Dear OLMC Alumnae

'… You work hard for what you want in life.
That your word is your bond; that you do what you say you're going to do.
That you treat people with dignity and respect,
even if you don't know them and even if you don't agree with them.'

- Michelle Obama

Wise words for us all to reflect on at a time when all around us we can see individuals getting caught up in the unknown and uncertainties of the pandemic. Individuals can become fearful and, without even realising it, start to think only of their own needs and their own safety. Communities, where people feel connected and valued, think of collective needs and collective safety. This is what makes OLMC such a strong community - we are people who treat each other with dignity and respect no matter what. It is what we value and we accept nothing less for ourselves and for each other.

Continuous Learning

The College has transitioned smoothly to remote learning once again thanks to our professional teaching and support staff. Regardless of whether our community gathers physically on the College campus or meets together virtually through our digital platforms, our Continuous Learning environment means that students will continue to learn and teachers will continue to teach. Our core purpose has not changed. The way we engage with our core purpose is what has changed and will continue to evolve.

We hope all Mercy Girls are staying safe and well during this time.

Warm regards

Marie Wood
Principal (Acting)

New Enrolments

Even during the recent lockdown of the College, we continued to offer Virtual College Tours. Families enjoyed a video tour of the College followed by a face-to-face chat with a member of our Enrolments Team.  

If you know of a family considering an all-girls high school education for their daughter, please encourage them to make contact with the College or complete an Expression of Interest form. There is no charge for placing a student's name on the College register.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Enrolments Officer, Julie McIntyre enrolments@olmc.nsw.edu.au
