Hampden Catholic Schools Network (HCSN)

Mercy Regional College is a member of the Hampden Catholic Schools Network (HCSN) along with three Catholic primary schools in the region – St Patrick’s Primary School Camperdown, St Colman’s School Mortlake and St Thomas’ Primary School Terang. 

By working closely as a network, we are able to ensure a smooth transition from primary to secondary schooling. Year 7 students at Mercy Regional College begin their holistic secondary education at a dedicated Year 7 & 8 Campus in Noorat. Primary school students going to Year 7 have the opportunity to experience life at our College on the Network Day organised by HCSN during the Catholic Education Week. 

A close relationship between the schools creates a family-like environment for our students, their families and staff. HCSN aims to enhance teaching practices through sharing resources and collaboration around subject areas such as Religious Education, Literacy and Numeracy. Staff from the four HCSN schools have an opportunity to network professionally during a School Mass to celebrate the start of an academic year. 

Families within the network are supported by a Homeschool Liaison Officer who works directly with parents and answers any questions that may arise.
