Meckering Primary School is a small school in the Wheatbelt. There were 39 students enrolled in 2009, and as such a small school, there was plenty of support from the local community. The school is an accredited “Crunch and Sip” school, which is a health program to promote drinking water and crunching on fresh fruit or vegetables in their afternoon break. In 2009 Janet Whisson, the Principal, applied for a Small Community Grant through the Avon Catchment Council (now Wheatbelt NRM) to establish a vegetable patch, in order to provide their own crunch.
