What our girls say about Merici …

I was a bit nervous on my first day but I was given lots of information and guidance that helped me. I am looking forward to our Year 7 camp so that I can spend more time with my new friends.  I have enjoyed meeting all my new teachers and going to the different classes, and the school leaders have helped me find my way around the College. Year 7 student

Bringing your own computer to school this year has helped create more familiarity in using technology in the classroom and the teachers are always supportive and willing to help me. Year 8 student

It’s great being able to become involved in so many different academic and co-curricular activities. I am a member of the Social Justice group and I am looking forward to helping other people in our community.     Year 9 student

The College’s focus on sustainability is amazing. Each day we learn more ways to keep our environment safe. Through my day to day practices, such as using the correct bins, minimising waste, recycling and working in our kitchen garden and glasshouse, I feel like I am helping to sustain a healthy environment. Year 10 student

The vertical grouping in PC is fantastic at Merici, allowing students from all years to integrate and form relationships. It also gives the senior students the opportunity to develop their leadership skills and be role models, which builds on a larger sense of community and belonging, and enhances the school spirit. Year 11 student                          

Merici has given me the skills that I need so that my career pathway can begin in 2016. I graduate this year knowing that I have developed as a whole person, academically, socially and spiritually. I am looking forward to building a future more wondrous than I dare to dream, and I will always remember all my teachers who have been so supportive of my learning. Year 12 student
