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


On Tuesday 6 June, the Year 9 and 10 Dance students were privileged to participate in a contemporary dance workshop, led by two independent dance artists and recent graduates of the Victorian College of the Arts, Jack Riley and Olivia McPherson.

Jack and Olivia began the workshop by leading students through a warmup and a series of travelling and floor exercises. Emphasis was on activating one’s core and softening the legs to get close to the floor. The class progressed to movement phrases which were fast, fluid and connected. The students’ confidence grew as the class went on.

Memories@Merici with Nicolette Marks, Class of 2008

Up, Close and Personal with Nicolette Marks

I graduated from Merici in 2008. The values I developed over the six years I attended Merici set me on an incredible path, which exceeded all my expectations. I gained multiple academic qualifications, I studied in Iceland and New Zealand, I was the only Aussie involved in world first research in Antarctica and I have travelled to almost 80 countries. I love exploring and globetrotting, but the strong sense of loyalty and pride Merici instilled in me, always draws me back to Canberra, to my family and community

A Reflection from Sr Genny Ryan osu from the Australian Ursulines

Once upon a time……

in the year 1474 a girl named Angela Merici was born in the tiny farming village of Dezenzano situated on the shores of Lake Garda in Italy.

Now, today, the 26th May 2017, 543 years later we gather to celebrate Angela’s life and to give thanks to God for the extraordinary person she was… but Angela Merici would be quick to say “no more wonderful than each of you – the students, staff, parents and friends of Merici College, Braddon.”
