Meckering Primary School is a small school in the Wheatbelt. There were 39 students enrolled in 2009, and as such 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 Commu-nity Grant through the Avon Catchment Council (now Wheatbelt NRM) to establish a vegetable patch, in or-der to provide their own crunch.
