2019 Swimming Carnival Results

Merici College’s 2019 Swimming Carnival saw students compete in traditional stroke and novelty events. The carnival allowed many students who have spent very early mornings involved in local swim squads to showcase their talents and also provided an avenue for all the girls to take part in a challenging activity.

Dance Troupe at the Multicultural Festival

Year 7 Aspiring to Achieve Parent Workshops

On Tuesday 13 February we welcomed parents and students from Year 7 to our Aspiring to Achieve workshops. The workshops are aimed at supporting our families to a successful transition into High School at Merici. The evening commenced with a presentation by Coastlife Adventures regarding the upcoming Year 7 Camp. This was followed by a rotation of three key sessions covering:

Merici Green Tip #1 - Energy and Management of Waste

Here at Merici we will be focused on reducing our energy use this term with a view to gaining our Energy Accreditation from ACTsmart Schools.  This means switching off appliances including lights and air conditioners when leaving a room and running air conditioning at sensible temperatures. For example, if it is 35 degrees outside, 26 degrees would be a good temperature to set your cooling systems.

Celebrating Student Achievements and Awards

It was with great pride and appreciation that Mrs Loretta Wholley and members of the Leadership Team presented academic awards to students on Monday 11 February for their achievements in Semester 2 2018.

Mrs Wholley addressed the students, recognising the achievements and hard work of all students.

“As students at Merici you are called to: Be compassionate and faithfilled young women who reach out to others and are a powerful voice for those less fortunate.

Our NASA Space School Experience

In December of 2018, I had the privilege of accompanying a group of girls to the US for the CASE Senior Space School.  While my group was composed of girls from Sydney, a small group of Canberra students, including two from Merici, were in another group along with the Queenslanders.

Our two weeks were spent in Houston, Texas, with a mixture of educational activities and challenges, space-related experiences, and a number of dynamic and interesting speakers and guests.

Principal's Welcome

Welcome to 2019 and the celebration of our 60th anniversary. I would like to especially welcome our new Year 7s and students who have joined the Merici Community in Years 8 through to Year 11.
