International Exchange Program - Student Reflections

Ella Rowe (Host) and Cynthia Zhang (Exchange Student) share their experiences about their recent participation in the exchange program.

Cynthia Zhang (Exchange Student)

On 4th February, the ten-days travel in Melbourne is over. It also means the days at Merici College and the life with Ellen’s family has started. Before I went to Australia, I already kept in contact with Ellen on email for a long time, but it’s the first time I met her father, mother and her sister Alice. They are all very kind and funny!

Merici Green Tip #7 - National Ride or Walk to School Day

This Friday, 22 March is National Ride to School Day.

Where possible please consider riding or walking to school. To our families, please consider riding or walking to work or wherever you may be going. Walking or riding part of the way is also a good compromise! 

While you are riding or walking to work or school take a few moments to consider how you might apply this on other days. Choose to ride or walk short trips, such as to your local shops, wherever possible.
