Counsellor's Corner - October is Mental Health Month

Welcome back to our students and families - I hope you are all feeling refreshed and ready to embark on the last leg of the 2022 school year!

Before we plough into what is sure to be a very busy and exciting term, I invite you to take a moment to reflect on the status of your wellbeing and to draw attention to any areas that could do with improvement.

Our wellbeing is the balance of our physical, mental, social, and emotional health. When we take care of these aspects of our lives, we build a positive sense of self and support our mental health.

Counsellor's Corner - Taking care of your wellbeing these school holidays

As a busy Term 3 draws to a close and the perks of having two weeks break edges closer, the Merici Community looks forward to a period of rest, recovery, and rejuvenation. It is important to take this time as an opportunity to slow down, breathe and prepare to finish the year off with some positive Merici flair. 

Merici College Green Tip #30 - It's National Biodiversity Month

September is National Biodiversity Month.

Biodiversity is the variety of all life forms on earth – the different plants, animals and micro-organisms, and the ecosystems that are their homes.

Here at Merici we are continuing with the Biodiversity Restoration and Re-Wilding Project. 

Why does this matter?

Australia is one of a group of only 17 ‘mega-diverse’ countries. These mega-diverse countries cover less than 10% of the world’s area but have more than 70% of its biodiversity.

International Day of Peace, “End Racism – Build Peace”

Today, we join the efforts of the United Nations by advocating a world free of racism and discrimination. We start here, in our classrooms, in all we do and say, in our hearts. We want a world where  “compassion and empathy overcome suspicion and hatred”.  The 2022 theme of the International Day of Peace is “End Racism – Build Peace”.
