A progressive College for today and tomorrow
At MLMC, we place great importance on our physical environment. We believe it has a direct impact on a child’s capacity to succeed in learning. The College has two campuses — McAuley Campus for Years 7 to 9 and Barak Campus for Years 10 to 12.
The Mercy Learning Centre which opened in 2019 is our latest development. Built to meet the needs of our senior students, it brings together the library, lounges and seminar areas into a single community gathering place. The Mercy Learning Centre supports the sharing of student ideas outside the classroom and reflects our shift towards collaborative technology.
Year 7 students have their own dedicated space in the Mansfield Learning Centre where we cater for all aspects of transitioning to secondary school. Other specialist buildings include our Science facility with eight fully–equipped labs and the Technology facility for Food, Textiles and Wood/Metal. We also have a vineyard and farm with resident sheep, goats and chickens for our Agriculture and Horticulture students.
The College community gathers in the Doyle Centre,a multipurpose sports venue that seats 2000 people, and in Centennial Hall, which is our dedicated performance space seating 660 people — it is also home to our thriving Music department.
Sporting facilities include seven multipurpose basketball courts (four outside and three inside) and two multipurpose football fields. The Quarry Road facility is 100 metres from the College and has a football field, soccer pitch and athletics facilities — it is used by students and alumni.
Well known for its unique location atop Rourke’s Hill, the College has magnificent views over Lilydale and the Yarra Valley. Our Lady of Mercy Chapel is a place of prayer and reflection and a welcoming sight as people arrive at the College. MLMC also boasts beautifully maintained gardens and green spaces for students to run around and enjoy
each and every day.
