Awards

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.

Assembly

Each Wednesday students attend an assembly which is held in the school playground. Each assembly begins with prayer and the National Anthem is sung.

Weekly class and Mercy awards are given out at the assembly and weekly notices are announced.

Before-School, After-School and Vacation Care

An before and after-school and vacation care program operates in each school term. Bookings are made directly through the SMOOSH office (St Mary's Our Of School Hours Care Inc).
