Open Day Thanks!

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.

Merici College Green Tip #12 - What to do with used paper towel

Used paper towel is often found in the yellow recycling bins at Merici.

Paper towels are not recyclable and cannot be disposed of alongside your other paper and cardboard recyclables.

Although paper towels are typically made using wood or cardboard, the process that gets them kitchen-ready makes them non-recyclable

Plus, they can also be contaminated with toxic or non-organic products.

Unbleached paper towels can go in the compost.

Others must sadly go to landfill. 

Merici College Green Tip #11 - Want to reduce your indoor air pollution

Get a plant!

Australians spend around 90% of their time indoors.

Studies show that indoor air is more polluted than outdoor air.

Indoor plants are an easy and attractive way to purify the air in your home and workplace.

Keep them away from your pets though!

Easter Liturgy

Easter is the greatest celebration in the Catholic church signifying the completion of the Holy week that ends with the resurrection of Jesus. Today, to mark this special occasion in the Church’s calendar, Merici College commemorated these events with a very special liturgy. The students reflected Jesus’ journey through the Stations of the Cross. They also acknowledged the story of our indigenous brothers and sisters, focusing on the universality of the human spirit and how it we come together as one in the spirit of communitas.
