Counsellor's Corner - Holidays

It is hard to believe that we are in the final weeks of the 2022 school year, and the festive season is knocking on our door! All students, families, teaching, and support staff have had a challenging year as we have navigated ongoing COVID related stress, full time face to face learning, rescheduled camps, teacher absences and unseasonably cold weather – just to name a few. It has been inspiring to see the determination of our students continue to show up for themselves and others and regularly apply themselves.

Merici College Green Tip #37: About toothbrushes...

Your dentist would ideally like to see you change your toothbrush every three to four months. 

That's a lot of plastic waste.

According to the World Wildlife Fund, around 3.5 billion disposable plastic toothbrushes – usually made from polypropylene and nylon which can take up to 500 years to break down in landfill – are purchased each year around the world. 

The vast majority will end up as plastic pollution.
