This morning, Friday 1 June, College staff and students celebrated the Feast Day of Saint Angela Merici.  The celebratory activities commenced in Pastoral Care with students gifting a ‘bracelet of joy’ to another student in their PC group, which included a ‘JOY’ charm, embracing our #YearofYouth #SpredingJoy theme for the year. Students remembered St Angela as an educator of women from all classes of society.

Green Tip #12 Eating Seasonal Produce

Did you know that eating seasonal produce is better for your wallet, the environment and your health?

Your wallet: Seasonal produce is cheaper because the costs of producing it are lower (because plants require less time, labour and intervention from humans to grow efficiently when the season is on their side!).

The environment: Eating fruits and vegetables that are in season locally means that food doesn’t have to travel as far to get on your plate, reducing the emissions associated with transporting that produce.

Deputy Principals from South Korea visit Merici Sustainability as part of their training

On Monday the 7th and 14th of May Merici hosted groups of Deputy Principals from South Korea. The visit was part of their university training to qualify as a school principal. The training requires them to visit schools in another country. Their specific purpose in visiting Merici was to look at the Kitchen Garden. Fiona Buining (Sustainability Teacher) and Bec De Courcy (Sustainability Officer) talked to the group about the garden via the competent translator, Jae, who had organised the tour schedule. They loved our garden and spent significant time looking at the plants growing.
