Last updated 11:17 PM on 8 October 2011

Merimbula Public School has an active Student Representative Council (SRC) with two class representatives from each Year 1 to 6 class. At the start of each Semester, Term 1 and Term 3, a special School Assembly is held to recognise student leaders and induct new members into the SRC. These class representatives support the five Year 6 School Leaders in providing student support, fundraising for local and global charities, organising fundraising events such as Fun Runs and School Discos and presenting speeches on behalf of the student body at ANZAC Day, Remembrance Day and special services as well as when hosting fortnightly school assemblies.
"We have a fantastic SRC at Merimbula Public School" shared the Principal Mrs Michelle Hulme. "They are always actively working on ways to support our local community and less fortunate children in other countries. Recently they purchased over $500 worth of school resources to send to the Somoan Islands for children in a small community school". The resources purchased by the SRC were sent to the school with the school's General Assistant, Ross Cooper, and retired Merimbula Public School Teacher Ann Cooper who have spent over a month in the school and community completing restoration projects.
The Semester 2 SRC Induction took place recently in the school's Jackson Hall. Parents, grandparents, staff and peers watched on as the incoming SRC recited the School Pledge and sang the School Song. The whole school joined in singing the school song as they watched an outstanding Digital iMovie about the school which was made as a film clip for the School Song by some of the senior students and SRC Leaders. Students and staff were delighted to see that the film also contained sign language to communicate the chorus and initial verses.
The Merimbula PS continue to meet fortnightly to coordinate support for charities and children in need, as well as support their peers from across the school to be great school and global citizens.
