Principal's welcome

Dear Parents/Carers
Merinda State School has provided education to the students of Merinda, Bowen and surrounding areas since opening in 1898. The school has a long tradition of providing quality education, excellent sporting opportunites and strong community engagement.
Merinda State School is committed to achieving quality learning outcomes for all students. Our Prep to Year 6 curriculum is based on the mandated Australian Curriculum Guidelines. The school provides programs for extension of high achieving students, early intervention programs, literacy and reading intervention and special needs support.
Parents play a vital role in helping their student to achieve to their potential and at Merinda State School we encourage parental participation in the education process. Encouraging students to read daily, complete homework, assignments and assessment pieces are vital areas of parental support for learning. Another way to assist your child and others is to play an active role in the Parents and Citizens’ Association which has a long successful history of supporting students in Merinda.
Thank you for choosing Merinda State School and we look forward to assisting your student to achieve their potential.
Yours faithfully
Paul Wells
