Merici Mentor Program Celebration

On Monday 27 November, our community acknowledged the achievements of our Mentors and Volunteers at a very special afternoon tea. The Mentoring Program continues to be an amazing partnership between the communities of Merici College and Black Mountain School (BMS). The relationship begins in Year 9, with volunteers giving up their time fortnightly for a semester to go over to BMS to work with students with disabilities on their communication skills.

Merici College Green Tip #47 - Laudate Deum

On October 4, Pope Francis released his apostolic exhortation Laudate Deum, that completes his encyclical Laudato si’ published in May 2015, and is addressed “to all people of good will on the climate crisis”.

The Pope reiterates and further develops the themes from his second encyclical in which he expressed his “heartfelt concerns about the care of our common home”. 

 “I have realised that our responses have not been adequate, while the world in which we live is collapsing and may be nearing the breaking point.”

Merici College Green Tip #46 - Heard the buzz? It's Australian Pollinator Week!

11-19 November is Australian Pollinator Week.

Note the label in the image ...1500 bees visit 25 million flowers to produce 700g of honey! Amazing!

Bees do more than make honey.  

They are intricate architects, unparalleled navigators and hard workers.

These tiny creatures play a vital role in our ecosystems and food supply.

Merici College Green Tip #45 - All aboard the no-waste sushi train....

If you eat sushi...

But don't want to contribute to the single use plastic problem.....

​​You can take your own container and set of re-usable chopsticks with you when you know you are planning to order sushi!

You could also take some soy sauce in a container from home and say "no" to the plastic soy sauce fish. 

​Enjoy!

Merici College Green Tip #44 - Please keep your dogs off Merici's Biodiversity Restoration Project

Another five Australian species are at risk of immediate extinction with a further forty-one species on course to be declared critically endangered in 2023, according to the Threatened Species Scientific Committee.

This “demonstrates the very serious and increasing extinction risks to Australia’s biota."
