Welcome Mrs Briggs

LHPS welcomes our new teacher, Mrs Briggs. Mrs Briggs is working with 4/5 on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. She recently relocated back to Wollongong with her family, all the way from Goulburn.

Originally a Wollongong girl, Mrs Briggs moved to Goulburn 13 years ago to start a teaching position at Goulburn West Public School but always wanted to eventually return to her hometown. Her special interests are in environmental sciences and the occasional delve in to music. She thoroughly enjoys teaching maths and creative arts. Mrs Briggs is looking forward to working closely with students, staff and parents and getting to know everyone. She would like to thank the parents, children and staff for such a warm and friendly welcome.

Paper planes

What a fun and exciting week we had. Firstly, all the hard work in and out of the classroom can be seen. Then an afternoon of building, flying, rebuilding, trialling paper plane designs with family and friends, for the launch of the amazing "The Fathering Project". So many great photos and videos, that there are two videos available to view this week.
