Merici College Green Tip #28 - Is there a good fish?

Fishing is one of the most significant causes of declines in ocean wildlife populations. 

Catching fish is not inherently bad for the ocean, except when fish are overfished, meaning that fish are caught faster than stocks can replenish.

The number of overfished stocks globally has tripled in half a century. One-third of the world's assessed fisheries are currently pushed beyond their biological limits, according to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations. 

Student Achievement - Caelan Edghill crowned State Champion in Year 9 Division of 2021 Australian History Competition

Congratulations to Caelan Edghill who has been crowned State Champion for the ACT in the Year 9 division of the 2021 Australian History Competition. Merici students entered the competition in May, an exam-based test which demands of students an excellent level of historical knowledge and skills. Congratulations to Caelan, a deserving winner of this medal, and a promising historian.

 

R U OK? Day

This week we will be participating in R U OK? Day on Thursday, 9 September which is a national day of action where Australians are reminded that every day is the day to ask, “are you okay?” if someone they know is struggling. Whilst working in lockdown, checking in on one another’s wellbeing is more important than ever.

Year 12 COVID-19 Vaccination Program

Dear Parents, Carers and Year 12 students

The ACT Government has announced that year 12 students have been prioritised for the  COVID-19 vaccination.

This year continues to be a challenging time for our families and students as we all strive to support our young people to complete their schooling journey. As parents and carers, you understand how significant having the opportunity to complete senior secondary studies is to year 12 students. This includes practical assessments and AST tests.

Father's Day Celebration Video 2021

Happy Father’s Day to all our fathers or other father figures (such as stepfather, grandfather, uncle or close family friend)! Each year around Father’s Day, we host a Father-Daughter Mass and Dinner. Due to current restrictions, we have had to cancel the usual celebration and instead, to celebrate the father figures in our students’ lives, we have put together a virtual reflection video to the fathers in the Merici community, to thank them and celebrate their impact on their daughters’ lives.

Merici College Green Tip #27 - Grow Your Own Lettuces - Support our Student Lettuce Sale!

In addition to supporting our students, growing your own lettuce provides many sustainability benefits:
