Week 8 – Term 1 2022

Dear Parents and Caregivers,


It was great to host Newcrest CEO, Mr Sandeep Biswas, CFO Ms Zoe Payne and Ms Sherry Duhe at the school yesterday. We received very positive feedback on the quality of education, as well as the school and community spirit at LIS. The admin team and teaching staff, along with parents and wider Newcrest community, can be very proud of our wonderful school.


There will be a School Council meeting at 6pm on Thursday, 24th March in the Meeting Room. All our Councillors are encouraged to attend. If you are interested in finding out more about the School Council, please give me a call or make a time to come in for a chat.


Parent / Teacher Interviews


Parent / Teacher interviews for all classes from Prep to Year 10 will be held between 3.00pm and 6.00pm on Monday the 28th and Tuesday the 29th of March. Interviews are for 15 minutes. Bookings will be open from Monday and parents can either come into the office, call or email Mrs Romaso-Daimol to make their appointment times. Kindy interviews are on Monday only.
