On Tuesday 19 October our Year 12 students celebrated their last day of school after 13 years. It was a day of mixed emotions for many. There was the excitement and the highs of reaching the end of high school but also the sadness and realisation that they were finishing their time at Mount Lilydale Mercy College.

The day was an opportunity for the students to celebrate finishing the school year with their classmates as well as staff who had helped to guide them through the challenges that 2021 threw at them. This day was no different to Celebration Days of the past as we celebrated Mass and College Colour presentations, but these were done via Zoom. Students also completed photo activities for their upcoming Graduation, to be held on Friday 19 November, and later they dressed up in costumes following either the ‘2000s’ or ‘When I grow up’ themes. One of the highlights was the video played at the end of the day recognising and celebrating their six years at the College.

It was fantastic to witness the excitement and enthusiasm of the students and it was a great celebration of their time at Mount Lilydale Mercy College. The students conducted themselves in an exemplary manner and were a credit to themselves.

Thank you to the many staff who contributed to the success of this day. We wish the students all the best with the next week of study followed by their final examinations.
