Our Programme

In Our Lady of Mercy College we encourage our students to participate in a range of activities which aim to enhance their skills, talents, creativity, self-confidence, independence and enjoyment. Some of these activities will take place after school and others will tie in with subject areas. As a Catholic school we also encourage our students to be involved in the service of others at a local and global level.
