Feast Day of St Angela Merici

Today we celebrate the Feast Day of our patron saint Angela Merici and her vision for education and her unique model of spirituality. She continues to be the inspiring model on which we base ourselves. Her love and sensitivity to human needs won her the title "Madre Angela" from the people of Brescia, Italy.

Uniform Shop closed today

Due to isolation requirements, the uniform shop will not be open today, Wednesday 19 January. As this was an appointment-only day, please check your email if you had a appointment for the alternative arrangements. We do apologise for any inconvenience caused.

IB Diploma Programme Success

Merici College Celebrates Their First International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme Results

Authorised to deliver the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (DP) starting in 2020, the 2021 Merici College graduating cohort is the first to make history as the first Diploma Programme students at the college.

A message from our Captains

Welcome new and returning Merici staff, sisters and members of the community to the year of 2022. What an eventful year 2021 was, and as your Captains, we could not be more excited and grateful to lead you into this new year. Hopefully, the Year 7s of 2022 will not have to experience the challenge of online learning... fingers crossed, don’t want to jinx things! Lockdown has provided some immensely complex challenges for us all and we recognise the profound impact it has had on the community, which is why we encourage all year groups to not hesitate to contact us at any time.

The Year in Vocational Education Training and Careers

This year has seen Canberra wake up to COVID lockdown with schools across the ACT sit virtually empty and businesses brace for a huge economic impact.

 

Ground Hog Day – We’ve been here before.

 

With the postponing of the AST until Term 4, and the uncertainty about assessment and BSSS requirements, with their lack of interaction with staff and friends, I really can't put into words how disruptive this year has been for students in Year 12.

 

The Year in Inclusive Education

2021 has been a year of reinforcement and progression for Inclusive Education at Merici College. With the ever growing team of professionals we have seen The Hub, our central location, become a consistent hive of activity for students from across all year groups needing additional support. This space houses many varying aspects of improving learning for students.

Classroom Support Assistants (CSAs)

The Year in the Information Centre (iC)

The Information Centre (iC) continues to be the hub of the school, a popular gathering place for students to come together before and after school and during lunch. It is so much more than a place of study or to borrow a book. It is a safe place, a place for connections, sharing ideas, working collaboratively, and coming together to share an interest.
