Counsellor's Corner

Hannah Johnson, Merici College Counsellor

Phew! What a busy term we have had!

Congratulations to all students for making it through a tricky term of high workloads, competing deadlines for assessments, exams, and some very cold weather. It has been a pleasure to be a part of the Merici community this term and I am very excited for the semester ahead.

The school holidays are an important time to relax, reset and recharge your batteries after a busy period. Much like you wouldn’t allow your phone battery to get below 10% charge – we too need to be aware of our inner state and take a little bit of time to replenish our energy and charge our social and emotional battery.

For students and families who might need some additional support over the school holiday break, I have listed a few references that you might find of benefit.

For Students :

For Parents :

It is important to note that school counselling is not a crisis service but should you feel your daughter may benefit from school counselling when school resumes, please speak with your daughter’s House Co-ordinator or email me on

I wish you all a very relaxing and wholesome holiday break and look forward to seeing you all back next term.

Ms Hannah Johnson
