Student Achievement - Young Women Speak Out (YWSO) Program

Congratulations to Kate Connolly (Year 11) who has been accepted into the Young Women Speak Out (YWSO) project. Young Women Speak Out (YWSO) is an advocacy and campaigning program for young women. The program consists of two practical workshops to assist a group of six young women to design a progressive advocacy project or campaign on an issue important to the group. The workshops are followed by resourcing, mentoring and support to drive a campaign for change!

Duke of Edinburgh Student Experiences and Reflections

The Bush Prac weekends are designed to extend the navigation and survival skills of the Duke of Edinburgh participants and act as the practice journey towards their Bronze Award. Two weekends were held this year out at Wee Jasper, NSW. A number of new Marist and Merici students participated in hiking, river crossings and survival scenarios. They were joined by a number of older students who helped to run the weekend. Thank you to all our wonderful volunteers who make these adventures possible!

Merici Weekly Green Tip #17

Here is our green tip for the week:

Did you know….

In the A.C.T. you can recycle your disposable coffee cups!

The A.C.T. Recycling Centre has equipment designed specifically to break-down and recycle this material.

But …. KeepCups are still more environmentally friendly and a great idea for a Father’s Day gift!
