Extra Curricular Activities

In furthering the education of the whole person philosophy, Mercy College offers students a range of extra-curricula opportunities to choose from.

Students starting the annual bikeathon

At Mercy College our curriculum aims to incorporate many extra curricula activities into the Subject Areas. This has the added bonus of allowing students to gain credit for them and other activities they may do outside of school. We find that students are motivated by this and feel rewarded for their efforts.

  • ANZAC Day March
  • Bikeathon
  • Book Club
  • Chess
  • Debating
  • Performing Arts: Choir, Handbells, Concert Band, Junior Band, Mass Band, String Ensemble, Drum Corps, African Percussion Ensemble, School Musical
