Counsellors Corner - Welcome to 2023

It is such a joy to listen to the hive of activity and buzz of excitement filling the corridors of Merici College! I feel honoured to part of the Merici school community again this year and am very excited to see what 2023 will bring. One thing that I have learnt throughout 2022, is that Merici college is inclusive, supportive, and kind and I look forward to watching this thrive throughout the year.

I am excited to announce that this year we welcome a new member to our counselling team and the College community, Chelsea Kent.

Principal's Welcome Letter 2023

Welcome all to the commencement of the 2023 school year. I hope that you had a very happy and safe Christmas and New Year holiday season. I also trust that all are ready for:

  • a fresh beginning,
  • to be open to new experiences, and
  • are looking to continue your journey to human growth and fullness of being in 2023.

I would like to take this opportunity of welcoming our new Year 7s and students who have joined the Merici community in Years 8 through to Year 12.



Numerologists widely believe the number 23 to be associated with the planet Uranus; a planet which is believed by astrology enthusiasts to represent change, innovation, and progress. Others believe the number 23 to be a sign from angels, a message from the divine. Our research, in conjunction with the brilliant leadership team and the wonderful Merici staff and students, hints at one thing; 2023 is going to be a fabulous year to remember.

The Year in Vocational Education Training and Careers

Merici College provides the students with the key skills to move forward! The academic pathways to further education are varied and many of our girls have taken up early offers at university.

The vocational courses that the College offers our students in Year 10, 11 and 12 will certainly provide them with excellent opportunities to facilitate their career pathway and equip them with essential skills for the workplace or for further education.
