"When I came to Merici, the support of teachers and students were really good. They were welcoming, organised, supportive and friendly. The pastoral care teachers were very supportive and when I had endless questions, they always answered with helpful and understanding answers. My class teachers were very helpful and sup0portive for when I didn’t understand instructions. The support of Merici has been more than I can ask for and I am very happy at Merici."

"I like how Merici has a very strong sporting system. There are many opportunities for students involved in Merici Sport. I recently returned from a school netball trip in Hawaii. I learnt a lot about the Hawaii people and shared a lot of memorable experiences with my peers. There are also many day carnivals you can represent your school in sports such as Netball, Soccer, AFL and running. I am also part of one of the weekend netball teams and Merici always do very well on the ladder."

"There are so many things I like about Merici but the favourite thing I have like so far is St Angela Merici Day. When I was in Year 8, a lady came in and she taught us to love our bodies and personalities. She told us we were all beautiful in our own way. Since that day I have not doubted how I feel about my body."

“Merici’s vertical grouping in Pastoral Care is great, allowing older students to develop their leadership skills and to be role models, instilling a larger sense of community and belonging which builds school spirit.”

At Merici, we do not only acquire knowledge in the classroom, but grow as a person through every aspect of our school life.  The community environment and sense of belonging we experience here at the College support us as individuals in our journey towards adulthood.”

“I like our Pastoral Care System.  I can say with confidence that I know everyone in our year, and the majority of the two years above and below us.  We get along really well too so that is a bonus!”
Year 11 student

“Being in an all-girls school brings about a feeling of comfort and unity.  It is like we are one big family and we don’t have the pressures of trying to impress boys, or have the distraction of boys either!”
Year 11 student

“It’s great because we get the feeling of responsibility – knowing that the younger ones look up to us – that we have to set a good example.”
Year 11 student

“Because there are fewer students I find teachers have more time for me and I am not left alone in handling the more difficult senior years.”
