Merici College Green Tip #32 - National Water Week and Water Night

This week is National Water Week, October 19-25.

Every third week of October, the Australian Water Association organises National Water Week and makes a splash across Australia, inspiring individuals, communities and organisations to build awareness around the importance of water. Access to clean water is crucial to our daily lives, and we are all responsible for protecting our water environments and using water wisely.

Merici College Green Tip #31 - What does 2040 Producer Damon Gameau say?

Q: What does 2040 Producer Damon Gameau say?

A: We are on the precipice of peril and possibility at the same time.

Damon is referring to the climate crisis.  

In the final week of Term 3 our students joined Daramalan for a live Q&A with Damon to follow up on what has happened since he made the film 2040 which was screened to the entire Merici student body in 2019.

Damon updated us on several of the sustainability promoting solutions in the film including microgrids, 3D ocean farming and vertical ocean farming of seaweed.

Kate Durham appointed Head of Junior School

Merici College welcomes Kate Durham to the College from 2021 and wishes her every success in her role as Head of Junior School. Kate comes to Merici with over 20 years of teaching experience in Catholic and Independent Schools. She is currently Head of House at Canberra Girls Grammar School and previous to this, was a Pastoral Care Coordinator and HPE Coordinator at St Mary MacKillop College.

Inspiring Dusted Off Performance

Today our Year 10 students were treated to a wonderful performance by Brett Hunt, a one-man show called Dusted Off. Dusted Off is the story of youth seeking adventure and of the traumatic reality of war, for those who fight and for those who support them. Accomplished actor and guitarist Brett Hunt shared his family’s story about the Vietnam War.

Our students were highly engaged with the performance and valued learning more about the war and Brett's family experiences during the war and after. Thank you Brett for your inspiring and unique performance!

Merici College Green Tip #30 Get your pre-loved clothes ready, it's SW(OP) shop time!

Who can forget the alarming clothing waste depicted in the ABC's War on Waste. The mountain of clothing which Australian's throw out every 10 minutes weighs approximately 6000 kilograms. That's 36 000 kilograms of clothing each hour.
