Merici College Green Tip #48 - The Seventh Generation Principle

The 7th Generation Principle is an invaluable approach to sustainable resource management which states that:

“In our every deliberation, we must consider the impact of our decisions on the next seven generations.”

The Seventh Generation principle is based on an ancient first American philosophy of the Great Law of the Haudenosaunee, the founding document of the Iroquois Confederacy, the oldest living participatory democracy on Earth.
"We have a duty of care not only to our own children, but to the land and sea that feeds us, and seven generations on."

International Arts and Culture Day

Year 7 and 8 students had a fun and immersive day experiencing a range of international arts and cultural traditions. We welcomed an Alumni guest speaker from the class of 2002, Esther Sainsbury, and guest presenters for Kung Fu, Latin Dance and Indonesian culture and dance. Students participated in hands-on workshops in the afternoon, gaining an appreciation of cultural significance.

Year 10 Awards Ceremony

Principal's Address

November 2023

Today we gather to celebrate the end of the academic calendar in a year of challenges, joys and the building of a culture that celebrates and nurtures a n inclusive and vibrant community. We also take this opportunity to recognise the successes, strength, resilience and passion exhibited by our young women in 2023. So much has been achieved, both academically and more broadly, by our students who have had the courage to serve our community whilst honouring their own dreams and capabilities.

Advent Mass 2023

Principal's Address

November 2023

Good morning everyone and how blessed are we to celebrate such a wondrous mass together. This morning we have marked the advent of Christ – we await, with hope and eagerness, His arrival as our saviour.

Thank you, Fr Emil, for leading us, in community, so beautifully.

 Thank you to Ms Harrold -Carter who brought us together in community (as you have done so with great energy and creativity all year, your first with us).
