Bastille Day Celebrations

Today we celebrated Bastille Day with students reflecting on the importance of the day in Pastoral Care classes. We were treated to a wonderful French menu in our Canteen with delicious crème puffs and crepes served, together with other French delicacies. Hands were clapping and feet were tapping with our Dance Troupe performing for our community during lunch time, with the all-time favourite, the Can-Can, the highlight of their performance.

Merici College Green Tip #21 - We have heaps of water, right?

So there has been some rain, the fires are out, it’s green, we must have plenty of water in the dams right?

Actually the combined dam levels today are 55.99% currently (ICON water).

Readers from last year’s Greentips may recall that in July last year the combined dam levels were….55% (ICON water).

Year 10 Transitions Forum and Reflection Day

During the week, Year 10 students at Merici College participated in the 2020 Transitions Forum. The Forum is held every year and is dedicated to Year 10 students moving into their final years of education, providing them with an opportunity to consider their course choices for Years 11 and 12 and to think about career pathways.

The students considered how to make decisions, reflected on what is important in their lives, tried out a few different careers, learnt about the job market, prepared for senior study and much, much more.
