Merici College Showcase 2017

Creativity is about human expression and communicating deeply. It is a gift where every artist desires to share a glimpse into part of themselves. Merici College celebrates the artistic gifts and talents of our students throughout the year but especially at our annual Showcase Exhibition.

Our students are creative risk takers, they day-dream and work hard to craft the product that tells the story they want to be told in the medium they choose to explain the mystery of life, and the adventure we are all on.

Year 10 Christian Service Week

We are continuing our Christian Service Learning Program this year with a Christian Service Week involving all Year 10 students from Monday 20 November to Friday 24 November, 2017 inclusive. Students will be required to volunteer at various agencies throughout the Canberra region.  

Merici Building Works Update

Building work is progressing very well with the refurbishment to the Auditorium and Science Labs.

We are currently the proud owners of a very large and very deep hole in the auditorium. It is where the platform lift / orchestra pit is being installed, and will also be the means by which we can store chairs in bulk under the stage. This will free up valuable floor-space in the auditorium itself, as well as solve a number of WHS issues in the process.
