Alumni Mentoring Program for Senior Students launched

Merici College is excited to be launching a mentoring program to help our senior students as they adjust to the remote learning situation. A call went out to our alumni who graduated between 2012 and 2018, asking for volunteers. We are so proud and grateful that over 150 recent graduates have responded in just two days.

 

During this time of physical distance, it's important for us all to stay socially and academically connected. Every single senior student at Merici will be assigned a former student who will work with them throughout Term 2.

Merici College Student Scholarships for 2021

The Merici College Board has decided to grant number of scholarships to students entering Year 7 at Merici College in 2021. This scholarship will recognise the outstanding talents of current Year 6 students and their passion for learning and leading.  In addition, a number of scholarships to students entering Year 11 at Merici College will also be granted. All students in our current Year 10 cohort are welcome to apply, as well as new students applying to Merici from outside the College.

Happy Tullow House Day!

Today we celebrate Tullow House Day! We have been chatting with the students of Tullow House during online Pastoral Care. Many of the girls dressed in our House colour, green. We participated in a quiz testing their knowledge of the history of Tullow House and the staff members within the House. The girls had great fun in their scavenger hunt, retrieving green objects from around their home and garden. Some of the girls found balloons, green feathered boa, cuddly toys, vegetables, herbs, the list goes on. Many of the girls made ‘green’ cakes and desserts to share with their families!

Why did you chose to study the IB Diploma Program at Merici College?

 I chose IB because I've always been interested in doing new classes, and IB is very different from the structure I'm used to. I hope the IB DP challenges me because I want to expand my horizons. For me, the IB is a new pathway that I can use to better myself and be a well rounded person. Preashika Dhakal, Year 11

 

Remote Learning Timetables for Term 2

Please see the below attached PDF to find the new timetables that will start at the beginning of Term 2.

 

Our focus is on continuity of learning (not assessments, although there will still be assessments). 

 

Our priority is on creating a sense of belonging and community even though we may be apart, hence Pastoral Care still plays a very important part in our daily routine.
