Merici Year 7/8 Softtball team awarded ACT Schools Champions

Like all great sporting stories, the Merici 7/8 Softball win in the ACT Schools Carnival began with the odds stacked squarely against it…

A month out from the tournament we didn’t even have enough players, so the girls were told they had some work to do if they wanted to compete in the carnival. Undeterred, the girls just got to work organising themselves, gathering in more players, showing up to every training and working hard to make sure they could field a team. And a little seed was planted.

2017 International Women's Day Dinner

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Celebrated on March 8, the day marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. The theme for this year was #BeBoldForChange and to support this special occasion, Merici College held a dinner on Thursday 9 March in the restaurant.


Where our students are going…..

This report was focussed on the Year 12 Graduating Class of 2016 cohort. The data was obtained from a Destinations Survey sent out to all students in mid-late January, after the main round offers for university placement.

The student survey related to:

  • Plans for 2017 - categorised into further study, full time employment and a Gap year
  • Plans for 2018-if they were taking a Gap year
  • Type of study
  • Institution of study


Balgo House Charity

In 2016 Balgo House started a partnership with the Mercy Works organisation. Mercy Works support long term development projects, where the needs of people who are denied access to basic resources like education and health care are urgent, in Australia and the South-East Asia Pacific. In their House Week 2016, students of Balgo House committed themselves to fundraising for the Mercy Works, where all donations went to a preschool on Bathurst Island.
