As the College looks to the final days of Term 4, there is so much to be grateful for; our beautiful new Brigid Shelly Northern Wing, the conclusion of exam blocks for all years and of course the incredible teaching staff at OLMC who are busy writing end-of-year reports. We are eagerly awaiting the HSC results and College is buzzing with Christmas festivities.
I am honoured to have led the College in 2023 and I am so proud of the many successes that have unfolded for our Mercy community during the year. The most recent is of course the opening of our new and refurbished Brigid Shelly building on Friday, 17 November. This exciting event saw Dr Ricki Jeffery, Board Chair of Mercy Partners unveil the plaque and the building was blessed by the Very Reverend Robert Riedling, Episcopal Vicar for Education, Diocese of Parramatta.
It was a beautiful balmy evening attended by the Sisters of Mercy, members of the College Board, Alumnae, College staff, students and parents, as well as many special guests including Dr Andrew Charlton MP, Member for Parramatta, Donna Davis MP, State Member for Parramatta and Cr Pierre Esber, the Lord Mayor of Parramatta. We look forward to sharing stories, experiences and possibilities that this building will provide to Mercy girls and the OLMC community.
