What our parents are saying about Merici!

We recently asked our parent community what they like most about Merici College. Here's what they had to say:

The culture at Merici was what attracted us to enrol our daughter. The school environment is very inclusive and provides opportunities for students to achieve. The students are well-balanced, and our two enrolled daughters are very happy to be part of the Merici community. Year 7 Parent

My daughters thoroughly enjoy participating in the numerous co-curricular activities on offer at the College. Year 9 Parent


On Tuesday 6 June, the Year 9 and 10 Dance students were privileged to participate in a contemporary dance workshop, led by two independent dance artists and recent graduates of the Victorian College of the Arts, Jack Riley and Olivia McPherson.

Jack and Olivia began the workshop by leading students through a warmup and a series of travelling and floor exercises. Emphasis was on activating one’s core and softening the legs to get close to the floor. The class progressed to movement phrases which were fast, fluid and connected. The students’ confidence grew as the class went on.
