What our parents are saying about Merici!

We recently asked our parent community what they like most about Merici College. Here's what they had to say:

The culture at Merici was what attracted us to enrol our daughter. The school environment is very inclusive and provides opportunities for students to achieve. The students are well-balanced, and our two enrolled daughters are very happy to be part of the Merici community. Year 7 Parent

My daughters thoroughly enjoy participating in the numerous co-curricular activities on offer at the College. Year 9 Parent
