Athletics Carnival now 4 July, Southern Stars tickets, New lunch menu price list from next term: Term 2 | Week 9

Weekly News


Promising weather this morning gave us hope that the athletics carnival would go ahead on Tuesday. The grounds are rarely affected by rain so we watched the skies and made an early call. At the time of this newsletter’s publication, the carnival is OFF. Sunshine may emerge tomorrow but buses, canteen and families need to know sooner.

The new date (third time lucky) for our carnival is Thursday 4 July. Classes as usual all this week.

Tickets on sale

Last week Southern Stars 2019 COME ALIVE was officially launched at the BlueScope Visitors Centre in Wollongong. The show includes two circus troupes, the NSW Public School Millennial Marching Band, a 600 strong choir, rock band, our Aboriginal dance ensemble, massive student orchestra, the Black Swans, 2000 dancers, talented featured artists, the signing choir and disABILITY students fully integrated with our drama students and vocalists, and much more. Tickets are on sale at

The week that was

Follow the link above to watch all of the learning and dancing that took place last week at Lake Heights Public School. While you're there, have a look at the other videos from earlier times.

Term three lunch orders

Starting next term, lunch order prices will have a small increase. The cost of most menu items on the school lunch order form will be raised by 30-50c next term. The shop has absorbed supplier price increases since the current menu was printed in 2017. We hope parents will find that lunch prices are still relatively modest.

P&C thanks

The P&C would like to thank everyone who purchased pies for this year's Pie Drive. A lot of money was raised for the school. We also received a voucher from Queen Street Bakery which will be used in a raffle later this year. We hope you are enjoying all your pies.
