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.
