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…..
