Student Exchange Experience - Gabrielle Shoebridge

What made you apply for an exchange program?

Way back in 2014, when I was in Year 2, my family went on a ‘big trip’ around Europe – we spent a week in Berlin, and I was hooked (looking back, it was probably the colourful, life-size bear statues we ran into wherever we went). I’ve been taking German lessons ever since. The more I learned about the language and culture, the more I craved to be there, in Germany, surrounded by it all – an exchange seemed like the perfect opportunity for me.

Merici College Green Tip #8 - Have you got leftovers?

What do you do when you have leftover food?

According to foodbank.org.au:

In Australia, 7.6 million tonnes of food is wasted every year. 

While 70% of this food is still perfectly edible, 1 in 6 Australian adults haven’t had enough to eat in the last year. 

On top of this, 1.2 million children have gone hungry during the same period.

So what should you do with leftover food?

Big Sister Science Day

It was wonderful having Year 6 students from St Joseph's Primary School attend our Big Sister Science Day today.

The Year 6 students joined our Year 9 Science classes to support their classroom learning as they are currently studying volcanos. Our Year 9 students assisted the students in exploring Earth Science activities,rotating around 8 stations. This also included a demo volcano experiment with dry ice and warm water! The students also participated in a Sustainability class, planting seedlings and visiting our kitchen garden.
