From our foundation in 1889, Our Lady of Mercy College Parramatta has created a tradition of strong and empathetic women. The incredible courage of the pioneering sisters from Callan, Ireland, started a legacy that continues today, educating the new generation holistically and in accordance with Mercy Values. Our College nurtures the individual strengths of each student, encouraging us to become courageous advocates with limitless possibilities.
OLMC Parramatta is blessed with a rich history of passionate leaders. Our teachers draw their inspiration from people such as the Venerable Catherine McAuley and Mother Mary Clare Dunphy. The wisdom instilled by these leaders throughout our history helps shape Mercy Education.
The values of Mercy, Compassion, Justice, Dignity, Excellence, Hospitality, Stewardship and Service, underpin our education, inspiring us to achieve our best.
We hope that 2023 is a year where students will further unite to accomplish whatever they put their minds to. To this end our Leadership Theme for the coming year is ‘Imagine, what we can do, united me and you’.
As students, we are extremely fortunate to have access to a variety of opportunities relating to every aspect of life, whether that be academic, creative and performing arts, debating and public speaking, sport, liturgy or stewardship. We are encouraged to pursue a range of co-curricular activities to assist our development to be well-rounded, motivated Mercy women who strive to make a positive change within our community.
As leaders of a Mercy school, we reflect on our rich history and tradition that keeps Mercy Spirit alive, dwelling in the hearts and minds of all students.
