A brave call was made not to cancel the Mountain Bike Championship this year! So Charlotte Farrell, Tara Maguire, Fey Etherington, Jess Kalthofen, Hannah Iles and Laura de Puit braved some shocking weather to ride with nearly 700 other high schoolers at Stromlo. The race was shortened to 2 hours as riders were shaking with cold being soaked and splattered from head to toe with mud. But fun was had by all and the girls placed a very impressive 4th and 6th in their all female category, competing against ACT and NSW teams. Well done girls!
A Message from the Director - Jennifer Wright
We congratulate Brianna Farrell on her selection in the School Sport Australia Girls 16 Years and Under Hockey Championship, currently being held at the Gold Coast. Brianna scored the first goal in the first game against South Australia and the team is playing well.
We look forward to more updates from Brianna.

We congratulate Charly Robinson (Year 7) on her achievements at the 2018 Equestrian NSW Interschool State Championships held in Sydney. Charly competed in the 90cm secondary class and with her placings over the 3 days, won overall champion 90cm secondary. There were 60 competitors from across the state up to Year 12 in the 90cm class, so to win overall champion is an amazing achievement. The win should qualify Charly for the NSW Interschools team to compete at the Australian Championships in Melbourne during October.
Canberra’s cold temperatures did not favour Merici College Year 10, 11 and 12 students and teachers who rose to the challenge on Thursday 28 June for the annual Student Vinnies Sleepout.
The group slept outdoors in the New Quad to raise funds for Canberra’s homeless with the aim of promoting awareness within our Merici community of the issue of homelessness and for the students to experience a small part of the reality of homelessness.
