Merici College Green Tip #23 - Water Conservation

Today the combined water total for our four water storage dams in Canberra is 55.73% according to ICON water. This is as we start the last month of winter when traditionally we receive most of our rainfall.

Here at Merici we are focused on water conservation at all times but this Term in particular as we aim for our accreditation in water from ACTsmart schools.

Student Achievement - Imogene Blake selection to 2020 National Constitutional Convention

Imogene Blake has been selected as one of just five year-11 Canberra students to attend the National Constitutional Convention next year. This comes after competing in the ACT Constitutional Convention at parliament a couple of weeks ago. Imogene’s selection is a rare honour. Also represented will be Canberra Grammar, Radford, Dickson and Daramalan, two girls and three boys. The Convention will be an intense experience of debating and deliberating with students from all states and territories over three days in March, to make recommendations to the Federal Parliament.

Merici College Green Tip #22 - Can you plant a tree too?

Friday 26th July was National Tree Day!

National Tree Day is a call to action for all Australians to put their hands in the earth and give back to their community.

This year’s Tree Report, entitled Living Cities: Trees in the Urban Environment digs deep into the science on trees and the countless benefits they provide in our urban environment:

Lifeline Canberra Stress Down Day @ Merici

Stress Down Day is a fun and easy initiative designed to reduce stress and raise funds for Lifeline Canberra. Research shows that 90% of Australians need to stress less! What can you do today to stress less? Spend time with friends, eat your favourite food, enjoy nature, hug your best friend, call a family member, or go for a walk. Too many to name, but plenty of options, that hopefully can make their way into your life routine and help you stress less every day.

Student Reflection - Rosemary Zielinski (International Physics Olympiad)

As part of the Australian team for the International Physics Olympiad, I was privileged enough to have the opportunity to go to Israel to compete in the July holidays. This was undoubtedly a life-changing experience: seeing the world, and meeting the world's future scientists. I met passionate students from across the globe, from countries including, but not limited to: Kazakhstan, Brazil, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, South Africa, Germany, Poland, France, Korea, and Israel.
