A disgruntled former school principal will be holding a public meeting on Monday to demand the de-merger of Griffith High and Wade High.
The meeting will be held at the Coro Club at 6.30pm by Kevin Farrell, who has been an angry critic of the Murrumbidgee Regional High School merger from the beginning.
"The future of public high school education in Griffith is at a tipping point," Mr Farrell said.
"We see the two Griffith sites struggling, losing students to the private system, and with chaos generated by the NSW Department of Education from the top down."
The meeting will be attended by Member for Murray Helen Dalton, who is a former teacher and another long-standing critic of the "rushed, underfunded merger".
"So far we've had over 1000 classes uncovered between the two high schools, which is totally unacceptable," Mrs Dalton said.
"We've got good teachers here who are just trying to do the right thing under extreme circumstances, but they're under a huge amount of pressure."
Mrs Dalton said she'd be lobbying the government for more teaching staff and a second principal to manage the two sites, however she said she would not be pushing for a full-blown de-merger at this point in time.
"You need to pick your battles," Mrs Dalton said.
The meeting is free and open to the general public, whether they be teachers, parents, students, or concerned members of the community.
The NSW Teachers Federation will be holding a separate meeting of MRHS teachers in the first term of 2020 to discuss their "concerns" with the current school model.
