Future Mercy Girls and their Families Welcomed to Allwell Testing & Parent Information Morning

On Saturday November 4, the College welcomed over 300 future Mercy community members to the Year 7, 2018 Allwell Testing and Parent Information Morning.

The dreary weather could not dampen the spirits of both the future Mercy Girls and their parents, keen to start their OLMC journey.

The girls undertook Allwell Testing in the Edith Angel Hall and Christina Creede Music Centre while parents heard from the College Leadership Team and Leaders of Learning about what they can expect from a Mercy Education when their daughter starts next year.

It was a great chance for our new parents to speak with staff members, meet our student hosts and see the College facilities.
