We are returning to our regular school timetable for all classes and year groups. Attached is the Return to School Plan for students. Please read this through with your daughter to ensure that the expectations and processes for returning to school are clear.

Thank you so very much for all your support through this difficult time and with the careful return to school.

Welcome Defence School Mentor (DSM)

Hello, my name is Kate Friend and I’m very excited to be your new Merici College Defence School Mentor (DSM) at Merici College. This is my first role as a DSM. I have spent many years developing food products as a Food Technologist living in three different countries, plus Australia. More recently I have been a Food Technology teacher, I really enjoy seeing young people learn and grow.


Merici College Green Tip #33 - Sw(op) Shop Time!

Are you ready for the much-awaited annual Sw(op) Shop?

Bring your donations to Student Services, next to the First Aid Room, and deposit in the black bin.

You can help to divert 6000 kilograms of clothing waste being sent to landfill every ten minutes in Australia. 

That looks like the above image!!
