The students and staff here at Merrick Preparatory School have been busy bees, and we wanted to share some updates with you.

We all are so excited to be back on campus and we’ve already accomplished so much in just our first month! 

From Classroom to Rapids:

We kicked off the new school year with river rafting in Ottawa – definitely a highlight for everyone involved! It was so much fun being out on the water and enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Nation’s capital. Not only was the rafting trip a great opportunity for the kids to get to know each other better, but it was also a chance to challenge themselves and push their boundaries. They learned a lot about working together as a team, and had so much fun in the process.

Exploring the Jewels of the St. Lawrence River:

Not less exciting was our cruise on the St. Lawrence River where we boated along the scenic shores of one of the most beautiful and bio-diverse regions in North America. A wonderful occasion for our students to learn more about the area, the history of the St. Lawrence River, its ecosystem and importance to the region – all while enjoying time outdoors in the fresh air and soaking up the autumn sun.

Connecting with others at the IPM 2022:

Merrick Prep’s Admissions Team was thrilled to be a part of the International Plowing Match & Rural Expo 2022 in Kemptville. The event was a fantastic opportunity for us to introduce Merrick Prep to potential students and their families. We received a lot of amazing feedback from the crowd – especially for our raffle gift basket which was filled with selected goodies from Merrickville stores.

Our next event:

Don’t miss our Open House on November 15. It will be a great opportunity to see what our school has to offer and learn more about the uniquely tailored educational experience that we guarantee to our local day and international boarding students.

We are so grateful for being part of Merrickville’s wonderful community and thank you for making our first month back on campus such a success!

Your ongoing support is truly appreciated and we can’t wait to see what the rest of the year has in store for us.
