Starting School

Starting school is always an important event in the life of any child and of any family.  At MIS we aim to make your child’s first day of school a very positive experience and to make the transition to the new school environment as smooth as possible.

Entering the school’s environment for the first time or changing schools can bring with it feelings of excitement, anticipation, worry, anxiety, curiosity and for some, resentment. Meridian International school teachers and staff are aware of this and follow a set procedure which is meant to support both new students and their families on the first day of school.

To make the transition as smooth as possible, new students are offered the possibility to come to Meridian International school before the summer holiday. They spend a few hours in the classroom with their future colleagues and meet their future teacher. Children take a tour of the school with their Class teacher and spend time in the classroom getting to know each other.
