Our Principal, Mrs Katrina Kerr-Bell attends the monthly Board Meetings.

Over the last three years the Board has been focused on the design, construction and opening of Te Atawhai, our wonderful new modern learning space and administrative support area. Our young Mercy women are now benefitting from this amazing space which allows them to learn in the most up-to-date of learning environments and benefit from the break-out spaces which adjoin it.  We are now turning out attention to our next major maintenance and development projects so that we continue to provide a great space for our young women to learn and develop in.
