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).

Mother's Day Prayer and Breakfast

On the morning of Monday 15 May, our College was honoured by the presence of the mothers and grandmothers of our girls. It was a wonderful opportunity for our community to celebrate Mothers’ Day with a very special Prayer and Breakfast. We were overwhelmed by the number of mums and grandmas who arrived at school with their daughters and grand-daughters. Throughout the liturgy, students wrote messages of thanks, appreciation and love to their mums and grand-mothers; recognising the important role they play in their lives.

Balgo House donate Mother's Day gifts for refugees

Over the past 2 weeks, students of Balgo House have been continuing to work in partnership with the Sisters of Mercy, Sr Frances and Sr Angela. To continue with Balgo’s willingness to give to others, Sr Angela and Sr Frances asked if we would be able to collect some small items to contribute to 10 gifts for some refugees from Iraq, for Mother’s Day this weekend. During a Friday morning assembly, Sr Angela and Sr Frances came in to meet with Balgo House to receive the gifts.
