Girls in Maths: It just adds up!

On Wednesday 10 March, the staff and students at Merici College invited Year 6 students, from all around Canberra and beyond, to a Girls in Mathematics Day. Students participated in three key activities: Learning about ratios and fractions, through investigating the formula for the perfect ‘sherbet’; Puzzle fun through learning new tips that can be applied in other numerical situations; and learning the importance of team work and supporting teach other through competing in a team relay.

A Prayer during Change (written and composed by Imogene Blake, Class of 2020)

For this task, I created a choral piece entitled, ‘A Prayer During Change’, praying to Saint Angela Merici, as ‘…a woman of foresight and courage who enjoined her successors to make changes according to the needs of the time.’ (The Editors of the Encyclopedia Britannica, 2020), for guidance and strength during ‘… times of change’. The piece explores the theme of transitioning, reflecting on challenges faced by the Merici Community during 2020, and highlighting how, whilst confronting, periods of transition facilitate growth and flourishing.

The Year in Science

Wow, what a year. Bushfires, smoke, hail, COVID-19, remote learning and the constant feeling of not really knowing what was going to happen next, has made this a highly unusual year for everyone. It is definitely a year we would like to not repeat, but it has also shown how amazing and resilient the Merici community really is, including the Science Department.
