Strive for Excellence
The school trophy display is now located at The Hub for easier viewing. The collection of trophies on display not only showcases the rich and diverse history of the school, but also represents some of the awards that students still have time to strive for as Presentation Day approaches. This year, Presentation Day will be held on Wednesday 9 December, at 9:30-11:00am.  Our Presentation Day generally includes a school performance item and the presentation of awards for a variety of achievements across the year. It is an important event on the school calendar and one which is not to be missed. For more information and a list of awards on offer, please see our school website.

DayForDaniel
 
Check out what students had to say after participating in lessons teaching them to RECOGNISE, REACT and REPORT situations where they feel unsafe.

Last Friday, Lake Heights joined thousands across the country in donning red to honour the memory of Daniel Morcombe and promote the very important message of child safety.

The Daniel Morcombe Foundation Inc. was established by the parents of Daniel Morcombe, after their son Daniel was abducted and murdered in December 2003 while waiting to catch a bus. The Foundation was established as a lasting legacy to Daniel and now has two main aims; to educate children on how to stay safe in a physical and online environment and to support young victims of crime.

The day was all about teaching students the skills to deal with situations where they feel unsafe through three key steps:

RECOGNISE - encourages students to be aware of their surroundings and to recognise body clues in situations where they don't feel safe. REACThelps students to consider choices that may keep them safe or help make them safe again as quickly as possible. REPORT - encourages students to report unsafe incidents to an adult. Students across the school engaged in lessons, conversations and learning experiences which promoted these skills. Thanks to the SRC for helping to spread the message with decorations around the school, and to all of the parents and students who got involved with the day.
