Like most years, 2016 is proving to be busy and hectic for Merivale School's community. We are at the beginning of Term 4 wondering how we got three quarters of the way through the school year so quickly.
The last term of the year is always an extremely busy term. The start of the warmer weather brings a return of swimming and athletic lessons and a general desire of pupils and staff to escape the four walls of the classroom to explore the outside environment. We also prepare to farewell our departing Year 6 students who are ready to enter into the next phase of their educational journey.
This term sees the introduction of the Merivale School Rock Band. We are excited to see how this progresses. Six of our students have started sailing lessons again and shortly we are about to participate in touch rugby competitions and an inaugural Summer Basketball League. I have a funny feeling Term 4 is going to fly by faster than the rest of the year!!
