Counsellor's Corner - Settling into School

It’s been a busy start to the school year and we hope that all students are starting to settle in to their new routines and schedules. As we begin to embark on our academic journey together, we thought that it would be a good time to remind students and their families of some good study habits to set themselves up well to achieve their goals.

Merici College Green Tip #2 - Our biodiversity restoration project will look like this in 5 years time!

The photo displayed is from the Fowles Street park in Weston which is the inspiration for our project here at Merici.

This was begun only five years ago by Alice Hathorn from ACT Urban Woodland Rescue who is guiding our project.

Valuable ecosystem services have been restored and 12 species of butterfly have returned to the area.

We are looking forward to seeing our hard work translate into the same beautiful outcome!

Opening School Mass

As Merici College family we gathered yesterday, Wednesday 15 February, to celebrate our 2023 Opening School Mass.

This is a new beginning with fresh hopes and unknown possibilities. Maybe even some concerns are emerging in our hearts.So how will we embrace what may unfold for us, day by day.

Our school theme for 2023, Communitas will guide us on our journey. We are encouraged to reflect on the inclusiveness of our community and the relationships that we have with one another.

The Theologian: Bernard Lonergan reminds us:

Help raise funds for Türkiye and Syria - this Friday 17 February

As many people would know, Türkiye and Syria have been struck by a devastating 7.8 magnitude earthquake. Thousands of deaths have been reported in Türkiye and Syria and the death toll is increasing by the hour. Freezing winter weather is only adding to the devastation, as the thousands left injured, trapped or homeless are stuck in bitter cold and rain.

Merici College will be having a uniform free day (with a suggestion of wearing red items of clothing or accessories in solidarity with the country's national colours).
