Only 8 more sleeps before our grades 1 - 6 students start on Thursday February 2nd and 9 more sleeps until our preppies start on Friday February 3rd. The countdown is on............
Our outdoor spaces, sports courts, play equipment and oval look amazing! Come and see us late January for a school tour!
In 2017 all children at Mernda Park PS will be encouraged to ride bikes/scooters to and from school. Not only will this be a great option from a sustainability view point, with less cars on the roads, but it will also encourage health and fitness in our students. Of course safety will be paramount with all children required to wear a helmet and comply with Victorian laws for bicycle riding. We have an amazing bike shed (see below) to house bikes and scooters!
Our 2017 staff were very excited to see the construction progress of Mernda Park PS at our recent site visit. Bright colours throughout the buildings are a feature as is our huge oval with the football goal posts now in place. Enrol now to attend our November information session and receive up to date information and meet some of our 2017 staff.

Mernda Park PS will cater for the diverse learning needs and abilities of all students, each learning community has design features providing optimum student learning through a variety of differentiated spaces and collaborative opportunities.
Wow......frames are up on the Early Learning Centre and Kindergarten. These facilities are being built on the same site as Mernda Park Primary School, making them a part of the school community and ensuring that the transition from early childhood programs, to kinder and then to primary school, is as smooth as possible.
A site visit yesterday shows construction on track for the 2017 opening of Mernda Park PS. The learning community spaces are amazing! Don't forget the community forum Tuesday 31st May for more information.
What a great space.....Mernda Park PS has everything you and your child would want in a primary school.
