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.
Henry Matisse said “Creativity takes courage". It is evident from our Showcase that we have courageously creative students at Merici College. We are privileged to bear witness to this fact. I am constantly impressed by the innovative, individual and powerful talent of the media makers, artists, designers, actors, dancers, dramatists, photographers, graphic artists, instrumentalists and vocalists here at Merici.
Congratulations to Georgia Tonkin, Year 12, who has been selected as part of the national team competing in the International Earth and Environmental Science Olympiad.
The International Olympics of Earth Sciences (IESO) is an annual competition for secondary school children (participant’s should not have been born before 1st July 2003) from around the world. Students test their skills in all major areas of Earth Sciences, including geology, geophysics, meteorology, oceanography, terrestrial astronomy, and environmental science.
Congratulations to Raechel McKinnon (Year 11) has been selected for the under 18s Australian Softball squad. Raechel was the only player from the ACT to be selected for this squad upon being noticed by scouts at the U18s Nationals, held in Sydney back in April of this year, where she was "recognised as among the best in their age group in the country.”
We look forward to hearing more from Raechel.

My chosen word is LEADERSHIP.
Merici prepared me and encouraged me to grow as a leader while at College but also for the future. I was the Tullow House Captain in 2007, where we were the champions of that year. I think there were a few key things that made that happen and it's such a special time to reflect on.
We would like to thank our mothers, grandmothers and significant others for celebrating this special occasion with us and wholeheartedly thank our Hospitality students for their exceptional work.
Happy Mother's Day everyone!
We would like to acknowledge the wonderful contribution made by students which, in no small part, contributed to the success of our Open Day. Over 200 students participated in Open Day activities during the day and into the night. The students were all wonderful ambassadors for our school and we have received excellent feedback from all our visitors on your exceptional skills in conducting school tours, participating in Science, Mathematics, Food Technology, Art and Textiles classroom activities, presenting dance. music, vocal and drama performances..
