Meridan State College is continually focused on improving
opportunities for parents to engage with the College and to support their
child’s learning. In Term 1, our Primary
campus offer Parent Partnership Meetings in each year level to allow parents to
be informed of the year level curriculum focus areas and critical learning
concepts from the Australian Curriculum.
These sessions also provide information on school and

parent fact sheets to assist you in supporting your child’s skill development in
the areas of literacy and numeracy.
