Weekly News
Education Week Success
We had a fantastic time celebrating Education Week last week. We were very proud of the students who danced and sang at Warrawong Plaza on Tuesday. They represented our school exceptionally well and their performances lit up the stage. A special thanks to all of the family and friends that came along to cheer them on. It was an exciting day. Open classrooms on Wednesday were also a hit. The students were beaming as they got to share their classrooms and playgrounds with their families. Thanks again to all of those who came along to celebrate Education Week with us.
2018 Kindergarten Transition to School

Lake Heights Public School is excited to announce our 2018 Transition to School program.

Details have been confirmed and added to a new section on our school website, which can be accessed here: We are especially excited to start this year's transition program with a four week playgroup experience. The playgroups will be an exciting way for parents and students to meet and interact with teachers in an informal setting.
NAPLAN online

The National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) is an annual assessment for students in Years 3, 5, 7 and 9.

Planning has begun to move NAPLAN from a pen and paper assessment to an online assessment. A fact sheet is available for parents and carers to help understand the transition process, which includes a NAPLAN Online School Readiness Test to be held Monday 21 August in our classrooms.

Book Fair and Sausage Sizzle

As part of this year's Book Week celebrations, Lake Heights is holding a Book Fair. Drop in to the Learning Hub on Tuesday 29 August before or after school to browse and perhaps make a purchase.

Students will have opportunities to browse and buy during the day in class groups.

Pre-order forms available soon at the Hub can be used to order many of the titles available.


Students are encouraged to come dressed as a book character for the day. There will be a short parade on the school stage as soon as the school day gets under way at 8:55am.


There is also a sausage sizzle lunch for the students. Order forms available at the Hub or download and print one here.

Rides and Fun Day: 20 September

Plans are well underway for our Rides and Fun Day on Wednesday 20 September this term.

The Zoomer, Jurassic Park Castle, a large inflatable slide, The Tea Cups and Mini Golf are all booked for the afternoon which starts at 12PM and finishes at 4:00.

$25 pre-ordered wristbands give 4 hours of unlimited rides ($30 on the day). Pre-orders are available using the order forms sent home with students. Forms are also available at the Hub or download and print one here.

Showbags at various prices can also be ordered using this form.

Can you spare an hour to help? We're looking for volunteers to join the team and share the load so that organisers can spend some time with their children as well. Can you lend a hand on the BBQ, cake stall or games stalls? Just an hour.

Please reply to our Facebook post or leave your name at the office. Your help will be much appreciated.
