Opposition leader Bill Shorten and Cowan candidate Anne Aly visited Mercy College on April 4.

“Mr Shorten along with Dr Aly were greeted by seven of our students – Alex Silla, Rianna Pocsidio Matthew Catchick, Ariana Franchina, and family friends of Mr Shorten Tia, Rani and Erin Price,” community relations officer Stewart Crainie said. “Students had the chance to have a short discussion with Mr Shorten about the college while they accompanied him to the Year One Chi classroom for a visit.

“A couple of our students had the chance to have a friendly chat with Mr Shorten about what they enjoy most about school.

“Mr Shorten left a lasting impression on head boy Alex Silla by reminding him that when he turns 18 this year he’ll be eligible to vote.”
