Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are unable to hold our Academic Awards ceremonies as normal this semester. We will be conducting the ceremonies via live stream through our Merici College YouTube channel.
Today the Merici College community reflected on the significance of Easter by exploring the Stations of the Cross and other important aspects of Holy Week in the Easter Liturgy. The liturgy was completely student-focussed with approximately 50 students leading all elements. it was a beautiful liturgy and we would like to thank all our students for their reverence and reflection.
On behalf of the staff at Merici College, I wish our community a very Holy and Blessed Easter.
cThe BBQ was a great opportunity for our whole community to gather, parents to meet PC Teachers and for us to welcome new families to the College. Our six individual Houses were vibrant in their presence with House Coordinators, House Captains and Vice Captains coming along to meet and greet new families, welcoming them to our community. We would like to particularly thank our Dance Troupe for entertaining us throughout the event with exceptional dance routines.
