Principal's Reflection - Sustainability Presentation at Korero Conference, New Zealand

In the July school break, I was fortunate to present at Korero in Queenstown NZ. Korero is a Maori word for Conversation. This was a Conference like no other, there were no keynote speakers charging significant fees to sell us an idea or product, but rather was a series of workshops presented by Principals for Principals in the Catholic Secondary Schools sector. There were over 100 Principals from New Zealand and Australia in attendance.

2017 Semester 2 Mathematics@Merici

The Mathematics staff are excited to be back for Semester Two, 2017.

The semester has gotten off to a cracking start with over one hundred students from Years 7-12 participating in this year’s Australian Mathematics Competition. Held on the Thursday and Friday of Week 2, the competition challenged students with increasingly complex problems covering a broad range of mathematical disciplines. The girls came out of the competition buzzing about which questions were tricky, what they tried and what they would do differently in the future.
