Green Tip #17 - Recycling Reminder


As the school term comes to an end and you start clearing out your locker and desks, keep the following in mind!

Please remember to place items in the correct bins. All plastic bottles must be empty; they can not be recycled if they contain liquid! Please put paper in the blue paper recycling bins.

The image posted demonstrates where we could make improvements.

Principal's Fortnightly Blog - Advent

Christmas is a favourite time of year in the Wholley household. It’s the one time that I go out and buy magazines to plan for the year’s Christmas menu. My daughters and I plan what decorations will go, while my husband starts making a list of all the “jobs” he is going to have to do to make our requests a reality. I have to admit we started the decorating a week early this year on the Feast of Christ the King. However, it is this Sunday that we begin the season of Advent and celebrate the Church’s “New Year”.

Students from Year 7-12 modelled their designs in Fashion and Textilesand the Merici College Dance Troupe performed five wonderful routines that showcase their diversity. The Choir were outstanding as they performed a vocal piece.

It was a tremendous evening, very well attended by parents and families and they were a very appreciative audience.There were approximately 90 students involved in the various music ensembles: Choir, Junior and Senior Band. Jazz Band and String ensemble. All the bands and solo performers sounded so great  - it was a very entertaining evening and we certainly have an abundance of extremely talented students at Merici.
