Year 12 Farewell Assembly

A FAREWELL MESSAGE TO OUR YEAR 12S

To the Graduating Class of 2019, on behalf of your teachers, staff and students of Merici College….congratulations! We would like to thank two wonderful young women who have led the College. Thank you Malia Harrison and Olivia Miles for your enthusiasm for life and vision for the future. You have been great ambassadors. Well done and congratulations. Thank you also to our 2019 Captains. We have valued your generous spirit and the gusto you have instilled in your teams and Houses.

Year 12 2019 Gift to the College honours past student Annette Taylor

At the Year 12 Farewell Assembly today, our Year 12 students presented a wonderful gift to the College, an outdoor light box. The box has the design of a blossoming tree, representing the tree of life which really comes alive when it is lit up. We chose this gift for two reasons. The first is to represent the way our wonderful school has bloomed throughout these past 60 years. The second is to honour one of our past students for which the gift is dedicated to. A young girl named Annette Taylor was just 11 when she passed away in 1975. At this time she was attending Merici College.

Merici awarded Actsmart Schools 5th Star for Water Accreditation

Merici College has attained the fifth of 5 stars in the Sustainability Accreditation Program run by the ACT Government through its Actsmart Schools Program.  Pending review in all 5 categories - Waste, Energy, Water, Biodiversity and Links to the Curriculum - we will soon be the first high school and Year 7-12 school in the ACT to be 5 star accredited.  This is a significant achievement and the result of work over the last eight years by key staff and students that has built the momentum necessary for this outstanding result. Well done!

As well as these one-day events, Merici entered teams in volleyball, netball, sailing, rowing, softball, basketball and snow sports as co-curricular weekend activities.
