Mercy College is a Catholic, coeducational, Kindergarten to Year Twelve College established by the Sisters of Mercy in 1972, with an enrolment of over 1600 students. The College's aim is to offer a Christian education which will provide for the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional and social needs of our students.
The school's motto Love in Action is based on the personal understanding of what 'Mercy' meant to Sister Catherine McAuley and the Sisters of Mercy, who travelled to Australia from Ireland to establish Mercy convents, colleges and community facilities.
Mercy College is directly descended from the original Mercy school which was situated in Victoria Square. We proudly safeguard the heritage of the Sisters of Mercy and practise their ethos in the care and education of our students.
