This is the 3rd year I have been involved with the VInnies CEO Sleepout. At Merici College, we have been doing it for longer with the students in the old quad on a cold winter's night.
Congratulations Merici College on receiving ACTSmart School Accreditation for Energy. This is our 4th accreditation, previous accreditation include Bioversity, Links to Curriculum and Waster. Our aim is to be 5-star accredited by the end of the year! Well done everyone!
Merici College congratulates staff members Laura Pearce (pictured left) and Jodie Muldoon (pictured right) on their graduation today. Laura graduated with her Masters in Religious Education and Jodie with a Master of Teaching and Graduate Certificate in Religious Education. We congratulate you both on your wonderful achievements!
In December of 2018, I had the privilege of accompanying a group of girls to the US for the CASE Senior Space School. While my group was composed of girls from Sydney, a small group of Canberra students, including two from Merici, were in another group along with the Queenslanders.
Our two weeks were spent in Houston, Texas, with a mixture of educational activities and challenges, space-related experiences, and a number of dynamic and interesting speakers and guests.
We are pleased to announce the appointment of Mrs Renee Taylor to the position of Deputy Principal Learning from January 2019.
For the second year, the Merici community has participated in a comprehensive survey, capturing feedback across many dimensions of College life. Whilst there is no formal benchmark provided against other schools, Merici enjoys a very high rating across most of the measures. Across all surveys, participants repeatedly commended the school on the positive culture, sense of faith and community, teacher engagement and caring attitude and the diversity of the student body and inclusive culture.
Merici College congratulates Dr Ann Cleary on her appointment as Assistant Principal at St John Paul II College commencing 2019. Dr Cleary will take with her a great zest for life, passion for learning, and a cornucopia full of gifts to bring to a still new and bustling community. Congratulations and good luck, Dr Cleary!
