Safe 4 Kids Parent Information Evening Tonight

Be sure to come along to our Safe for Kids evening tonight. An information session will be run from 6:30 - 8:30pm and be presented by Holly-ann Martin, the managing director of the safe4kids program.

A separate movie will be shown for children in the year 6 room for any parents who would both like to attend and need to bring children.

This is a program that Holly-ann with class teachers will have covered during the day with each class. We strongly urge parents to attend this session as it will be an ideal follow up for what is a very important yet sometimes tricky subject to handle. We hope to see everyone there!
Term 1 P&C Meetings

Each term, we try to have both day and evening P&C meetings.

The Annual General Meeting of P&C is scheduled for this Tuesday at 9:15am.

At 6pm tonight (30 minutes prior to Safe4Kids meeting) time will be allocated for P&C general business. During this time, any matters that people would like P&C to address or look into during the year can be raised. Anyone who would like to nominate or stand for a position on P&C, but is unable to attend the daytime meeting, is encouraged to let P&C know during this time.

Read to amaze!
Have you ever wondered what to do when your child gets stuck on a word while reading?
Do you have the skills to best support your child to reading success?
Kim McArdle, our newly appointed Instructional Leader, will be running a short information session this Wednesday 15 February at 2pm to provide strategies for parents to use while listening to their children read. The session will take place in the Learning Hub (old library) and has been organised for 2pm so that parents can still pick their children up on time. We urge all parents of children in K-6 to join us for this very informative session.
'The more you read, the more things you know.
The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.'

Last Thursday, a selection of students from Lake Heights competed in our annual swimming carnival. It was a fantastic day with all students trying their best, swimming well and demonstrating excellent behaviour. A special thanks to Mrs Upeski for organising a wonderful day and to all of the parents who assisted. Ribbons will be presented on Wednesday at the School Leaders' assembly at 9.15am.
