Sisters of Mercy
The Sisters of Mercy were invited by the people of Mungindi on the northwest border of New South Wales and Queensland to found a school in their isolated township. Four Sisters opened the school in 1924. In addition to the primary school, a boarding school provided care for isolated girls and boys of the Mungindi district.
