Merrin School is a full primary school in Avonhead, situated in the north west of Christchurch. We have a roll of approximately 490 children from New Entrants to Year 8.
Merrin School is a warm and vibrant school with a supportive community at its heart. Our vision is for all children to shine, by purposefully providing a learning environment that nurtures and grows every child. We want our students to have the self-belief, skills and competencies to believe that anything and everything is possible.
Our school’s motto, Whetū Kohara (Shining stars) depicts the image of a star shining brightly, as brightly as it can. Our tamariki (children) are at the heart of this star. They are at the centre of our school.
