Merici College Green Tip #28 - Which country is the world's highest emitter of CO2?

Which country is the world's highest emitter of CO2?

ABC's Fight for Planet A finds that it is.....


Yes, Australia is the world's highest per capita emitter of the greenhouse gas Carbon Dioxide (CO2).

With only .3% of global population and 1.3% of emissions, we are ahead of the USA and China. The UK produces 1/3 and Indonesia 1/10 of our emissions, respectively. 

2020 Bridge Benefit Dinner, In Her Name

On Saturday 5 September, the senior Hospitality students, prepared and presented an 8 course degustation for 68 guests, matched with wines for Eden Road Vineyard for the 2020 Bridge Benefit In Her Name fundraising dinner.

This year’s Bridge Benefit dinner was in honour of our friend Hannah, and the importance of this was felt deeply by those involved.  All proceeds will be donated to OzHarvest.

With great sadness Merici College announces that Mrs Loretta Wholley will conclude her time as College Principal at the end of 2020. Mrs Wholley will commence a principalship at Genazzano FCJ College in Melbourne in January 2021. We wish her well and thank her for her strong leadership and her extensive contribution to our Merici family and the wider Canberra community.

Due to the ongoing threat of Covid-19 and current restrictions, the national commemorative ceremony will, regrettably, not be held this year.

The Road to Academic Excellence

The road to academic excellence which is not always smooth, straight and easy.

For most students, the road is uphill, winds around corners and requires hard work. Just like our experiences this year.  At our recent Awards ceremony, the ladies who received awards for their academic achievement and effort deserve this recognition and praise.  Many of them have had to make sacrifices to achieve their personal best:

Merici College Green Tip #26 - Action to reduce your environmental impact and save money at home

Humanity activity is straining available surface water and groundwater supplies, contributing to droughts, dust storms, and other environmental problems that are detrimental to nature and humanity. Further, some water experts say that by reducing water use by 50 litres per person per day, we could delay or avoid the need for new water provision infrastructure such as dams or desalination plants, and their associated significant environmental impacts. 

A couple of simple actions can reduce your water consumption and save you money:
