GRADUATING CLASS OF 2016 DESTINATIONS REPORT

Where our students are going…..

This report was focussed on the Year 12 Graduating Class of 2016 cohort. The data was obtained from a Destinations Survey sent out to all students in mid-late January, after the main round offers for university placement.

The student survey related to:

  • Plans for 2017 - categorised into further study, full time employment and a Gap year
  • Plans for 2018-if they were taking a Gap year
  • Type of study
  • Institution of study

Destinations

Balgo House Charity

In 2016 Balgo House started a partnership with the Mercy Works organisation. Mercy Works support long term development projects, where the needs of people who are denied access to basic resources like education and health care are urgent, in Australia and the South-East Asia Pacific. In their House Week 2016, students of Balgo House committed themselves to fundraising for the Mercy Works, where all donations went to a preschool on Bathurst Island.

Ash Wednesday

Today as a school community we celebrate Ash Wednesday which is the first day of the season of Lent. Throughout the morning, blessed ashes were marked on the foreheads of our students and staff in the form of a cross. The smudge mark made by the ashes is a visible reminder of the commitment we enter into during Lent and of the forgiveness and strength which is the gift of Jesus to each of us.

St Vincent de Paul Door Knock Appeal

Merici College students participated in the St Vincent de Paul Doorknock Appeal on 15th February. 30 students went out into Ainslie and Campbell to raise money for the support services the St Vincent de Paul Society provides to the Canberra community. Despite feeling nervous, these students rose to the challenge and returned with stories about the surprising generosity they encountered.
