Our International Baccalaureate Journey Continues

We are pleased to announce that Merici College has been accepted as a candidate school* for the Middle Years Programme (MYP). This means that we will be trialling implementation of the MYP in Years 7 and 8, January 2019, while we pursue authorization as an IB World School. IB World Schools share a common philosophy- a commitment to high-quality, challenging, international education- that we believe is important for our students. This compliments our candidacy for the IB Diploma Programme which we began in March this year and are now into the authorisation process.

 

Grandparent's Day - A Time to be Thankful!

A very special prayer reflection and morning tea were held on Tuesday 31 July with Year 7 students and their grandparents.  This was a wonderful opportunity for students to express their love and appreciation to their grandparents for playing such an important role in their lives. We would like to strengthen the bonds that already exist between our girls and their grandparents. In doing so, our girls will be well on their way to becoming successful women who love God and spread joy as they journey through life.

Year 10 Creative Voices - Aislinn McArdle's 'The Path to My Voice'

Last semester, Year 10 Creative Voices students were asked to write a sustained piece of prose fiction. This is the only class that offers students the opportunity to write extended pieces of creative writing. Over the next few weeks, we will be providing you with the opportunity to read these beautiful pieces of writing and see just how talented our girls are in English!

This week, Aislinn McArdle’s piece titled The Path to My Voice  presents a dystopian world where humans are unable to speak.

Student Achievement - 2018 Equestrian NSW Interschool State Championships

We congratulate Charly Robinson (Year 7) on her achievements at the 2018 Equestrian NSW Interschool State Championships held in Sydney.  Charly competed in the 90cm secondary class and with her placings over the 3 days, won overall champion 90cm secondary.  There were 60 competitors from across the state up to Year 12 in the 90cm class, so to win overall champion is an amazing achievement.  The win should qualify Charly for the NSW Interschools team to compete at the Australian Championships in Melbourne during October.

Did You Know That Our Waste Is Growing At Double The Rate Of Our Population?

Last year the ABC’s three-part mini series ‘WAR ON WASTE’ explored Australia’s waste problem. Tomorrow, Tuesday 24 July at 8.30pm, in the second series, Craig Reucassel investigates our reliance on single-use plastic items like plastic bottles and straws that damage our waterways and marine life.

The school services planned as part of this new network have been designed based on a new School Bus Policy. This draft policy relates to the provision of school bus services as part of Canberra’s broader public transport network, view the ACT Government draft School Bus Policy here.
