What's going on in the garden?

An update from Ms Stehr

New students joined our garden group this term and they are thoroughly enjoying the experience. During the cold winter months the students have spent their time ensuring that all the gardens beds are mulched and fed so that we can harvest vegetables such as brussel sprouts, cabbages, sweet potatoes, beans, celery and herbs. We have also been getting planter boxes ready for the planting of passion fruit vines and have sown seeds ready for spring. The garden group will also begin sprucing up the garden with the sanding and painting of the garden benches.

Parent Teacher Conversations

The feedback after our last Parent-Teacher conversations back in Term 1, was so positive that we've decided to once again, provide an opportunity for parents to sit down and have an informal conversation with teachers about how their child is progressing and working within the school environment. 

Keep your eyes out for appointment notes, being sent home this week. To ensure that you don't miss out on your preferred times, return the completed notes to your child's teacher as soon as possible.

Leaders in the making
Last Tuesday, ten students from Lake Heights Public School attended the Student Leadership Conference 2016 at Warrawong High School. Other schools in attendance were Port Kembla Public School, Kemblawarra Public School, Warrawong Public School and Cringila Public School. All of the workshops were run by students from Warrawong High School and were aimed at developing students' leadership skills. Abigail Esteves and Adam Churcher shared their thoughts on the day. 
Our first group was the sport one. It was really fun because we played games and learned new games. Plus we got to meet the old school captains! It was a great day yesterday because it showed that eve though we don't know anybody, we can become friends straight away. I loved yesterday so next year, if you get invited, you need to go! By Abigail EstevesIn the team building activity, there were two games, 'Tangled' and 'Minefield'. You had to wear a blindfold and make your way through a maze of tables without seeing. In the second game, 'Tangled' you had to link hands in a funny way and try to untangle yourself to make a circle, without letting go of anyone's hands. It was a lot of fun.  By Adam Churcher
Off and racing!
Last Friday, some of our rising athletics stars took to the field again to represent Lake Heights, this time at the Regional Athletics Carnival in Canberra. Lake Heights was represented by Adam Churcher, Palu Tausala, Phoenix Duncan, Darnell Te Ahuru and William Stojcevski. The boys were up against some stiff competition but all proved themselves to be fierce competitors. Congratulations on a huge achievement, boys!
What's for lunch?
Just a reminder that lunches can be ordered from the shop every Monday and Friday at very reasonable prices. Order forms are available from classrooms, the office, as well as The Hub. Grab a few to take home!
