Grandparents Day

Join us on Tuesday 18 October!

They say that grandparents are the best kind of grown ups and at Lake Heights, we know what an important role grandparents play in the lives of our students. Whether it be helping before and after school, cheering on a sporting team or simply being a smiling face and a shoulder to lean on, grandparents have a special part to play. This year, Lake Heights Public School will be joining with many others around the country, to celebrate the vital role grandparents play in our day-to-day lives.

Grandparents are invited to join us for morning tea, class time together and a free sausage sizzle lunch. Visit your grandchildren's classes and join in some fun learning and sharing. Morning tea will be served in the library from 11.30am. Class time starts at 11.45. We hope you can join us!

Parent Teacher Conversations

It's not too late to schedule your parent-teacher conversation for this week. Parent-Teacher conversations are an important opportunity to check in on your child's progress and discuss any issues that may have arisen over the past term. 

Students should have received a confirmation slip with a confirmed appointment time from their teacher. If you haven't received your confirmation time, are unsure of the timing or need to reschedule, please see your child's teacher as soon as possible to avoid missing your appointment. We look forward to catching up for a chat this week and once again, welcome any feedback on the process.

KidzWish Clothing Bin

KidzWish is a charitable organisation that has been lending a hand to help Illawarra and South Coast children who are sick, disadvantaged or have a disability, since 2004.

Lake Heights Public School has recently decided to support the charity by placing a clothing donation bin on our school grounds. The bin is located at the back entrance to the school, next to the basketball court and is emptied every second day. We encourage you to support local families in need by placing used clothing in good condition into the bin. Please note the bin is for clothing only and toys etc should not be left for collection.
Lost Property - Collect before the end of term
The end of the term is fast approaching and once again, unclaimed uniforms and lunch boxes are mounting up in the Lost Property hallway near The Hub. There are jumpers in every size without names! At the end of term, any remaining items will be donated to the KidzWish charity bin so please take the time to check for any items belonging to your family. If you know your child is missing an article of clothing, please take one that matches the missing item. There are also a small number of trays, plates  and containers left over from our International Food Fair earlier this term. They have now been placed in Lost Property for collection.
Good Sports
Our sport shed has been looking a little dry over the past few weeks, but Bunnings Warrawong have come to the rescue with a fabulous donation of footballs, netballs and tennis balls.  We can't thank Bunnings enough for this very generous contribution and all of the students are very excited about putting their new equipment to good use.
