Communication

Meriden communicates with the school community through various channels.

Email

The majority of communication from the School is via email.  For this reason it is crucial to advise us of changes to your email address. Parents may update their contact details through the Parent Lounge facility.

Parent Lounge

Parent Lounge is a secure ICT facility which enables parents to check and update information contained in their daughter’s individual school record such as medical information, address and contact details.  It is important that this information is always current.  Parent Lounge can be accessed easily by logging into eCentral using the parent’s personal log-in details.

eCentral

eCentral, Meriden’s intranet, contains comprehensive information for parents, teachers and students.  It includes newsletters, uniform requirements, school policies and guidelines, cocurricular and sport information, school bus timetables and application forms, and access to Parent Lounge, Flexischools and online school fee payments.

The system requires personalised log-in which is provided to students and their parents when they commence at the School.  Meriden’s ICT Department can assist with questions or issues regarding eCentral.

SMS Alert

In the event of a major incident at the School, such as an evacuation or lockdown, parents will be advised and kept updated by SMS.

The SMS system is also used to alert a parent of an unexplained student absence in the Senior School.

eNewsletters

The fortnightly Meriden Newsletter contains essential information for Pre-K to Year 12 parents.  The newsletter is in electronic format and is emailed each fortnight.

Snapshot is an overview of notices and upcoming activities for the Junior School.  It is emailed to Junior School parents fortnightly.

A Senior School Sports Newsletter is emailed to Senior School parents at the commencement and close of each term.

Sports App

The Meriden Sports App is used to communicate important information about sports including draw releases, draw changes, venue changes and cancellations.  The App is the main method of communication throughout the various sports seasons in the Senior and Junior Schools. The Meriden Sports App can be downloaded from the App Store (Apple devices), Play Store (Android devices) and Windows Store (Windows devices).  It is free to download for all students, parents and the wider community.

eVe

eVe is Meriden’s online learning management system which can be accessed by students, parents and teachers.  Students and teachers use eVe to collaborate and communicate about school work, class and homework resources, assessment information and cocurricular activities. It also contains student-specific information such as individual timetables, as well as useful website links and access to Meriden’s eLibrary catalogue.

Parents of students in Years 7 to 9 are able to view their daughter’s eReport through eVe. eReports are updated as assessment tasks are completed and contain grades and other important information about a student’s progress.

eNews

Daily notices for students in Years 7 to 12 are displayed on digital screens throughout the Senior School campus.
