Memories@Merici with Nicolette Marks, Class of 2008

Up, Close and Personal with Nicolette Marks

I graduated from Merici in 2008. The values I developed over the six years I attended Merici set me on an incredible path, which exceeded all my expectations. I gained multiple academic qualifications, I studied in Iceland and New Zealand, I was the only Aussie involved in world first research in Antarctica and I have travelled to almost 80 countries. I love exploring and globetrotting, but the strong sense of loyalty and pride Merici instilled in me, always draws me back to Canberra, to my family and community

A Reflection from Sr Genny Ryan osu from the Australian Ursulines

Once upon a time……

in the year 1474 a girl named Angela Merici was born in the tiny farming village of Dezenzano situated on the shores of Lake Garda in Italy.

Now, today, the 26th May 2017, 543 years later we gather to celebrate Angela’s life and to give thanks to God for the extraordinary person she was… but Angela Merici would be quick to say “no more wonderful than each of you – the students, staff, parents and friends of Merici College, Braddon.”

Merici's Year 10 Engineering Team wins Da Vinci Decathlon!

We congratulate the Da Vinci Competition team members who competed yesterday in the Elite Da Vinci competition at Knox Grammar School in Sydney. The competition was incredibly competitive, there were 1300 students from the best schools in Sydney and the surrounding area! Both the Year 9 and Year 10 teams worked incredibly hard and achieved good results, however as you can imagine with so many top grammar and selective schools it’s very difficult to even reach the top 25%.

'Stop Fear Spread Hope' Domestic Violence Awareness Campaign

Over the coming months Merici College will be running a campaign to raise awareness about domestic violence, together with Marist College. This campaign is called ‘Stop Fear Spread Hope’. Students will be invited to take photos that incorporate themes that have been outlined for this campaign and submit them as part of a competition.

ACTSmart Earth Hour Awards 2017

Congratulations to all Merici College students and staff for participating in the 2017 Earth Hour. At the ACT Government’s Sustainable School Program Awards Ceremony on Thursday 18 May, Minister Shane Rattenbury MLA awarded our College 1st place for our participation in Earth Hour. In particular, Minister Rattenbury acknowledged our efforts in conserving energy and engaging the community through the various activities organised on the day. Specifically, our interactive art installation of a light globe, where students and staff alike pledged to reduce their ecological footprint.

Merici Weekly Green Tip #11

Here is our green tip for the week:

DID YOU KNOW …

FOR HEATING SYSTEMS TO REACH THEIR MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY,  THEY SHOULD BE SET BETWEEN 19 AND 23 DEGREES.

As the Canberra chill starts to set up, keep this in mind (for your pockets, the planet and your comfort).
