At Merici College, our goal is to be active role models for your daughters. Our teachers and support staff are committed to personal and professional development and are also travelling along a learning journey. We realise that learning never stops and we have teachers currently graduating and enrolled in courses. They are varied and interesting and all contribute to deepening individual knowledge, which is then shared with your daughters.
We challenge our students to take risks within and beyond the classroom to achieve individual academic excellence. We do this through our Catholic values, a strong sense of community, pastoral care and support, our international standard of academic achievement, our diverse co-curricular offering and the personalised attention and care that every student needs.

Stephanie has also taken on the role of CAS facilitator, and is looking forward to supporting our IB Diploma students throughout their DP journey.
Merici College congratulates every student on their personal and academic achievements for 2021. These have been acknowledged at the College's Graduation and Award Ceremony. Here is a proud snapshot of the Class of 2021 and a glimpse of the contribution Merici students will make to our local and global community in the future. Four students successfully completed the 1B Diploma Programme. All four of these students attained an ATAR well above the Australasian average. 69 students received their Year 12 ACT Senior Secondary Certificate.

Thank you to our community for supporting our Ukraine Appeal. We have been overwhelmed with the many generous donations received and today our students thoroughly enjoyed ‘planting’ their prayer cards and messages of hope to the Ukraine community. Prayer cards will be given to the officials at the Embassy of Ukraine to pass onto the Ukrainian community. All money raised will be donated to Caritas Ukraine to provide immediate and longer-term humanitarian assistance to communities affected by the conflict in Ukraine, and to displaced Ukrainians in neighbouring countries.
This week we are proud to introduce Mrs Jen Baines, LOTE Coordinator.
