Student Awarded Actsmart Schools Sustainability Leadership Secondary Student

Congratulations to Imogen Simmons who has been awarded the Actsmart Schools Sustainability Leadership - Secondary Student.

Since her appointment as Sustainability Captain in Term 4 of 2019, Imogen has brought enthusiasm, commitment and drive to the overall approach to sustainability at Merici College. Her thought, planning and effort was undeterred by the disruptions this year and she has produced many important contributions to Sustainability on campus:

Merici College authorised as an IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) school

Official International Baccalaureate (IB) Stamp of Approval – MYP Authorisation

We are pleased to announce our formal authorisation as an IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) school. We have been preparing and trialling the MYP for the last 2 years and have received the final ‘stamp’ of approval that we meet IB international standards.

This means we are the only non-government school in Canberra authorised to offer both the MYP and Diploma Programme (DP), providing an IB continuation of programmes.

What is Interdisciplinary Learning at Merici College?

Can you imagine a student working on a Geography project that is also assessed by their French teacher? Or how about having to work on a Italian project that is also marked by a Business teacher?

The IB Middle Years Programme (MYP) at Merici College offers just such an opportunity. Students are provided with the chance to connect and collaborate across subjects through what is known as an interdisciplinary unit (IDU). The purpose of this is to allow students to investigate complex problems through different lenses whilst referring to knowledge gained in different disciplines.

Merici College Green Tip #36 - A different approach to buying clothes!

The link between the clothes we wear and their impact on our environment is often overlooked.

​According to https://www.onegreenplanet.org/ fashion is the second largest water polluter in the world. 

Also, did you know that nylon production releases nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas that is 300 times more damaging to our climate than CO2? 

Or, that the fashion industry emits more carbon than international flights and maritime shipping combined (Business Insider Australia, 2019).
