In 2019, Merici College celebrates its 60th Anniversary and the journey from Canberra Catholic Girls’ High School, through to Catholic High School Braddon, to Braddon Catholic Girls’ High School, and to Merici College. Merici has organised several events that will embrace the community of current students and staff, alumni and the wider community. In particular the community will pay tribute and homage to the religious orders who were fundamental to the school’s establishment and success, and remain at the core of all that Merici College is and does today.
We look forward to seeing you at our celebrations.
