Easter Reflection

On Friday 12 April, the Merici College community reflected on the significance of Easter by exploring the Stations of the Cross and other important aspects of Holy Week in the Easter Liturgy. The liturgy was completely student-focussed with approximately 50 students leading all elements. We wish our community a very Holy and safe Easter.

Student Achievement - Under 15’s National Hockey Tournament

We congratulate Imogen Dorsett who is currently participating in the Under 15’s National Hockey Tournament. The Under 15 ACT team are doing well with tough opposition in their group, so far against NSW, QLD, VIC and WA lost 3 and drawn 1 but all very competitive matches. They play Tasmania at 2pm this afternoon and then into the play offs over the weekend.

We wish Imogen lots of luck in this afternoon's games!

 

Merici Solar Energy System

This week our solar energy system was officially handed over to the school by SolarHub.

School Sustainability Captain Gabrielle Cox, several students and Merici's Sustainability Leadership Team were all present to learn about how the system works and see the data live.

As it was a cool and sunny day, our system of 276 panels at 92KW was actually providing 33% of the school's energy even though overall it is expected to average 18% of our usage. Very exciting!
