Principal's Fortnightly Blog - World Teachers' Day

Friday 26 October celebrates World Teachers’ Day in Australia. Interestingly it is celebrated on 5 October in the northern hemisphere, but as the dates always fall into school stand down period, we celebrate it on the last Friday of October each year. The day was established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) in 1994 to recognise the role of teachers in society.

FundRaise for Merici Artworks

As part of our Strategic Plan, Merici is committed to beautifying our school grounds and investing in artworks that celebrate the history and traditions of our Founders. Our 60th Anniversary in 2019 provides the College with the opportunity to fulfil this Strategic Plan goal and we would greatly appreciate support from our community, current, past and prospective families, to contribute towards the payment of a wooden-carved statue of St Angela Merici, as well as the installation of other artworks.
