Principal's Blog - Fathers are pivotal in their daughter’s lives

At our recent Father Daughter dinner, guest speaker, Patricia Falcetta (https://sociallivingsolutions.com.au/) shared the following with dads – on the evening a few fathers asked for this and I thought it would be excellent to share with you all.

“Fathers are pivotal in their daughter’s lives.  Fathers are very powerful at establishing values for their girls.  Values such as trust, respect, honesty, integrity, racism and generosity.  Modelling is the best way to demonstrate these values. Remember she is watching you!

Merici College Green Tip #27 - An alternative to chlorine bleach?

A focus on water quality necessitates consideration of cleaning products.  Chlorine bleach is a commonly used cleaning product which goes down our drains.  It is also known to have health and environmental impacts. 

If you have concerns about the health and environmental impacts of chlorine bleach, follow this link for an alternative and further information.

Dance Troupe performance at St Andrew's Aged Care

Our Dance Troupe performed an hour long concert for the residents at St. Andrews Village in Hughes on Saturday, 31 August. The girls were absolutely fantastic and we have already been asked back to perform again nearer Christmas! The residents were clapping and tapping their feet and were very appreciative.

We would like to thank our dancers for their ongoing commitment to entertaining our community and attending community events.
