College by Friday 29 May.
Each year Queensland Ballet endeavours to bring the professional ballet experience to regional areas of Queensland. The wonderful edsquad provides school students with the opportunity to participate in workshops.
The College was lucky to be able to participate in this excellent initiative again this year. Students where enlightened on the classic ballet story ‘Coppelia’ and invited to learn a section of repertoire.
Jacob and Martha educated students aspiring to be a dancer on the avenues offered by Queensland Ballet, technique and the performance ‘Coppelia’. We were fortunate in attending the show as a group at the MECC.
Last week the College celebrated Mother’s Day with a special Mother’s Day prayer celebration at the commencement of Assembly. During this time all-female staff members and tuckshop volunteers received a Mother’s Day blessing and candle from the student body.
The Student Wellbeing Committee has brought Mindfulness to Mercy in May. During May students are encouraged to take up the challenge and earn MindFit points.
Posters have been distributed to every Homeroom with MindFit exercises to help build a positive mental attitude, with suggested exercises that add up to 100 points. The idea is to take time every day to do one, if not more MindFit exercises, keep a tally then record them on the chart. Some of the exercises include making 10 people smile, spending 5 minutes in nature, or having a complaint free day.
