National Reconciliation Week #InThisTogether2020

In 2020 Reconciliation Australia marks twenty years of shaping Australia’s journey towards a more just, equitable and reconciled nation.

Much has happened since the early days of the people’s movement for reconciliation, including greater acknowledgement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander rights to land and sea; understanding of the impact of government policies and frontier conflicts; and an embracing of stories of Indigenous success and contribution.

National Sorry Day

Today is National Sorry Day – 26 May. National Sorry Day is a significant day for all Australians, especially Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities across the nation. National Sorry Day marks the anniversary of the tabling in Federal Parliament of the Bringing Them Home Report of the National Inquiry into the Separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children from Their Families, on 26 May 1997.

Merici Mother's Day 2020

 

Each year on Mother’s Day we gather together to celebrate the mothers in our lives with a morning prayer reflection followed by a beautiful breakfast. This year is different and we have some very special messages from students and staff at Merici College to the amazing people who are the mothers in their lives. 

Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful mothers, you are amazing to manage everything so well especially in these extraordinary circumstances!

Merici College Green Tip #11 - Your soft plastic waste can become something useful!

Why did you chose to study the IB Diploma Program at Merici College?

 I chose IB because I've always been interested in doing new classes, and IB is very different from the structure I'm used to. I hope the IB DP challenges me because I want to expand my horizons. For me, the IB is a new pathway that I can use to better myself and be a well rounded person. Preashika Dhakal, Year 11
