Country Week 2017

Country Week 2017

On Sunday 25 June some of our students from Year 10-12, who achieved excellent attendance and maintained Good Standing, travelled to Perth to compete at the annual Secondary Country Week Competition. Merredin College had teams representing in Volley Ball (Girls & Boys), Basketball (Girls & Boys) and Netball.

All teams trained hard leading up to the event and demonstrated great skills as well as excellent sportsmanship in all their games. Congratulations to the Boys Volleyball team who won the Grand Final for their division.

Students and staff stayed at the Woodman Point Recreation Camp and enjoyed a number of fun activities in the evenings including a fancy dress Bowling Night, Movie Night, Quiz Night and a very funny night of ‘Minute to Win It’ games.


Country Week is one of the highlights in the upper school calendar and we know that students look forward to this every year.


Thank you to David Pirovich for coordinating this years’ Country Week event. Also we are grateful to Kelly Robins, Alyce Rogerson, Natalie Beale, Vanessa Morris and Marc Gardner for giving up their time to coach the teams, drive buses and attend the week to supervise the children.
