Merici College Green Tip #11 - International Earth Day

Welcome back to Term 2!

While we were on holidays, it was International Earth Day on April 22nd. A timely moment to reflect on the business climate, the political climate, and how to act on the climate challenge. 

Now is the time to preserve and protect our health, our families, our livelihoods, our food security and our biodiversity.

In honour of Earth Day 2022,  act (boldly), innovate (broadly), and implement (equitably). 

It’s going to take all of us. 

All in. 

ANZAC Assembly 2022

Today, Wednesday 27 April, Merici College held a very special Anzac Assembly. The assembly provided the community with the opportunity to pause and remember the men and women who have served in Australia’s Defence Force, honouring their memory. In particular we celebrated our theme Serving our Community. It was an honour to welcome our guest speaker, Captain Kate Ryan, Royal Australian Navy. Captain Ryan entered the Royal Australian Navy via ADFA in 1990 and trained as a Maritime Warfare Officer.

What Makes Merici College Unique? Every child is known!

We challenge our students to take risks within and beyond the classroom to achieve individual academic excellence. We do this through our Catholic values, a strong sense of community, pastoral care and support, our international standard of academic achievement, our diverse  co-curricular offering and the personalised attention and care that every student needs.

Easter Liturgy

Today our community celebrated The Way of the Cross in a COVID safe style. Each year group moved around the school, reflecting on the Stations of the Cross. We reflected on the significance of each Station and how this relates to our contemporary world today.
