2017 Annual Report to the Community
2017 has been a signiﬁcant year in the life of Merici College. #UnitedinHope was our theme for the year and focus for our Masses and major celebrations. Students have been challenged to work hard, achieve their best and aspire to make posi ve changes in our community. Through our academic programs, as well as cultural and co-curricular areas, we have seen many achievements where students have excelled and received many awards. Our NAPLAN results show high growth in the areas of Numeracy, Reading and Writing.
This year saw signiﬁcant political and social issues impact on the schooling environment with Commonwealth funding. All-girls education was also in the spot light which gave our community the opportunity to highlight the beneﬁts they believe this choice provides.
Culturally, we have witnessed compassion from our students out in our community helping the less fortunate through their involvement in our Christian Service Program, Social Justice events and our inaugural Immersion experience in Lombardina.
We are very proud to be ranked as one of Australia's top Innovative Schools in the 2017 Educator Magazine recognising our Sustainability/ Kitchen Garden/Healthy Canteen program.
