The Year in Global Studies

The Global Studies Department at Merici is unique in that it houses a wide variety of subjects across the Humanities and Technologies learning areas. As an IB school, our students enjoy rich inquiry-based learning across both curriculum areas, grounded in real world contexts and supported by our work in Catalyst High Impact Teaching Practices.

The Year in English

That is part of the beauty of all literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong.” (F. Scott Fitzgerald)

The Year in Creative and Performing Arts

The Creative and Performing Arts (CAPA) Department has enjoyed a year of refreshment and excitement. In February, we welcomed a new visual art teacher, Ms. April Croft, to our team and she has inspired the students to create some remarkable art works this year. We also welcomed Mr. Jason Kohlman, who has been sharing his knowledge and passion for Media with the Year 9 and 10 students.

Thousands of year 12 students have discovered their ATAR scores this week, bringing an end to their high school careers.

But the university entrance score is not as crucial as it once was, with many students receiving early offers or choosing to take a break from academia.

Principal's Christmas Letter to the Community

Serviam

Our community knows, that as people of God, we are called to activate our hearts, heads and hands to further the welfare of those around us. We are continually being invited to walk in Jesus’ footsteps and be inspired by His model of servant leadership, most beautifully conveyed to us in the moment when He washed the feet of His followers, not long before He died in order to save all of us.
