High tea to celebrate 150 years of Mercy education

ST MARY'S is hosting a high tea to celebrate 150 years of Mercy education on the site at Woodend.

It is a combined venture between the primary school and the parish and is symbolic of the continued close relationship between the two.

Guests will include representatives of the Sisters of Mercy and members of the council, including the Mayor, as well as the principals of the two Mercy schools in the precinct - the primary school and the college.

In recognition of the past contribution and continuing relationship with the Edmund Rice school system, the principal of St Edmund's College will also be among the guests. Some of St Mary's oldest past pupils will also be special guests.

The high tea will be on Saturday, July 27 from 2pm-4pm and Sunday, July 28 from 10am-noon in St Mary's Primary School hall.

Tickets can be purchased at the primary school office: 3281 1998.
