2018 Annual Report to the Community
Spreading Joy has been an apt theme for 2018. To live a life ﬁlled with joy is a challenge and a choice. Working with an amazing group of adults and young women every day brings me that joy. Together we celebrate individual and group achievements. Transforming our learning and living environment is something the Board and Executive have had as a focus over the past 12 months and will continue into 2019 and beyond.
In 2018, we have been progressing our application as a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Middle Years and Diploma Years Program. The International Baccalaureate aims to develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world. For the majority of 2018 the College has been reﬂecting and creating our new 2019-2021 Strategic Plan.
Merici College is a place where exploraton, creativity and imagination make learning exciting and where all learners aspire to reach their dreams. May the development of our young women as happy, conﬁdent and engaged students be always at the forefront of our minds and decisions.
