Christmas Hampers for St Vinnies

Our Year 9 Religious Education students were kept very busy yesterday packing their ‘mini-hampers’ or Christmas gifts for the St Vincent de Paul Christmas appeal. With so many students with gifts, cellophane and sticky tape, the atmosphere was very festival, sometimes semi-organised chaos but they all had lots of fun! Instead of donating individual items the students voted to form small groups and make ‘mini hampers’. The gifts are around under the Christmas tree all the students have done a great job!

Years 7-10 Advent Mass

Our community celebrated Advent on Thursday 6 December with a very special Mass. We were very honoured to welcome our Celebrant, Fr Bernie Patterson from St Brigid and St Patrick parishes in Braddon and Dickson, and Sr Genny Ryan, one of our Ursuline Sisters whose Order is instrumental to the foundation of Merici and who continue to inspire us today.

Green Tip #18 - Ekodeck Plus

Welcome to this week’s sustainability news......

The new benches in the quadrangle have been completed and they look fabulous!

Even more exciting is that fact that it is made from Ekodeck Plus, a timber substitute which is a composite of reclaimed timber and bamboo and High Density Polyethylene (HDPE).

You may also be interested to learn that in addition to decking made up of Ekodeck Plus, the natural timber trim is reclaimed timber from the spectator seats of the indoor pool at the AIS, which was completed stripped out. A great example of re-purposing.

Year 10 Awards Ceremony

We would also like to congratulate the following students who received scholarships and special awards:
