Merici College Green Tip #1 - Welcome and the yellow bin....

Welcome to 2024!

The weekly Green Tip is intended to share ideas about how you can reduce your environmental footprint at school, home and work.

This term the focus is on waste.  In particular, reducing waste to landfill.

At Merici you can use the yellow bins, the same as the yellow bins at home, to recycle:

✔️ glass bottles and jars – clean and empty
✔️ plastic bottles and containers – clean, empty and lids removed
✔️ steel and aluminium cans – clean and empty
✔️ paper – not shredded
✔️ cardboard – flattened

2023 ACT BSSS Recognition of Excellence Ceremony

The ACT Board of Senior Secondary Studies (BSSS) Recognition of Excellence Ceremony is a prestigious award ceremony. Awards are given in five categories: Community Services, Vocational Studies, Academic Excellence, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Academic Achievement. These awards were presented at the Canberra Theatre on Monday 11 December. 

We would like to congratulate the recipients receiving the following awards and commend them for their exceptional dedication to their studies.

The Year in Science

The pre-pandemic vibe of the Merici Science Department started to return in 2023, as events returned to face to face and more external science activities opened up for our students.

We welcomed St. Joesph and St. Thomas Mores Primary Schools to the College for Big Sister Science Days with our Year 9 students. This gave the primary school students an authentic experience; to conduct experiments in a laboratory using a range of equipment and explore sustainability all under the guidance of the older students, who got to share their science and teaching skills.
