Nit Busting
Infestations of head lice are a common occurrence in primary schools and spread easily between students. We are asking all parents to check their child's hair for head lice and if you do find them, please notify your child's teacher so that a note can be sent home to notify other parents of the presence of head lice in a classroom. Teachers are very discreet when handling matters such as these and never disclose information about a particular student to other students. Students are encouraged to minimise the spread of lice by wearing their hair up, preferably in plaits, braids or buns. A little bit of gel, hair spray, hair product or essential oils like tea tree oil can also help to make your child's hair undesirable for head lice. To find out more about head lice and effective, affordable ways to treat them, click here.

Warrawong High School Open Day
District swimming

Well done to all of the students who participated in the District Swimming Carnival last week. It was a great day and our swimmers certainly did us proud.

Former LHPS assistant principal, Mrs Annesley, who was a spectator at the event, had this to say about the students who competed:

Couldn't have said it better ourselves! A very big congratulations to the students involved and many thanks to the parents and grandparents who supported their children on the day. Callum Da Costa will be representing our school in the 50m butterfly event at the regional carnival. Well done, Callum.

Hold on to those coupons!

We're collecting the Coles Sports for School vouchers. Please place any vouchers that you collect into the box in The Hub.

Which high school?

Parents of year six students, now is the time to start thinking about which high school your child is going to attend next year. High schools are different to primary schools in a number of ways. You can read more about public high schools here.

Expression of interest forms for students attending high school in 2019, have been given to students. Please return this form to the school office before 16 March.
