At St Mary’s we:
An assembly is held each week and awards are presented. Individual student’s achievements both in and out of school are acknowledged and recognised and posted in the School Newsletter. Each week the school recognises the five Mercy Values (Mercy, Justice, Service, Excellence and Compassion) and an award is given.
This is awarded yearly to a student from each class for consistently displaying Mercy values in their dealings with others. This award is given out at the Mercy Mass in Term 2.

Each Wednesday students attend an assembly which is held in the school playground. Each assembly begins with prayer and the National Anthem is sung.
Australians all let us rejoice,
Beneath our radiant southern cross,
We’ll toil with hearts and hands;
To make this Commonwealth of ours
Renowned of all the lands;
For those who’ve come across the seas
We’ve boundless plains to share;
With courage let us all combine
To Advance Australia Fair
In joyful strains then let us sing
Advance Australia Fair.
Weekly class and Mercy awards are given out at the assembly and weekly notices are announced.
