Our Lady of Mercy College Parramatta is blessed with a rich history that enables past traditions to underpin future successes. Since its establishment in 1889, OLMC’s focus has been to educate and nurture a new generation of Mercy Women in accordance with our Mercy Values: Compassion, Justice, Dignity, Excellence, Hospitality, Stewardship, Service, and Mercy.
Our College actively empowers Mercy Girls and encourages us to model servant leadership in the footsteps of Catherine McAuley. Here, we are called to serve others before ourselves, which in turn supports a vision of justice and prosperity within the wider school community.
The Mercy foundation the College provides is essential for all students to strive toward a successful future. Our time at OLMC will be one that we will remember – and be grateful for – for the rest of our lives. We have learnt how to be independent and assertive young women who advocate for positive and lasting change within our wider community. For decades, Mercy Girls have graduated with the skills and life lessons that make them well-suited to forge their own path in the world.
We are fortunate to have access to a variety of co-curricular activities stemming across creative and performing arts, debating and public speaking, sport, stewardship and liturgy. This diversity contributes to a holistic education that promotes passion in addition to academic excellence. It is our hope that the legacy we leave will continue to resonate for years to come.
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.
