Merici Weekly Green Tip #24 - Sam's Guide to an Eco-Friendly Festive Season

S.A.M’s GUIDE TO AN ECO-FRIENDLY FESTIVE SEASON

Christmas in the Wide Brown Land conjures up imagery of Santa delivering presents in his boardies, Paul Kelly making gravy (don’t forget tomato sauce for the sweetness/tang factor), and families gathering under Eucalyptus in blistering temps for lunch on the 25th. Not many sleigh bells, festive jumpers, or toasty fireplaces. But there is one seasonal stereotype we do share with our Northern Hemisphere neighbours – indulgence.

Congratulations Year 12 Students!

Congratulations to our Year 12 students on their graduation and academic achievements. We would like to thank the students for their valuable contribution to the life of Merici College and wish them success and happiness in all their future endeavours.

We would like to acknowledge the academic achievements of all our students and congratulate Cameron Jackson awarded 2017 Merici College Dux and Ellen Court, Proxime Accessit.

Nutrition Australia Grant for Beeswax Wrap-Making Workshops

In October, Merici was awarded a Nude Food Week grant from Nutrition Australia to run two beeswax wrap-making workshops. Last week, we were lucky enough to have Gaby from the Canberra Environment Centre facilitating the workshops, where we learnt about preventing plastic use in the kitchen and made some beeswax wraps.
