Our Mercy Heritage

Mercy Philosophy of Education


Inspired by the vision of Catherine McAuley. Mercy education is committed to holistic development and to the achievement of the full potential of each student, particularly those who are disadvantaged or marginalised.


It is a process informed and influenced by the teaching and example of Jesus Christ and is eonducted in an atmosphere of care, respect and joy.


Mercy education is committed to on-going whole-school development in collaboration and partnership with the Board of Management, Staff, Parents and the wider community.
