Merici celebrates International Women's Day .... strength as women!

Today we are celebrating International Women's Day. International Women's Day  is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for moving towards gender parity (International Women’s Day website).

All staff and students received a white lapel ribbon today - wear this with pride! The white ribbon represents our symbol for the year, the white lily/fleur de lis and celebrates our strength as women.

Project Compassion - supporting Caritas

Merici College is once again supporting Caritas Australia's Project Compassion Lenten fundraising and awareness-raising appeal. Starting on Ash Wednesday, students have been asked to donate their spare change to their Pastoral class Project Compassion collection box. Each Friday afternoon for four weeks, and the final Thursday of Term 1, House tallies are being recorded. College Cup points will be awarded after the final collection on Thursday 11 April. The overall aim is for Merici College to support Caritas Australia's initiatives (see posters attached).

STUDENT REFLECTION - WAATI SCHOLARSHIP TO ITALY

It has now been 3 weeks since arriving back from Italy, and there hasn't been a day that has gone past where I have not mentioned aspects of my incredible experience.  
I had just completed my year 12 exams, and the next thing I knew, I was on a plane to Perth, not knowing what the future had installed for me, but I was simply excited by the idea of immersing myself in a culture which I love so deeply.

'Fidelitas' Opening School Mass

The Merici College school community welcomed parents, friends and representatives from our Colleges, Primary schools and Catholic Education at their Opening School Mass on Tuesday 26 February. The Mass was celebrated by principal celebrant Fr Josh Scott with Fr Emil Milat, Rev Simon Falk and Fr Loi Viovicente who assisted him. The Merici community embraced their 2019 College theme, Fidelitas as they celebrated their mission and vision of building a loving community that is strong in faith.  

International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme Assessment and Reporting Workshop

We would like to thank our Year 7 and 8 families for attending our workshop and participating in the activities on Monday 25 February. The workshop provided information to parents and students about how the IB trial MYP has changed our approach to assessment at Merici. The session provided an overview of the MYP philosophy, focusing on concept-based learning and how we are applying the MYP framework at our college, including an explanation of the new rubrics and how assessment tasks will be structured.

Student Achievement - Raechel McKinnon

We congratulate Raechel McKinnon (Year 8) on her selection into the 2019 U14 Girls’ Australian Diamonds Squad. As part of the development program, Raechel will be participating in a tour to Auckland, New Zealand from 15-23 April 2019. This tour has been specifically designed to expose players to international softball, with games scheduled against local New Zealand teams in an Auckland-based tournament, together with training days.

Wishing you lots of success Raechel!
