Merici College congratulates our 2024 College Leaders who were commissioned into their new roles by all members of the College.
A special commissioning ceremony was held on Thursday 21 September where the College Captain, College Vice Captain, House Captains, House Vice Captains and Specialist Captains, were officially recognised in their leadership roles for 2024.
Each House asked their leaders a series of questions, relating to the ethos of their House and the leaders responded by agreeing to fulfil their duties to the best of their ability. The offices of Specialist Captains (Arts, Culture, SRC, Sport, Social Justice, Spiritual, Sustainability, Narragunnawali and Transitions) were also conferred upon their incumbents.
As a symbol of the conferring of leadership, 2023 leaders presented symbols to the incoming 2024 leaders:
- A lighted candle was presented to signify hope and the spirit of Merici College.
- A cross which symbolised faith and God's unconditional love.
- A heart as a symbol of love and a reminder that the community of Merici College is together as one.
- Clapping sticks as a symbol of the harmony and unity of the rythme of our hearts.
The final blessing and commissioning of the College Captain and College Vice-Captain for 2024 concluded the ceremony in a joyous, uplifting manner.
