My MerIT is a safe, online area where you can store information on your progress in learning and achievements – a portfolio of your life! All pupils in S1-6 are encouraged to recognise and record their achievements, firstly in their Learning Diaries. These are then in-put into our online recording system at www.mymerit.net.
Why is it important to recognise and record achievements?
By recognising all the things we have achieved, we can note our progress on how we are doing across different aspects of the school and our lives. It is often a difficult task for pupils and adults, alike, to identify what we are good at and the skills and abilities we have. Our MyMerIT profiles can be used by parents/carers and our teachers to see how we are doing. By storing all this data online, we have a massive portfolio of everything we have achieved, so that when it comes to writing job applications, CVs and University/College statements, it is easy to identify areas of strength, skills and abilities.
