It was our pleasure to warmly welcome more than 190 esteemed Alumni back to Monte for the annual Masalou Lunch. This special occasion is a celebration of Alumni who graduated from the College fifty plus years ago.
Thanks to the support of our Monte community, we are delighted to announce that we have exceeded our fundraising target of $100,000, raising an incredible $108,022 for bursaries. In 2018, you were able to double your impact with all gifts to the Appeal being generously matched by a Monte Alumna!
Monte has been blessed with a generous and caring community who are committed to making a significant difference to the lives of our young women. If you would like further information on how you can support the Bursary and Scholarship Fund or the Building Fund please contact Meagan Evans, Director Development and Community Relations on (02) 9409 6240.
The Bursary Blue Ribbon Appeal raises funds to support young Monte women whose families are struggling to cope with extraordinary personal and financial hardship.
Gifts to the Appeal are tax deductible.
Why Give to Bursaries?
We asked members of our community why they gave to the Bursary Blue Ribbon Appeal. Please watch our video and consider why you should give.
2018 Mercy Day
Mercy Day is a significant day of thanksgiving and celebration of our Mercy tradition and faith. We honour our foundress Catherine McAuley, a pioneering women of-her-time who advocated for justice and human dignity. Catherine’s teachings remind us that “it is impossible to love our neighbour without exhibiting it by acts… as our charity must be in our hearts and of our hearts.”
2018 Design Showcase
Students from Years 7-12 demonstrated their creativity and innovation through their projects. The evening culminated in a showcase of garments on the catwalk, exhibiting a wide variety of techniques and the high level of skill and ingenuity of the students.
Monte Women, Leading the Future
Monte women are educated to be leaders of our future; values-based leaders. Our “Monte Women Leading the Future” video series features inspiring Monte Alumni giving a personal account of their career journey and what a Mercy education meant to them.
