Thornhill staff and pupils celebrate Mercy Day 2017
Established by the Sisters of Mercy, the ethos of Thornhill College emphasises the values of hard work, achievement, enjoyment of learning and service to our community.
Whilst adapting, over the years, to the needs of successive generations, always planning that our students will display learning and leadership in their spiritual, social and professional lives, we remain proud of our heritage and each year celebrate Mercy Day by holding a 'Loose Change Appeal' in support of the work of the Sisters of Mercy in the Sudan.
This year we raised a total of £600 which will be sent directly to Sr Cathy for the Mercy Girls School in the Nuba Mountains in Sudan.
This money will contribute greatly to the running of the school for this academic year.
Well done to all who contributed!
