Student Achievement - Jorga Jongeneel's role investing the Governor General as Chief Scout of Australia

During the holidays, Jorja Jongeneel (Year 7) had the privilege of being selected as one of a small group of Scouts who invested the Governor General, His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd), as Chief Scout of Australia. The ceremony was held at Government House on 2 October and Jorja had the honour of presenting the Governor General with his name badge. This event is also special as it only happens around every 5 years when Australia has a new Governor General. #mericipride

Merici College Green Tip #31 - ACT Healthy Waterways

This week’s Green Tip has been written by Imogen Simmons.

In Week 10 of Term 3, SAM had a guest speaker come in to talk about ACT Healthy Waterways and why it is important for Canberra to have healthy waterways.

So why is it important for Canberra to have healthy water?

The water in Canberra’s suburban creeks, wetlands and ponds mostly comes from stormwater and run-off from residential blocks, streets, retail and industrial areas. This water ends up in our lakes and rivers, largely untreated.

Uniform Shop

Merici College operates a uniform shop on the school premises. The shop is located at the front office. All uniform items are supplied to the College by PSW. Since 1990 PSW Pty. Ltd. has been one of Australia’s leading direct-to-school suppliers of quality School Uniforms for primary and secondary schools. PSW Company Mission is to create schoolwear customers who are so satisfied with the range, quality, service and value that they will choose PSW brands as their first preference and will recommend them to others.

Merici College Green Tip #30 - Stop Climate Change

According to the Australian Conservation Foundation 350,000 people nationwide participated in last Friday’s student-led #ClimateStrike  the biggest climate mobilisation in Australia’s history.
