Merici College Green Tip #9 - How To Have a Low or Zero Waste and Ethical Easter

​It is possible...

As with all things zero waste, it is best to be prepared to avoid the waste that holidays tend to bring.

Leaving your Easter egg buying to the last minute and rushing to the nearest supermarket will most likely result in buying plastic wrapped, palm oil containing holiday treats for family and friends.

There are options to buy better Easter eggs and other treats instead!

IB Middle Years Programme (IMB) Student Reflection

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?     

London, I love the art and culture there and the transport to Europe by train.

What are your favourite subject groups to study in the MYP?     

The Arts

Language and Literature

What do you like about these subject groups?     

The arts show a reflection of society and how culture has evolved. I love English because I can apply my skills in everyday life.

Merici College Green Tip #9 - Zero Waste Revolution - Saturday 30 April

Any further delay in concerted global action will miss a brief and rapidly closing window to secure a "livable future" according to the Panel's co-chair.
In particular, Australia will suffer greater climate impacts than any other advanced economy. 

So if you want to take action for your livable future:

The Festival will be held on Saturday 30 April 2022, in the Kambri Precinct of ANU.

The theme of this year's festival is: 

One Person, a World of Difference

Harmony Day Picnic Lunch

Thanks everyone for celebrating Harmony Day at Merici College today. We thoroughly enjoyed our Picnic Lunch on the oval with each friendship group preparing food which is distinctive to their family heritage to share with the rest of their lunch group. A multicultural feast!! The picnic was a great way to give each other an insight into our family’s culture and beliefs. #harmonyday2022 #mericifamily #mericipride

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

Norway. Norway is one of the most progressive countries in the world. Higher education is free and it's a very safe country for people of all backgrounds.
