Term 4 has begun and with this, the girls are wearing their summer uniforms. Please take this opportunity to have your daughter check that her name is clearly marked on her uniform.
Please continue to take care and be patient when dropping off and picking up your daughter. Please drive slowly and follow the instructions of the staff directing traffic. The safety of the girls is paramount.
Term 4 Events
Term 4 sport has begun, and matches begin this Saturday 14 October. Girls will compete in a range of sports and parents are encouraged to support their daughters and model respect for both opponents and the officials.
The Parents and Friends’ Association will hold their Annual General Meeting on Monday 6 November at 6:00pm in the Boardroom, located on level 2 of the GCMD. As is customary, all positions are declared vacant and need to be filled. I would like to encourage members of the Meriden community to consider joining this valuable committee. The Parents and Friends’ Association meet monthly and organise a range of community events, including the Mother’s Day Breakfast and the Father’s Day Breakfast.
Music Under the Stars, held on-site on the evening of Friday 24 November, is a lovely casual celebration of the girls’ musical talents with the various ensembles performing a range of fun repertoire. Remember to bring your tinsel and a picnic rug. The Family Carols Service, held in Wallis Auditorium on the evening of Thursday 30 November, is another family event where we join in singing carols together and celebrate the birth of our saviour, Jesus. The Parents and Friends’ Association host a BBQ at both events. Please contact the President, Stephen Howison, via email at email@example.com to inquire about the Parents and Friends’ Association AGM or to volunteer for upcoming events.
As we begin the final term of the year, amid the busyness of exams, camps and end-of-year activities, and with the anticipation of the Christmas season ahead, let us look forward to the birth of Jesus, as we sing in the carol, echoing Matthew 1:23 and Isaiah 7:14, “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel”.
