This is the Jubilee Year of Mercy. Here at Villa Maria in Terms 3 and 4, we will be exploring and living our Year of Mercy through kindness, and our theme is “Light for the Path”. All of Year 5 were given the opportunity to nominate for these important positions. As a Mercy Steward, they will be required to work as a group to spread the message of Mercy through kindness here at Villa. We asked the Year 5 children to tell us what mercy meant to them and what exciting initiatives they could take on. Some responses were: 
• Show kindness and be on the lookout for those in need on the playground 
• Participate in Social Justice activities, for example, charity charts, helping hampers 
• Attend special ceremonies and masses, prayer days 
• Be kind calm and gentle as Jesus was 
• Be a welcoming community 

We have chosen these children as the new Mercy Stewards and have been so impressed with the responsible way they have applied for this position - Mia, Isha, Alex, Carmelo, Ava K, Elisa, Eimear, Daniella, Ellie, Alyssa, Oliver, Eloise, Charlotte and Isabella.
