Meric College Green Tip #19 - TerraCycle Pen Recycling

As the term and year draw to a close, may I remind you that there is a Terracyle pen recycling box in the iC near the photocopier.

TerraCycle, one of the fastest growing green companies in the world and has found a way to recycle, up-cycle, re-use, or otherwise transform many items that can't go into mainstream recycling and therefore end up in landfill.

TerraCycle has created a zero waste solution for pens, pencils and markers. Use this box to recycle pens and pen caps, mechanical pencils, markers and marker caps, permanent markers, and permanent marker caps.

Christmas Hampers for St Vinnies

Our Year 9 Religious Education students were kept very busy yesterday packing their ‘mini-hampers’ or Christmas gifts for the St Vincent de Paul Christmas appeal. With so many students with gifts, cellophane and sticky tape, the atmosphere was very festival, sometimes semi-organised chaos but they all had lots of fun! Instead of donating individual items the students voted to form small groups and make ‘mini hampers’. The gifts are around under the Christmas tree all the students have done a great job!

Years 7-10 Advent Mass

Our community celebrated Advent on Thursday 6 December with a very special Mass. We were very honoured to welcome our Celebrant, Fr Bernie Patterson from St Brigid and St Patrick parishes in Braddon and Dickson, and Sr Genny Ryan, one of our Ursuline Sisters whose Order is instrumental to the foundation of Merici and who continue to inspire us today.
