  • Maintenance and support of the special character of the College and its Mercy charism
  • Support of students who may be disadvantaged either financially or socially
  • Assisting the promotion and the wellbeing of the pupils of the College
  • Participating with the College Proprietor and the Board of Trustees in capital expenditure
