The first school assembly of the year was held on Thursday afternoon when Ms Milburn presented the Key Stage 3 Welcome Assembly. The five tutor groups came together to welcome our new Year 7s and enjoy an afternoon of introductions. Pupils, staff members and school rules and expectations at Melland High School were highlighted before Year 7 pupils discovered which house they were in – Da Vinci, Marie Curie or Galileo. All pupils then had the opportunity to start earning merit points for their house in a school quiz and dance competition. The merit points stacked up as the pupils rose to the challenge. A great start to the year!
