Minister Cash launches the 2018 Australian Job Publication

Senior Business and Legal Studies students welcomed Minister Cash to the College who launched the 2018 edition of Australian Jobs. The publication provides an overview of trends in the Australian labour market to support job seekers and providers, careers advisers, those considering future training and work and people interested in labour market issues.

Minister Cash presented an overview of the Australian labour market to the students, in particular focusing on job opportunities for young women.

We would like to thank Minister Cash for spending time with the girls.

ANZAC March and Service at Queanbeyan

Merici College took part in this year's ANZAC Day March and Ceremony, continuing a long tradition. We were represented by a strong contingent of students and staff and, as always, our girls represented our school with style and dignity. One of the special aspects of this year's ceremony was that it was our turn to deliver the student address. Each year a representative from either Queanbeyan High, Karabar High, St Edmund's College or Merici College has the great honour of presenting a speech about what ANZAC Day means to them.

She also competed at Ice Zoo Artistic Mascot NSW on Sunday 8th April also representing the ACT and placed 1st.

Merici ex-student ACT Young Woman of the Year talks to students about leadership

 We would like to thank Caitlin Figueiredo for speaking to our Student Representative Council (SRC) members at their Leadership Day today. Caitlin spoke about the importance of giving and compromise when you are a leader and the ability to see the ‘big picture’ and to make 'big dreams'. Her presentation was an inspiration to all our students. Caitlin also had the opportunity of visiting her old PC classroom, Ningil 6, now a renovated science lab! We look forward to seeing Caitlin back at Merici in August.
