Merici College Green Tip # 15 - World Bee Day

Monday 20th of May was World Bee Day.

 

We all can contribute to the preservation of bees and other pollinators:

Plant nectar-bearing flowers for decorative purposes on balconies, terraces, and gardens.

Buy only Australian made honey and hive products.

Raise awareness among children and adolescents on the importance of bees and express your support for beekeepers.

Current of Grace Conference delegates visit Merici College

On Tuesday 21 May, Merici College hosted an international delegation attending the Current of Grace Conference in Canberra. Mrs Masters welcomed the delegates warmly and Mrs Harrold-Carter explored ways that Merici College employs the four phase model of Youth Ministry . Our students showcased the CSYMI program, starting with engaging ice breakers and role plays. They shared personal testimonies and recounted their experiences as members of the ACU Academy programme. The activities were structured around the CPR model of youth ministry—Connection, Proclamation, and Response.

Merici College Green Tip # 14 - Your Carbon Footprint

What is your carbon footprint?

A carbon footprint is the total amount of greenhouse gas emissions that come from the production, use and end-of-life of a product or service. 

It includes carbon dioxide — the gas most commonly emitted by humans — and others, including methane, nitrous oxide, and fluorinated gases, which trap heat in the atmosphere, causing global warming. 

Usually, the bulk of an individual’s carbon footprint will come from transportation, housing, and food. 

Open Day Thanks!

We would like to acknowledge the wonderful contribution made by students which, in no small part, contributed to the success of our Open Day, Be Merici Girl Days and Talk and Tours. Over 300 students participated in these activities. The students were all wonderful ambassadors for our school and we have received excellent feedback from all our visitors on your exceptional skills in conducting school tours, participating in Science, Mathematics, Food Technology, Art and Textiles classroom activities, presenting dance, music, vocal and drama information.

Mother's Day Liturgy and Lunch

On Friday 10 May, our College was honoured by the presence of more than 100 mothers and significant others from our Merici family. The focus of the Prayer was centred around the love of a mother and ongoing nurturing that mothers provide to their children every day. After the Prayer, guests and students enjoyed a delicious lunch prepared and served by the Hospitality students. It was a wonderful opportunity for our community to celebrate Mothers’ Day, share stories, laugh together and make more connections while sharing a meal together.
