Pies are provided by Queen Street Bakery.

Run, run, run

Congratulations to all students who participated in last weeks District Cross Country. You did us all proud with your effort, determination and willingness to participate.

A big thank you to the P&C for the amazing gifts made available at last weeks Mothers Day Stall. There were so many to choose from. Thank you to the mums who gave up their time to stock and run the stall. Also a big congratulations to everyone on Adopt A Farmer mufti day. We raised over $230.

Southern Stars cake stall

To help raise funds towards the cost of buses, material and sewing we will be holding a cake stall this Saturday 18 May at school. This is the day for voting and Lake Heights Public School is a polling station. All types of cakes, muffins, cupcakes and slices would be really appreciated. Please drop off your kind donations to the kitchen or to Miss Hunter or Mr Hurd by Friday afternoon 17 May. Thank you to all those who have offered to help with selling the cakes on the day.

Keep an eye on our calendar for all the Kindergarten orientation days in term four. Keep an eye on our Google calendar at LINK


Your opinion counts

Live Life Well @ School (LLWatS) is a joint initiative between the Department of Education and the Ministry of Health and aims to get students, more active more often and to develop healthy eating habits. We value your opinion and would love for as many families as possible to complete an online survey about our school's healthy eating and physical activity programs.
