2020 Annual Report to the Community

2020 had a significant effect within the Merici College school community due to the impact of fire, drought, hail, death in the community and a pandemic; however, it was also a time of great community spirit, growth and resilience.

The College remained focused to the strategic plan and aspirations:

STRONG FAITH: To build a strong and positive Catholic identity, where faith is nurtured, and all are empowered to serve others.

POWERFUL LEARNING: An educational environment that inspires life-long learning, enabling everyone to achieve individual excellence.

Merici College Green Tip #19 - Just a bowl of rice?

According to University of Queensland research, people are consuming 3-4 milligrams of plastic for every 100 grams of rice they eat, with the number jumping to 13 milligrams per serve for instant rice. 

This means that Australians may consume around 1g plastic per person via rice annually.

How has this happened?

Packaging is one source of contamination, however the processing of the rice before it gets put into a bag or during growing are also sources of contamination. 

What can you do?

Years 7/8 School's Parlimentary Debate, ACT Legislative Assembly

Today, at the ACT Legislative Assembly, four Year 7-8 Merici students participated in the School’s Parliamentary debate.

The students got the opportunity to conduct these debates in the main chamber of the Legislative Assembly and the event was moderated by the Speaker of the House.

Six schools participated in the debate this morning, representing schools from Catholic Education, the public and independent sectors. There were three questions up for debate, with schools arguing for and against.

Merici successfully argued that the ACT flag should not be changed.
