Merici Green Tip #25 - How to make your household sponge better for your wallet and the environment...

It was recently pointed out to me that what I do at home is not common practice and that it would be beneficial to share this knowledge to increase the environmental savings.  So, I wash my household sponges in the dishwasher at the end of the day along with the days dishes.

Tips, tricks, life hacks... whatever you want to call them, they will reduce your environmental impact and save you money by keeping your household items working better for longer.

Merici Green Tip #24 - What does the Pope say about climate change?

Exemplifying the positive and far-reaching role that faith organizations can play in the global effort to lower emissions, the Pope has called for the de-carbonization of the global economy and urges investment in clean and renewable energy to protect the world's oceans and ecological systems  for "the common good of the entire human family."

Academic Awards Semester 1 2020

On Tuesday 11 August the Merici College school community celebrated the academic achievements of students in Semester 1, 2020 with over 300 students receiving awards that highlight their effort and joy of learning.

Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 restrictions, we were unable to hold our Academic Awards ceremonies as normal this semester and conducted the ceremonies via live stream through our Merici College YouTube channel.
