Merici celebrates Maths Pi Day

Thank you to St Thomas More's Primary and Rosary Primary who joined in our Pi Day celebrations on Friday 15 March. Over the past two days we have enjoyed exploring the number Pi and other areas of mathematics through a range of hands on, individual and group activities. Students rotated around stations for a 45-minute session run by Mathematics staff and students.

Our Challenge, Our Hope

Dear Merici College Community

Like many Catholics, over the past years and weeks, I have struggled to express my feelings, thoughts and reactions to the abuse of power, privilege and position by members of the Catholic Church, including Pell’s guilty verdict. 

I personally, have found it difficult to comprehend how such horrendous crimes have occurred. My prayer life has also been put to test, yet I believe that these challenges can only be eased by praying with an open and trusting heart.

International Women’s Day - Strength as Women!

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Celebrated on March 8, the day marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity. The theme for this year was #BalanceforBetter and to support this special occasion, the Merici community received a white lapel ribbon representing the College’s symbol for the year, the white lily/fleur de lis to wear with pride, as well as hosting an IWB Strength as Women cocktail party.

Merici Green Tip #6 - Our SAMs

A record number of students have signed up to be part of the Sustainability at Merici (SAM) Group. Almost ninety students signed up last Thursday at our Activities Expo, more than 10% of the student population. A reflection of the growing awareness of urgent action on climate change and environmental protection! Enjoy our photos from our Activities Expo. Well done to Gabby Cox, our Sustainability Captain for her efforts in organising the stall and speaking to our students.

IWD Principal's Blog

I am a proud graduate of a Catholic, all-girls school. I attended St Brigid’s College in Lesmurdie in WA from Kindy to Year 12 and last year celebrated my graduating class’s 30th reunion.

I am now the proud principal of a Catholic, all-girls school. At Merici we support every student, academically, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially, in their endeavour to create a pathway where they can try, fail, learn, succeed and celebrate.

Merici celebrates International Women's Day .... strength as women!

Today we are celebrating International Women's Day. International Women's Day  is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for moving towards gender parity (International Women’s Day website).

All staff and students received a white lapel ribbon today - wear this with pride! The white ribbon represents our symbol for the year, the white lily/fleur de lis and celebrates our strength as women.

Project Compassion - supporting Caritas

Merici College is once again supporting Caritas Australia's Project Compassion Lenten fundraising and awareness-raising appeal. Starting on Ash Wednesday, students have been asked to donate their spare change to their Pastoral class Project Compassion collection box. Each Friday afternoon for four weeks, and the final Thursday of Term 1, House tallies are being recorded. College Cup points will be awarded after the final collection on Thursday 11 April. The overall aim is for Merici College to support Caritas Australia's initiatives (see posters attached).
