Merici College Green Tip #40 - End of Year Message

It has been a very busy and successful year for sustainability action at Merici, culminating in recognition by the ACT government through the ACTsmart schools programme as the 2019 Sustainable School of the Year.

At this time of year the regular Green Tip readers will know already to think carefully about what you buy in order to minimise demand on resources and waste.  If you need to remind yourself, see this link from Planet Ark. Enjoy!

A compelling article, from credible authors in a reputable journal concludes that:

"In our view, the evidence from tipping points alone suggests that we are in a state of planetary emergency: both the risk and urgency of the situation are acute."

Year 10 Awards Ceremony

Today we gather to celebrate the end of Year 10 and prepare to embark on the next stage in your daughter’s educational journey. We also take this opportunity to recognise their successes, both academically and more broadly in their contributions to many aspects of the life and community of Merici College. 

We take this time to thank the parents and carers for their support and commitment. I also thank the teachers for the exceptional learning opportunities and guidance they provide. And to give thanks for each student in this Year 10 cohort.

Year 7-10 Advent Mass

Our community celebrated Advent on Thursday 5 December with a very special Mass. We were very honoured to welcome our Celebrant, Fr Emil Milat from the Central Canberra parishes and Sr Genny Ryan, one of our Ursuline Sisters whose Order is instrumental to the foundation of Merici and who continue to inspire us today.
