Mercy Campus is our Early Years Campus for Prep to Year 3. This campus is located on Marathon Street at the original school site. This site was established in 1925 by the Sisters of Mercy and as such has a Mercy Charism. On Mercy Campus, our dedicated early years teachers are focussed on providing the essential elements of an Early Years education. Parental Involvement, solid Literacy and Numeracy foundations and a nurturing environment are all the cornerstones of our Early Years precinct.
Our intention is to provide a positive introduction to school through activities such as:
- Care Groups
- Lunch time activities - quiet zone, play zone, dress ups
- Butterfly and Fairy Gardens
- Vege garden, worm farm and chickens
- Parent morning teas and information sessions
Each class has its own core teacher who is responsible for the well-being and academic progress of each student. In addition, there are numerous specialist teachers and programmes offered on Mercy Campus - instrumental music, drama club, art club, indonesian, HPE, visual arts and early intervention are just a few. Home/school communication is valued and promoted via class blogs and newsletters. Parents are welcome and invited to take part in assemblies, classroom help and special celebrations.
