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.

Merici College Green Tip #2- Where Does Your Water Come From?

When you turn on the tap, do you consider where your water comes from? Or goes to afterwards?

https://www.iconwater.com.au/Water-and-Sewerage-System/Water-and-sewerage-system.aspx

Prior to arriving at your tap, water goes through many stages. 

First it is collected through river catchments and makes its way to our dams, which store water before it is transferred to one of our two water treatment plants.
