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 email addresses.

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.

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.  Click here for further instructions

eCentral

eCentral, Meriden’s intranet, contains comprehensive information for parents and students.  It includes daily notices, calendars, newsletters, uniform requirements, school policies and guidelines, cocurricular and sport information.  It also contains student-specific information such as individual timetables, subject information, assessment schedules, homework resources, useful websites and access to Meriden’s e-Library catalogue.

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.

Parent Lounge

Parent Lounge is a secure ICT facility which enables parents to check and update important 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.

eNews

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

Newsletter

The fortnightly Meriden newsletter contains essential information for parents.  The newsletter is in electronic format and is emailed each fortnight. The Senior School also emails a Sports Newsletter to Senior School parents at the commencement and close of each term.

Snapshot

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

Publications

You can find details of Meriden’s printed publications on the Publications page.
