The Year in Sustainability

2023 has been another busy year for the SAM team.  With a small but dedicated team led by Captain Matilda Ross, the award-winning Biodiversity Project has continued, largely maintaining the grounds.  Students have participated in many events on the sustainability calendar including Ride2School Day, Earth Hour, World Environment Day and International Bee Day with funds raised for bee conservation. The Sw(op) Shop was also held to divert clothing from landfill.

The Year in Mathematics

As enrolments at Merici continue to grow, we have been able to attract highly qualified and experienced Mathematics teachers, in a very competitive market. Mr. Michael Lewthwaite joined us from an international school in Malaysia and made a significant contribution to the Maths Enrichment program throughout the Year. He was joined on staff by Ms. Milanda Roxas, again a very experienced high-school Maths teacher with special expertise in inclusive education. Ms. Louisa Crockett also joined us from another school in the Catholic system and we were delighted to welcome back Mrs.

The Year in Languages

2023 has been a very exciting year for the Languages Department. We have welcomed two new staff members to our passionate team of teachers: Mr. Giuseppe Battaglia and Mrs. Tina Rodriguez. We have also welcomed back Ms. Sandy Zhai who has been working with the Chinese classes. Ms. Anna Aguizzi and Ms. Esia Grezzi, Italian Assistants with the Dante Alighieri society, have supported students in the classroom. We would like to thank all the Learning Support Assistants who work in our Language classrooms and often learn the language along with the students.

The Year in the Information Centre

Information Centre 2023

The year has flown by. It began busily as always, preparing and distributing over 3,100 textbooks within the first few weeks. Term 1 saw us engaged and celebrating being back at school, displays were created, we set up the WIDE reading program and began the database and research lessons. We also launched the new Senior Study in the old iC lab, new furniture was delivered, and seniors have a new space for quiet study.

The Year in Inclusive Education

2023 has been a year of wonderful expansive endeavours for Inclusive Education at Merici College. With the ever-growing team of professionals, we have seen The Hub, our central location, become a consistent hive of activity for students from across all year groups needing additional support. This space houses many varying aspects of improving learning for students.

The Year in Global Studies

This year, our students were out and about on a range of excursions to enrich their study of humanities and social sciences. We visited museums, parliaments and went on field trips in our local area and well beyond.

The Year in English

As English teachers at Merici College, we believe the best way that we can empower independence is to provide our students with a foundation of literacy through language and literature. It is through this study of English that we hope to guide our students as they uncover their own perspectives and develop the confidence to express themselves authentically. As such, one of our primary goals is to support our students in finding their own voice.
