Merici College Green Tip #2- Where Does Your Water Come From?

When you turn on the tap, do you consider where your water comes from? Or goes to afterwards?

Prior to arriving at your tap, water goes through many stages. 

First it is collected through river catchments and makes its way to our dams, which store water before it is transferred to one of our two water treatment plants.

Dance Troupe performance at St Andrew's Aged Care

Our Dance Troupe performed an hour long concert for the residents at St. Andrews Village in Hughes on Saturday, 31 August. The girls were absolutely fantastic and we have already been asked back to perform again nearer Christmas! The residents were clapping and tapping their feet and were very appreciative.

We would like to thank our dancers for their ongoing commitment to entertaining our community and attending community events.


Merici College Green Tip #25 - No Water, No Life!

Just a quick tip this week to remind us all of how important water is in our daily lives.

That leaves us with only 1% of all the water on our Earth to use to grow crops, raise animals, cool coal fired power plants, power industry and use at home, work and school.
