WITH construction of the new Merlewood Primary School continuing, pupils have settled in the new temporary mobile classrooms and learning is continuing as normal.

Principal Audrey Ryan said the first phase, consisting of five foundation classes and a renovated school hall, is at an advanced stage and the second phase has also started.

“Heavy rains in the past few months have contributed to a slight delay.

A handover of phase one is expected to be at the end of term one,” said Ryan.

Ryan said it is full steam ahead for the pupils and teachers.

“In the first week of school, there were a few tearful moments from Grade 1 pupils and parents.

“However, now that it’s the second week, we have confident little Grade 1’s ready to proceed with the academic year.” said Ryan.

The school still has space for more enrolments in Grade 1 and parents can apply.

“A sense of excitement now lingers among the pupils as well as the teachers in anticipation of moving into the phase one buildings,” she said.
