Student Achievement - Brooke Ellis

We are very proud to say that our wonderful Year 8 student, Brooke Ellis competed at the 2019 ENSW State Interschools Championships, held at the Sydney International Equestrian Centre (SIEC).

On Sunday 10  March,  Brooke and TS Sir Donn (Donny) competed in the Secondary Elementary (Years 7-12) Dressage Championship, placing 3rd in their first test (3B) and 1st in their second test (3C), giving them enough points to be sashed overall Elementary Champions.

100% hOPE ...Giving children a future and a hope!

The 100% Hope Choir’s performance at Merici College was inspirational. The enthusiasm of the audience was as infectious as the passion and energy of the 9 Ugandan students who danced, drummed and sang their way into the hearts of our students. The message of Hope was subtle, no preaching, just story telling. We feel privileged to have had the honour of hosting the choir and will certainly do it again. Our only regret is that the whole school was not able to see it.

Merici celebrates Maths Pi Day

Thank you to St Thomas More's Primary and Rosary Primary who joined in our Pi Day celebrations on Friday 15 March. Over the past two days we have enjoyed exploring the number Pi and other areas of mathematics through a range of hands on, individual and group activities. Students rotated around stations for a 45-minute session run by Mathematics staff and students.

Our Challenge, Our Hope

Dear Merici College Community

Like many Catholics, over the past years and weeks, I have struggled to express my feelings, thoughts and reactions to the abuse of power, privilege and position by members of the Catholic Church, including Pell’s guilty verdict. 

I personally, have found it difficult to comprehend how such horrendous crimes have occurred. My prayer life has also been put to test, yet I believe that these challenges can only be eased by praying with an open and trusting heart.

International Women’s Day - Strength as Women!

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Celebrated on March 8, the day marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. The theme for this year was #BalanceforBetter and to support this special occasion, the Merici community received a white lapel ribbon representing the College’s symbol for the year, the white lily/fleur de lis to wear with pride, as well as hosting an IWB Strength as Women cocktail party.

Merici Green Tip #6 - Our SAMs

A record number of students have signed up to be part of the Sustainability at Merici (SAM) Group. Almost ninety students signed up last Thursday at our Activities Expo, more than 10% of the student population. A reflection of the growing awareness of urgent action on climate change and environmental protection! Enjoy our photos from our Activities Expo. Well done to Gabby Cox, our Sustainability Captain for her efforts in organising the stall and speaking to our students.

IWD Principal's Blog

I am a proud graduate of a Catholic, all-girls school. I attended St Brigid’s College in Lesmurdie in WA from Kindy to Year 12 and last year celebrated my graduating class’s 30th reunion.

I am now the proud principal of a Catholic, all-girls school. At Merici we support every student, academically, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially, in their endeavour to create a pathway where they can try, fail, learn, succeed and celebrate.
