Flynn House Day

Found in: Primary & Secondary


On Wednesday 17 May, Mercy College celebrated Flynn House Day. All students from Pre-Primary to Year Twelve were involved in the celebration and demonstrating their strong House spirit. 

Flynn students took part in a liturgical celebration where they reflected on what it means to be a part of the Flynn community. This included recalling the memory of their patron, Sister Joan Flynn, who founded Mercy College in 1972. 

Students are inspired to follow in her footsteps as they strive to think and act by their House motto “All for One” and uphold their House values of Love and Service. 

The other students from Augustine, McAdam and O’Dea houses spent time in small groups of mixed year levels bonding and building community relationships through participating in various fun activities. Then for the big finale, the whole school came together to compete House against House in a competition of super-sized soccer. Nile, the Flynn Crocodile, made a special appearance along with the other mascots. 

Congratulations to Augustine who won this competition and took home the most points for their house. A special thank you to all staff and students who helped to make this event such a big success, in particular the Flynn House Captains Melissa Bauer and Reanna Arakua, along with the other members of the Student Representative Council, the primary school student leaders and Miss Lisa Ray for playing piano.

We look forward to the next big event, McAdam House Day on Wednesday, 21 of June.
