Merici College Green Tip #10 - Happy Easter and......

Happy Easter!

Did you know:

  • Australians produce 540kg of household waste per person, each year. 
  • That's more than 10kg for every single person, every single week. 
  • Of the estimated 67 million tonnes of waste Australians generated in 2017, just 37 was recycled, leaving 21.7 disposed of in landfill. 
  • It's estimated about 130,000 tonnes of Australian plastic ends up in our waterways and oceans each year.

Clean Up Our Waste

What can you do?

Palm Sunday Rally for Refugees

Thank you to our staff and students who attended the Palm Sunday Refugees Rally yesterday and supporting this important moment in our community to come together to speak out for justice for people seeking asylum. #justice4refugees #communitas #empoweringindependence


Merici College Green Tip #9 - What goes in the yellow recycling bin?

At school, home and work in the ACT look for yellow bins. Into these bins, please put only glass jars and bottles, plastic containers, cans, paper and cardboard.

Nothing else and definitely no food or soft plastics.

Thanks for doing your part to reduce waste to landfill.

Student Exchange Experience - Gabrielle Shoebridge

What made you apply for an exchange program?

Way back in 2014, when I was in Year 2, my family went on a ‘big trip’ around Europe – we spent a week in Berlin, and I was hooked (looking back, it was probably the colourful, life-size bear statues we ran into wherever we went). I’ve been taking German lessons ever since. The more I learned about the language and culture, the more I craved to be there, in Germany, surrounded by it all – an exchange seemed like the perfect opportunity for me.

Merici College Green Tip #8 - Have you got leftovers?

What do you do when you have leftover food?

According to foodbank.org.au:

In Australia, 7.6 million tonnes of food is wasted every year. 

While 70% of this food is still perfectly edible, 1 in 6 Australian adults haven’t had enough to eat in the last year. 

On top of this, 1.2 million children have gone hungry during the same period.

So what should you do with leftover food?

Big Sister Science Day

It was wonderful having Year 6 students from St Joseph's Primary School attend our Big Sister Science Day today.

The Year 6 students joined our Year 9 Science classes to support their classroom learning as they are currently studying volcanos. Our Year 9 students assisted the students in exploring Earth Science activities,rotating around 8 stations. This also included a demo volcano experiment with dry ice and warm water! The students also participated in a Sustainability class, planting seedlings and visiting our kitchen garden.
