Merici College Vinnies Sleepout

Canberra’s cold temperatures did not favour Merici College Year 10, 11 and 12 students and teachers who rose to the challenge on Thursday 28 June for the annual Student Vinnies Sleepout.

The group slept outdoors in the New Quad to raise funds for Canberra’s homeless with the aim of promoting awareness within our Merici community of the issue of homelessness and for the students to experience a small part of the reality of homelessness.

World of Maths @ Merici

Numeracy is a compulsory component of our curriculum, and to make numeracy fun and relevant to our students, today the World of Maths roadshow visited our school. This was an ideal opportunity for students to see how maths is applied to some real life situations. More importantly, students were engaged in hands-on activities that catered for all ability levels and probed their problem solving skills. The students found World of Maths highly engaging and demonstrated that Maths can be fun!
