Mother's Day Prayer and Breakfast

On the morning of Monday 15 May, our College was honoured by the presence of the mothers and grandmothers of our girls. It was a wonderful opportunity for our community to celebrate Mothers’ Day with a very special Prayer and Breakfast. We were overwhelmed by the number of mums and grandmas who arrived at school with their daughters and grand-daughters. Throughout the liturgy, students wrote messages of thanks, appreciation and love to their mums and grand-mothers; recognising the important role they play in their lives.

Balgo House donate Mother's Day gifts for refugees

Over the past 2 weeks, students of Balgo House have been continuing to work in partnership with the Sisters of Mercy, Sr Frances and Sr Angela. To continue with Balgo’s willingness to give to others, Sr Angela and Sr Frances asked if we would be able to collect some small items to contribute to 10 gifts for some refugees from Iraq, for Mother’s Day this weekend. During a Friday morning assembly, Sr Angela and Sr Frances came in to meet with Balgo House to receive the gifts.

Merici College Open Day – Thank you!

We would like to acknowledge the wonderful contribution made by students which, in no small part, contributed to the success of our Open Day. Over 400 students participated in Open Day activities during the day and into the night. The students were all wonderful ambassadors for our school and we have received excellent feedback from all our visitors on your exceptional skills in conducting school tours, participating in classroom activities, and presenting dance and drama performances.

Ningil House Day celebrations

On Tuesday 2 May, the students and staff of Ningil House celebrated the inaugural Ningil House Feast Day. The day began with prayer and reflection in Morning PC, where the formation of the Ningil Mission in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea, as well as what it means to be a member of Ningil House today, were referenced. Later in the day, the House celebrated through reciting the House prayer, singing a rousing rendition of “I’m a Ningil House Kid” and sharing cake in what proved to be a most joyous atmosphere.
