Students have made a great start to the new term and it was pleasing to see so many arrive on time and in school uniform. Please remember school begins at 8:15am and children can start arriving at school from 7:45am onwards. Please do not send your child to school before 7:45am as teachers will be busy preparing for the school day and supervision of children will not be available.
All children are expected to be collected from school no later than 3.15pm unless they are involved in a pre-arranged after school activity. Siblings are not allowed to wait out the front of the school for brothers or sisters attending an after-school activity.
Parent / Teacher Interviews
Thanks to all parents and carers who attended the Parent / Teacher interviews for all classes from Kindy to Year 10 at the end of last term. It was great to see parents so enthusiastic about their children’s learning. Parents are free to approach teachers at any time during the term to make an appointment to discuss their children’s learning.
LIS PNG Independence Celebrations 2022
Thanks to those parents who attended the initial meeting last term. The next meeting will be advised by the committee once a date has been confirmed.
Next week, the year 8/9 class will go on their long awaited school camp! This trip is to replace that 7/8 camp that was postponed last year due to Covid. The camp has a Civics and Citizenship focus that will involve a visit to Parliament House and interactive sessions with Dame Carol Kidu. We look forward to pictures of the camp and activities in upcoming editions of the Toksave.
A Good Night’s Sleep
It is important for children to have a good night’s sleep. There is no magic number for exactly how much sleep we need, but the Australian Centre for Education in Sleep (ACES) suggests the following as a guide:
Primary school: 10-12 hours per day
High school adolescents: 8-10 hours per day
Adults: 7-9 hours per day
Long Run and Ballgames Carnival
Congratulations to all students on their efforts and spirit during the Long Run and Ballgames events on the last day of term one. We look forward to the Athletics Carnival, which is to be held Wednesday of Week 9 of this term.
