Year 12 commence final week of classes!

As our Year 12s commence their final week of classes with us, we give thanks to God:

For all the teaching and learning that has taken place in our school,

both in and out of the classroom.

 

For the talents and gifts that have been shared and

the challenges that have been faced.

 

For the respect and care that has been given to each and every one of our Year 12s.

We give thanks for the friendships that have just begun and for those that have grown over time.

 

Memories@Merici 50th Reunion of the Class of 1967

Over the weekend of 27-28 October 2017, the Class of 1967 gathered in Canberra to catch up and celebrate 50 years of life since our school graduation. We were privileged to have three of the nuns who taught us join in the celebrations. Mother Anita our Head Teacher, Sister Angela Mary (affectionately known as Sam) who taught us Mathematics and Sister Eugene who taught us Ancient History.  Class members travelled from Queensland, South Australia, Victoria and New South Wales to join their Canberra cohorts.

We also have several co-curricular sporting teams, Netball, Basketball, Volleyball, Hockey, Futsal and Snow Sports that compete in ACT and NSW weekend competitions.

Year 9 Urban Challenge - Student Reflection

The Urban Challenge was a once in a lifetime experience. Amidst selfies with dogs and never-ending barbeque line-ups Year 9 had heaps of fun but also learnt about the importance of teamwork and co-operation. Each team role was challenging in its own way and everyone had to work together to reach each day’s goals. It also taught us how to work in a group with people that we did not necessarily know.

The feast of All Saints Day

Today we celebrate the feast of All Saints Day. It recognises all those who have entered heaven, including saints who are recognised by the Church and those who are not.

In the New Testament letters and throughout the early Church, the word “saint” was used for anyone who has trying to live as a committed Christian and follow the teachings of Jesus Christ.

All Saints Day reminds us of our own potential. Of what might become of us if we choose the path of faith, hope and love.

 

Movember Fair

Each year Merici College holds an event in support of Movember. This year a Movember Fair will be held at lunch-time in the Indigenous Garden with lots of wonderful stalls and activities for the students. The event is aimed at raising money for programs run directly by the Movember Foundation addressing health issues faced by men in the areas of prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health and suicide prevention.  Please support this most important cause.
