Week 8 – Term 4 2020

Dear Parents and Caregivers,


Year 8 National Exam Results


Lihir International School has performed extremely well in the year 8 National Examinations. LIS was ranked 1st in New Ireland Province out of more than 70 schools. The school also had the highest school average for Maths and English. LIS student, Iva Kola, was ranked first in New Ireland Province out of more than 3000 students. Well done to the year 8 students and all the teachers who have helped them to achieve this milestone!


Awards Assemblies


The school’s Awards Assemblies will be held next Wednesday, the last week of school. As mentioned last week, there will be two Awards Assemblies this year on 2nd December. 

Prep to year 4 will have a morning awards assembly at 9.00am, with the year 5 – 9 classes’ Awards Night that evening, commencing at 6.00pm. Students are to wear their formal uniform for their awards assembly. Social distancing practices will be adhered to and parents/carers will be temperature checked on arrival.

To limit numbers, we ask that a maximum of two adults per family attend each presentation assembly. If you have a small child, you may bring them to either assembly, however, we ask that students from the junior school do not attend the evening assembly. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
