Year 10

Vinnies Sleepout

Homelessness is a problem often overlooked and misunderstood by the wider community. The Vinnies School Sleepout allows students to experience homelessness for themselves through one night of ‘sleeping rough’. This hands-on approach develops students’ understanding of the debilitating effects of homelessness and fosters a sense of community responsibility.

The Merici Vinnies Sleepout is on Thursday 20 June in the New Quad for Years 10-12 students. Students will be accompanied by supervising teachers for the duration of the event.

Year 10 Transitions Week

The Transitions Forum is an important week for Year 10 students. During the forum your daughters will consider how to make decisions, reflect on what is important in life, hear about a few different careers, learn about the job market, prepare for senior study and much, much more. Students are not expected to wear uniform during this week.

Lunch will be provided on Monday and Friday. Students will be required to bring or buy their own recess for the week as well as lunch on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

The days have been specifically organised into different areas.
