A note from the Sisters of Mercy Parramatta
Recently an announcement was shared with our community regarding the Sisters of Mercy Parramatta choosing Mercy Partners as trustees of OLMC to protect the custodianship and continuity of OLMC into the future. In this announcement, it was noted that there will be a special liturgy to mark the handing over of the College to Mercy Partners. This event had been scheduled for October this year but has been postponed until February 2022, notwithstanding any restrictions in Sydney at that time.
Online Learning ’21 Survey
I would like to thank all parents, students and staff who completed this survey. The data collected so far has been most positive and reinforces for our staff that we are on the right track to providing online learning for our students. We will share these significant findings over the coming weeks.
Sharing our Experience
Staying connected is vital at this time and I have been delighted to see pictures of our community in their homes studying, relaxing and enjoying family time. Here below are some photos of students and staff that they have kindly shared - including a picture of an OLMC family cheering on a relative who was competing at the Olympics! Staff submitted photos in the theme of 'Shadows' and these have been put into an online gallery experience. CLICK HERE to visit the gallery!
This week I invite you to send photos in the theme of Wellbeing Wednesday - it could be a photo from your walk around your neighbourhood, playing a board game with your family or doing yoga. Please send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
