One landscape colour digital photograph taken on 6 September 2011 showing demolition of the former Convent of Our Lady of Mercy. St Mary's School, run by the Sisters of Mercy, was also housed in this building. At the time of the 4 September 2010 earthquake the building was a private residence.

Three years after the 2010-2011 earthquakes there are still many uncertainties about which buildings can or will be retained. These buildings, or parts of buildings, sit behind safety fencing awaiting decisions from their owners, insurers and engineers. The owners of the old convent have retained parts of the foundations and entrance columns from the 1930s building in the hope that when there is a new use for the site these features can be incorporated into a new design.
