Master Plan

Master Plan Update

During January 2008, the College’s board approved the College Master Plan 2008 – 2016 and this has led to the completion of new building works and refurbishments to provide excellent facilities within which learning now takes place.

On Monday June 22, 2015 the first soil was turned to mark the commencement of construction of the Ailsa Mackinnon Centre, a brand new community and sports centre set for completion in late 2016.

Named after Sister Ailsa Mackinnon who was Principal of the College from 1990 to 2004, the new community centre will be located at the corner of O’Connell Street and Victoria Road; it will feature an indoor multi-purpose sports and gathering place (seating approximately 1200 people) as well as four teaching and learning spaces, a roof top outdoor sport area and a gymnasium.

The Ailsa Mackinnon Centre is the final element of an ambitious Master Plan which began in 2008 and saw the construction of the Janet Woods Building (featuring multiple fully equipped science labs, a new library, state of the art food technology spaces and a botany room), a new dedicated Student Centre, a Dance Studio and the purpose built Christina Creede Music Centre. Stanton Dahl Architects have been appointed as the architects for the Ailsa Mackinnon Centre project while Reitsma Constructions Pty Limited are the appointed builders.

Inspiring Mercy Women: The Ailsa Mackinnon Centre Public Art Appeal

Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the Ailsa Mackinnon Centre Public Art Appeal has successfully raised over $8000.

This will enable the College to commission artworks befitting this contemporary building which express and reinforce the Mercy Values and honour and celebrate the women of our school (past, present and future).
