Supervision across our campus

We provide student supervision on campus from 8:20am to 3:50pm each school day.

Parents/caregivers are reminded that Mercedes College cannot take responsibility for students who arrive on campus before 8:20am or depart after 3:50pm, unless they are involved in a College organised commitment.

Junior students arriving prior to 8:20am are required to attend our Out of School Hours Care (OSHC) which is available from 7.20am and then again after school until 6pm, Monday to Friday.

Junior School students not collected by 3:50pm will be directed to Strathspey and phone contact will be made with parents/cargivers.

Students are required to leave the school grounds when their daily school commitments are complete.

Note | Homework facilities are available for older students with Middle School students also able to access our Library before and after school for supervised study during each school Term.

Our Strathspey Reception is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 4:30pm all year round, excluding public holidays with the McAuley Office open from 8:15am to 4:15pm on schoold days during Term. You are welcome to call us on T | 8372 3200.
