2017 Semester 2 Mathematics@Merici

The Mathematics staff are excited to be back for Semester Two, 2017.

The semester has gotten off to a cracking start with over one hundred students from Years 7-12 participating in this year’s Australian Mathematics Competition. Held on the Thursday and Friday of Week 2, the competition challenged students with increasingly complex problems covering a broad range of mathematical disciplines. The girls came out of the competition buzzing about which questions were tricky, what they tried and what they would do differently in the future.

Grandparents Day - A Time to be Thankful

A very special prayer reflection and morning tea were held on Wednesday 26 July with Year 7 students and their grandparents.  The service was also in celebration of the Feast Days of Saints Joachim and Anne, grandparents of Jesus held also on 26 July. This was a wonderful opportunity for students to express their love and appreciation to their grandparents for playing such an important role in their lives. Throughout the reflection, grandparents and students shared the special memories they have experienced together.
