Student Representation – Snowy Mountains Interschools Equestrian Competition

Chloe Richard represented Merici College in the Snowy Mountains Interschools Equestrian Competition from 27-30 April.  There were over 200 riders from across the state and riders competed in a number of disciplines including dressage, show jumping, cross-country, sporting and stock horse classes.  Chloe’s horse Apache is very new to the competition arena so they faced many challenges over the 4 days with their favourite events being cross-country and show jumping.  They came home with 3 second place ribbons and learnt a lot over the duration of the competition.

Merici Weekly Green Tip #9

This week is International Compost Awareness Week!

Did you know that as Australians, almost 50% of the waste we put in our landfill bins is compostable? You can rescue your food waste by starting a composting system at home or in the workplace. Composting is a great tool for gardeners and waste-haters alike!
