Merindah supports parents in the overall education of their daughters by reinforcing the values taught at home. The clubs aim to help the girls to achieve their best and to develop into responsible and generous members of society.
Through a range of extracurricular, social and service activities, the clubs provide a positive and fun environment for girls to acquire good habits and build their character. In the clubs, the girls also receive individual mentoring to set and achieve personal goals.
Merindah is committed to the wellbeing and safety of children and young people. All staff and volunteers are bound by AEPL's Child Protection Policy which is may be accessed here.
Girls' Club: an Overview
Aims of the Club
Merindah Club aims to help girls from a young age to grow in friendship and character. Each monthly session for Club 24 (years 2-4) and Club 56 (years 5-6) includes a virtue talk and a fun activity to foster friendship among the girls and to learn a new skill. As the girls progress towards high school, a greater emphasis is placed on pursuing academic and personal excellence by building strong foundations of identity, character, leadership and service.
The Avanti programme is designed to help teens in their transition into high school. Starting with a high school preparation camp for year 6 graduates, the programme continues with monthly workshops throughout year 7 to continue engaging with the new challenges which are part and parcel of high school life.
Canvas is a leadership programme which equips teens with real knowledge of what makes a great leader and gives them the practical skills to be leaders in their own communities. Combining leadership seminars with fun workshops, participants receive advice and coaching to develop personal talents, pursue excellence in study and generously give themselves to others.
In year 8, participants showcase their leadership skills by organising a day camp activity for girls in years 2-4. In year 9, the girls will participate in a service project to make a difference in the community.
