#MericiMoment Wall of Words – Natalia Pelle, Class of 2010 (College Vice Captain)

My chosen word is SPIRIT. Merici provided me with some great foundations for my life now, the way I conduct myself and what I'm passionate about at work. When I think of my time at Merici, I think of the word 'Spirit'. I remember the letter I received in Year 6, welcoming me into the Brescia 'family', I remember House cheers and the sense of belonging and community I felt when I was at school, surrounded by teacher and people who I knew really cared about me.

Merici College Green Tip #35 - Rewilding at Merici College

The sun came out on a winter's day in August for 20 students from the Sustainability at Merici (SAM) student group who gathered to do some rewilding with local species from the Yellow Box- Blakely's Red Gum Grassy Woodland, one of Canberra's key ecosystems.

Thanks to Merici's maintenance staff who prepared the area everything was ready for a great planting session.

Work began as the girls spent their lunch hour planting to provide habitat for small native birds and butterflies.

Feast Day of the Assumption of Mary Mass

On Monday 15 August  we celebrate the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. ‘See the beauty of the daughter of Jerusalem who ascended to heaven like the rising sun at dawn.’ (Benedictus antiphone from Daily Office).

It was a very special morning at Merici. This was our very first Mass celebrated in our newly renovated Chapel.


St Vinnies Oodie/Hoodie/PJs Day

Unfortunately due to CE COVID protocols, Merici College staff and students were unable to participate in the St Vinnies Sleepout to raise money and awareness for the homeless in our community. Instead, the students and staff held a Hoodies/Oodies/PJs Day on Thursday 4 August. We were overwhelmed with the high level of participation and over $2,000 was raised on the day.

Thanks everyone! #mericipride

2022 Can Line

For the last five weeks, the students at Merici College have been collecting cans of food for the most vulnerable in our community. TcSt Vinnies and OzHarvest were overwhelmed by the thousands of cans donated. As a result, many families in our wider community will be comforted by the contributions from Merici College.

Congratulations everyone for an outstanding effort and special congratulations to Balgo House for collecting the most cans and winning House points.

Biodiversity Restoration Project has started at Merici!

A Biodiversity Restoration project has commenced at Merici College which will have short-term and long-term stages.  Given the decline in Australian wildlife and biodiversity and Australia having the highest rate of species extinction in the world, largely due to land clearing and use of synthetic chemicals, it is important for Merici to make our contribution to the solution.  Merici can provide an important travel link and food source for wildlife between Black Mountain and Mount Ainslie.
