A Message from Key School Bodies
Welcome to our school!
If you visit us you will discover a Year 7-12 Catholic girls' College delivering innovative education empowering students to build their futures. Every cent that comes into the school is spent on education and our facilities testify that we are technology-rich and constantly evolving. Positioned adjacent to the city in inner Canberra, we are proudly inclusive and foster best practice in girls’ education through a focus on our Principles for Powerful Learning. We support students with needs and extend students with our challenge program. Years 7 to 9 students are able to elect into our long established Laptop Program. Students in Years 11 and 12 are loaned a school laptop. All students are taught to be technologically literate. Students in Years 10 to 12 can attain nationally recognised vocational certificates in a variety of areas. Vertical pastoral care classes help students belong, and with the SRC, offer opportunities for student leadership for all. Our wide co-curricular program includes diverse sporting, music and performing arts opportunities, Duke of Edinburgh Scheme and an active social justice group. Our excellent results are a reflection of striving to live out our mission: Merici challenges you to love life, have hope, be faithful and build futures more wondrous than you dare to dream. We celebrate Christ's presence in our community.
