Merici College Green Tip #14 - Ditch the Scoop

Here is something that we can all do to reduce our plastic waste...

Coles has committed to removing the plastic measuring scoops from Coles Brand laundry powders.

The initiative is expected to save three tonnes of plastic in a single year. 
Use your purchasing power to support sustainability promoting initiatives. 

​A small change we can all make.

Merici staff are dedicated to teaching and learning

At Merici College, our goal is to be active role models for your daughters. Our teachers and support staff are committed to personal and professional development and are also travelling along a learning journey. We realise that learning never stops and we have teachers currently graduating and enrolled in courses. They are varied and interesting and all contribute to deepening individual knowledge, which is then shared with your daughters.

Merici College Green Tip #13 - What does your email have to do with CO2?

Spam emails, unread emails, and unwanted emails contribute to carbon emissions.

Emails, texts, and messages are stored in data centres. In 2019, 293.6 billion emails were sent per day. 

Of those 107 billion were spam emails. 

If everyone around the world deleted 10 emails, 

that would cut 39,035 metric tonnes of CO2 which is equivalent

to 19,356 tonnes of coal being burned every day. 

Solution:

Unsubscribe from emails you don’t need, 

Delete spam emails, 

Mother's Day Prayer Reflection and Lunch

On Friday 6 May, our College was honoured by the presence of more than 90 mothers, grandmothers and significant others from our Merici family. The focus of the Prayer was centred around the love of a mother and ongoing nurturing that mothers provide to their children every day. Students wrote messages of thanks, appreciation and love to their mums and significant others; recognising the important role they play in their lives. After the Prayer, guests and students enjoyed a delicious lunch prepared and served by Senior Hospitality students.

Open Day 2022 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 200 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 Science, Mathematics, Food Technology, Art and Textiles classroom activities, presenting dance. music, vocal and drama performances..

Merici College Green Tip #12 - Recycle your beauty product packaging

There is still room in the TerraCycle box for you to divert waste from landfill and drop your used makeup packaging for collection in Student Services.

Acceptable packaging includes mascara tubes, lipstick cases, eyeshadow trays, ​any makeup packaging that cannot be recycled through the kerbside collection system. 

TerraCycle is a highly awarded, international upcycling and recycling company that collects difficult-to-recycle packaging and products and repurposes the material into affordable, innovative products.
