HistoryEdit

In 1976, Merritt Callaghan School was built at the expense of discontinuing more localized intermediate education that was taking place at Tignish Intermediate, St. Edward Intermediate, Alberton Intermediate, and other schools. The decision was made to merge all of these former schools into one by then–Minister of Education, Bennett Campbell.[1] Though some were against the initial change, many now feel it was an appropriate move.

Extracurricular activitiesEdit

The school offers many sport activities, such as soccer, intramurals, and more. Holidays are celebrated in the school with activities such as the Christmas Prom, as well as Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day–related activities.
