Merici College Open Day – Thank you!

We would like to acknowledge the wonderful contribution made by students which, in no small part, contributed to the success of our Open Day. Over 400 students participated in Open Day activities during the day and into the night. The students were all wonderful ambassadors for our school and we have received excellent feedback from all our visitors on your exceptional skills in conducting school tours, participating in classroom activities, and presenting dance and drama performances.

Ningil House Day celebrations

On Tuesday 2 May, the students and staff of Ningil House celebrated the inaugural Ningil House Feast Day. The day began with prayer and reflection in Morning PC, where the formation of the Ningil Mission in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea, as well as what it means to be a member of Ningil House today, were referenced. Later in the day, the House celebrated through reciting the House prayer, singing a rousing rendition of “I’m a Ningil House Kid” and sharing cake in what proved to be a most joyous atmosphere.

Student Representation – Snowy Mountains Interschools Equestrian Competition

Chloe Richard represented Merici College in the Snowy Mountains Interschools Equestrian Competition from 27-30 April.  There were over 200 riders from across the state and riders competed in a number of disciplines including dressage, show jumping, cross-country, sporting and stock horse classes.  Chloe’s horse Apache is very new to the competition arena so they faced many challenges over the 4 days with their favourite events being cross-country and show jumping.  They came home with 3 second place ribbons and learnt a lot over the duration of the competition.

Merici Weekly Green Tip #9

This week is International Compost Awareness Week!

Did you know that as Australians, almost 50% of the waste we put in our landfill bins is compostable? You can rescue your food waste by starting a composting system at home or in the workplace. Composting is a great tool for gardeners and waste-haters alike!
