Interact Students had the pleasure of delivering Easter Eggs to three of our Nursing Homes before Easter. Residents of Homefield, Good Shepard Lodge and St Francis of Assisi were very excited and grateful for the visit by our students. Thank you to all families who supported our Easter Appeal and donated Easter Eggs to this worthy cause.
Each Friday, weather permitting, will see a group of Mercy teachers, students and parents riding from the Botanic Gardens (Playground car park) to the College via the Bluewater and Sandfly Creek trails. You are welcome to join us from 6.45am for a 7.00am start. We are expecting to arrive at the College soon after 8.00am. This is a great opportunity to warm up for the Bikeathon on May 15 or the Mackay District Interschool Mountain Bike Championships on May 13. You are welcome to join us if you are able.
On Friday 24 March the 2016 Mercy College Mackay Annual Cross Country was held on a beautiful Mackay day. The students were tasked with running 3.5 kilometres through some of the toughest terrain known to humans, starting at the Botanical Gardens and finishing up in front of the Lagoons.
The day started with the Opens and Under 15 boys commencing their races with Cody Nicholas (Triton) winning for the Opens and Caleb Galea (Pindar) crossing the line first for the Under 15 boys. Next it was the Under 15’s girls and they set a cracking pace with Olivia Parsons (Midas) securing the victory. It was then the younger students turn, with the Under 12 boys and girls taking off respectively. Harper Kerrisk (Midas) was first over the line for the boys with Paris Santacaterina (Pindar) crossing first for the girls. The under 14’s boys saw Jerome Octubre (Oraya) finish first with Layla Sanders (Midas) the first of the under 14’s girls to finish. The under 13’s saw Brynn Du Rand (Badila) and Hayley Said (Triton) win their races with some outstanding stamina.
