Congratulations to all students involved in the recent Cultural Awards Evening! What a wonderful night full of entertainment. It was excellent to see so many students involved in both performing and receiving awards.
Mercy College was very honoured to be invited to a recent Art Exhibit at Paxton Markets. Two classes of Year 8’s worked with the Featured Artist Julie sketching an elephant. The African Percussion also featured at the opening on the veranda in their glow and dark attire. A small group went back the following Saturday to ‘jam’ while the exhibit was open again to the public.
What a wonderful learning opportunity for our Year 8 Art students and an exciting performance for our African Percussion who are now preparing for the Eisteddfod.
This term has seen another successful campaign for soccer at the College. We were represented in Year 7 and 8 Mixed Soccer in the Mackay Inter-School competition. It is my pleasure to announce that they were successful in their grand-final by achieving a tough victory over Whitsunday Anglican School 2-0, after beating Mirani SHS 2-1 to qualify for the final.
It has been a great year of soccer at Mercy College Mackay. Not only have we appeared in 10 straight grand-finals, this is the first year in several years that Mercy has won all three competitions. A big congratulations to all students who participated.
The Student Wellbeing Committee and the Mercy community celebrated ‘Revolution Red’ last Wednesday, 9 September.
During Assembly, the committee members said what they ‘Roar’ for; this included unity, dreams, an end to bullying, and an end to teen depression and suicide.
The whole assembly then had the opportunity to take part and ‘Roar’ for their change.
Wellbeing Committee members used their lunch time to record individual students and teachers to make their own ‘Mercy Roars’ video, which was aired at Wednesday’s Assembly to conclude the month-long awareness campaign.
