About our school

Merewether Heights Public School, located in the school district of Newcastle, was established in 1970. The school has always enjoyed the support and interest of the parent community.

It is a friendly school where the students have made positive efforts to be cooperative and caring towards one another. The school is proud of its fine academic standards.

Students are encouraged by parents and teachers to pursue learning success and to achieve to the best of their ability, and this is reflected in the school motto Strive for Excellence.

The school is officially open on school days from 9.00 am to 3.25 pm. At other times, including public holidays and weekends, the school is closed.
