2019 China Study Tour

In the April school holidays, 14 Merici students visited China for the trip of a lifetime. Accompanied by Mrs Baines and Dr Powell, the group visited Shanghai, Beijing and Xi’an. These are among the world’s biggest cities and some of the most densely populated places on Earth. They are also home to the fascinating culture of China and many World Heritage sites. The students chose to visit China to enrich their study of Chinese Language, History or Hospitality.

St Angela Merici Day inspires our students!

On Friday 31 May, College staff and students celebrated the Feast Day of Saint Angela Merici.  A special College community Mass was also held, celebrated by Fr Emil Milat and Fr Josh Scott. As this year marks 60 years since the beginning of the College, the Mass reflected on the College’s past, present and future journey from Canberra Catholic Girls’ High School in 1959, to Merici College in 2019 and beyond, with a special focus on the six Houses and the Founding Orders. Present at the Mass were Sr Angel Jordan, Sr Genny Ryan, Sr Jane Keogh and Sr Karen Muir.

St Angela Merici Festival

It was wonderful to see so many members of our community at our Festival on Saturday 1 June as one of the many faces who have moved through Merici’s doors over the last 60 years. As a future member of the Alumni, it is great to see the College’s connection with ex-students continue to grow.  

New House Crests

On Friday 31 May, as part of St Angela Merici Day and in celebration of our 60th Anniversary, new House crests were unveiled to our community. Our House Story was also presented to our community which covered the history of our Houses.


Merici teams through to National Titration Stakes

Last night the Research School of Chemistry at the ANU held the annual ACT Titration Stakes - a chemistry competition. The two Merici teams (Yr 11: Shreya Bhatnagar, Emma Howse and Ashlyn Radford; Yr 12: Jade Esler, Japneet Kaur, Rosie Zielinski) placed 2nd and 3rd respectively from 29 teams and will compete again in the nationals in Term 3.

This is great work by both teams, but particularly impressive for the Yr 11s, who only did their first titration about three weeks ago!

The displayed photo shows them with the new head of school, Professor Penny Brothers.
