Enrolling Now 2019 Campaign

Our Open Day is a wonderful opportunity for prospective families and their daughters to see the College in action and meet our students; Principal's Address, Year 7 Information Session, guided tours, and lots more.

Be a Merici Girl for a Day provides Year 6 students with an opportunity to experience a typical day at Merici College. Students spend a full day at school and are given a timetable which they follow to demonstrate the diverse and enriching curriculum offered at Merici College.

We look forward to seeing you at these events.

Lenten Reflection

The penitential season of Lent is the period of forty days (excluding Sundays) beginning on Ash Wednesday. It is a season of the Church year that observes the forty days Jesus fasted and prayed in the wilderness before He began His public ministry of preaching for repentance. For me, the beginning of each Lenten season conjures up memories of giving up lollies, going to the Stations of the Cross and eating fish and chips every Friday night. The three traditional ways to prepare for Easter are through Prayer, Fasting and Almsgiving. There are many ways that we can achieve this.

Australian Catholic Youth Festival Student Reflections

From the 6th to the 10th of December 2017, Merici students Erin Smart, Taneisha Cook, Kate reedy, Maddison Green together with Ms Clare Freeman (Teacher) travelled to Sydney along with over 100 other youth from the Canberra/Goulburn Archdiocese to take part in the Australian Catholic Youth Festival. We were joined by another 15,000 young people at Sydney Olympic Park where we participated in four days of prayer, worship and celebration with an atmosphere of joy that we will never forget.
