Thank you to all of those that wrapped themselves up in scarves and beanies on Thursday to raise money for the Wollongong Homeless Hub.
As a school we raised a fantastic $174.15. Funds raised will assist the Hub to support its clients and provide such things as care packages, meals, shelter, sleeping bags and tents.
We loved having the Illawarra Mercury photograph some of our rugged up students.
Regional Cross Country
Congratulations to our four Regional Cross Country representatives on their fantastic effort last Friday.
They ran in cold and tricky conditions and should be proud of their results. Each of the boys placed between 50-70.

School Multicultural Speeches
We look forward to hearing a variety of engaging and insightful speeches from today. Classroom teachers will be listening to class speeches over the next three days, with some students being asked to present their speeches again to the primary students and staff later this week.
Teachers will be assessing the manner, matter and method the entrants employ in presenting their speeches. They will expect speakers to be confident and engaging. The prepared speeches need to show an understanding of multiculturalism, and be well developed and interesting.
As the mornings are getting cooler and then the days warm up, children are wearing jumpers to school and then leaving them on the playground. We have an increasing number of jumpers without names outside The Learning Hub. We would appreciate if parents could take a moment to look through and see if any belong to their child.
Take a peek inside our classrooms!
New weekly newsletter section!!
Great things are happening inside our classrooms at Lake Heights Public School and we want you to see them.
For that reason, we're creating a new weekly newsletter section called, "This week in..." which will provide you with a mini glimpse into each classroom.
To start off this new section, we'd like to provide you with an insight into some fantastic writing.
Kindergarten have been learning how to start their sentences with a capital letter.
Students in K/1 have been learning how to use question marks to ask questions. They will then go home and ask their family members questions about their past. This will tie in with their History unit, "Families: Past and Present".
