Mercy College is a Catholic, co-educational, Kindergarten to Year 12 College established by the Sisters of Mercy in 1972, with an enrolment of 1500 students. The College's aim is to offer a Christian education which will provide for the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional and social needs of our students.
school's motto "Love in Action" is based on the personal
understanding of what 'Mercy' meant to Sister Catherine McAuley
and the Sisters of Mercy, who travelled to Australia from Ireland
to establish Mercy convents, colleges and community facilities.
Mercy College is the direct descendent of
the original Mercy school which was situated in Victoria
Square (see our Heritage). We
proudly safeguard the heritage of the Sisters of Mercy and
practise their ethos in the care and education of our students.
