Karinya House Bridge Benefit Dinner - A Huge Success!

This event is in its fourth year running and was initiated three years ago by two staff members, Trish Young and Tookie Capezio, as a way of broadening the experiences of Senior Hospitality students. It also gives the students with the opportunity of providing a service to those members in our community who need our help most.  On behalf of all the Merici College community, we commend Trish, Tookie and the students on their wonderful endeavours, and congratulate them for the first-class, degustation menu that they prepared on Saturday night.

Please note the program doesn’t include appliances (like toasters) or consumer electronics (like DVD players). Keep your drop-offs limited to the list above please!

Stress on the other hand can feel negative, and can make it harder to us to complete tasks and study.

Some signs you may be feeling stressed are:
