Warm greetings from a very busy Merchiston.
To say that things are hectic would be an understatement. COVID-19 has certainly caused us all to look at how we do things and also ensure that new possibilities and opportunities are embraced.
The Merchiston staff have been simply amazing and true to form, they have applied themselves to whatever situation may have come their way. Whether it has been full-time classroom teaching or distance learning, they have displayed the true grit that is synonymous with Merchiston.
On Wednesday last week, we welcomed back every Mudrat to the school after an extremely lengthy break because of C-19. For the most part Merchiston has been functioning with boys at school for close to 12 weeks, however, a few junior grades arrived back at school last week. To hear the boys filling the school with sound is truly a blessing. However, the Egyptian Geese, Hadidas and frequent flyer pigeons are not too impressed to suddenly have their terrain occupied by the boys.
