Welcome from our College Captains

We are looking very forward to seeing all the students and teachers again soon, as well as getting to know our new students and their families.

We would like to welcome you to the 2018 school year. We are committed to supporting you throughout this year and welcome the opportunity of getting to know you better. So, please, if you see us around the school, stop for a hello; we are here to help you settle into school life and are most happy to hear any great ideas you have that will enrich our school culture.

Merici Weekly Green Tip #24 - Sam's Guide to an Eco-Friendly Festive Season


Christmas in the Wide Brown Land conjures up imagery of Santa delivering presents in his boardies, Paul Kelly making gravy (don’t forget tomato sauce for the sweetness/tang factor), and families gathering under Eucalyptus in blistering temps for lunch on the 25th. Not many sleigh bells, festive jumpers, or toasty fireplaces. But there is one seasonal stereotype we do share with our Northern Hemisphere neighbours – indulgence.

Nutrition Australia Grant for Beeswax Wrap-Making Workshops

In October, Merici was awarded a Nude Food Week grant from Nutrition Australia to run two beeswax wrap-making workshops. Last week, we were lucky enough to have Gaby from the Canberra Environment Centre facilitating the workshops, where we learnt about preventing plastic use in the kitchen and made some beeswax wraps.

Merici College Showcase 2017

Creativity is about human expression and communicating deeply. It is a gift where every artist desires to share a glimpse into part of themselves. Merici College celebrates the artistic gifts and talents of our students throughout the year but especially at our annual Showcase Exhibition.

Our students are creative risk takers, they day-dream and work hard to craft the product that tells the story they want to be told in the medium they choose to explain the mystery of life, and the adventure we are all on.
