Merici College Green Tip #17 - World Environment Day

Today our school community reflected on World Environment Day and the importance of ‘Celebrating Biodiversity’.

The foods we eat, the air we breathe, the water we drink and the climate that makes our planet habitable all come from nature.

Yet, these are exceptional times in which nature is sending us a message:
To care for ourselves we must care for nature. 

It’s time to wake up. To take notice. To raise our voices.
It’s time to build back better for People and Planet.

Why Merici for College?

Why Merici for College? Merici College provides many opportunities to our senior students. With our guidance and support we are committed to assisting Year 11 and Year 12 students to successfully complete courses that inspire and challenge them and hold them in an excellent position for the future.

#FeelGoodFriday with our Junior Students

We have had a great week with our Year 7 and 8s returning to school and look forward to welcoming back our Year 9 and 10s next Tuesday to be together as one whole community again.

How did your week go?

It’s been fantastic seeing all my friends and teachers again and getting back to routine. (Olivia, Year 8)

National Reconciliation Week #InThisTogether2020

In 2020 Reconciliation Australia marks twenty years of shaping Australia’s journey towards a more just, equitable and reconciled nation.

Much has happened since the early days of the people’s movement for reconciliation, including greater acknowledgement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander rights to land and sea; understanding of the impact of government policies and frontier conflicts; and an embracing of stories of Indigenous success and contribution.

National Sorry Day

Today is National Sorry Day – 26 May. National Sorry Day is a significant day for all Australians, especially Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities across the nation. National Sorry Day marks the anniversary of the tabling in Federal Parliament of the Bringing Them Home Report of the National Inquiry into the Separation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children from Their Families, on 26 May 1997.

Merici Green Tip #14 - The Story of Plastic

On Friday 22 May from 2pm, you’re invited to a special online screening of THE STORY OF PLASTIC, a new  documentary film by Deia Schlosberg which exposes the local and global environmental,  climate, justice, and health impacts of the plastic industry.  The film aired on the Discovery  Channel on Wednesday 22 April at 2pm ET/PT in honour of Earth Day, and is available on demand at Discovery Go.  But Merici has organized an additional screening  to make it available to wider audiences and let groups in the growing plastic resistance  movement interact with the filmmakers and film subjects.
