Thank you to St Thomas More's Primary and Rosary Primary who joined in our Pi Day celebrations on Friday 15 March. Over the past two days we have enjoyed exploring the number Pi and other areas of mathematics through a range of hands on, individual and group activities. Students rotated around stations for a 45-minute session run by Mathematics staff and students.
We would like to thank our Year 7 and 8 families for attending our workshop and participating in the activities on Monday 25 February. The workshop provided information to parents and students about how the IB trial MYP has changed our approach to assessment at Merici. The session provided an overview of the MYP philosophy, focusing on concept-based learning and how we are applying the MYP framework at our college, including an explanation of the new rubrics and how assessment tasks will be structured.
We are very excited to provide students with a wide range of support and enrichment activities this Semester, as well as an exciting competition.
Please see the attachments below to find more information.
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.

Welcome to this week’s sustainability news......
The new benches in the quadrangle have been completed and they look fabulous!
Even more exciting is that fact that it is made from Ekodeck Plus, a timber substitute which is a composite of reclaimed timber and bamboo and High Density Polyethylene (HDPE).
You may also be interested to learn that in addition to decking made up of Ekodeck Plus, the natural timber trim is reclaimed timber from the spectator seats of the indoor pool at the AIS, which was completed stripped out. A great example of re-purposing.
Congratulations to our Year 10 students who celebrated their academic achievements and the end of Year 10 on Thursday 6 December at a special ceremony. As our Year 10 students prepare to embark on their next stage of their educational journey, the College would like to thank them, recognising their sucesses, both academically and more broadly, their contributions to many aspects of the life and community of Merici College.
We would also like to congratulate the following students who received scholarships and special awards:
