Week 6 – Term 4 2022

Dear parents and carers,


Rugby League Clinics and Gala Day


As part of the school’s comprehensive extra-curricular program, Friday 11th, Monday 14th and Tuesday 15th November, we are having a guest coach, former NLR player Marcus Bai, come to the school to hold Rugby League clinics for students from Prep to Year 9. Marcus Bai will coach the Rugby League students on the Friday with all classes having a session on either the following Monday or Tuesday. Students from the high school and upper primary will have the opportunity to participate in a Gala Day with other schools from around the island. The Gala Day will be held on Saturday, the 12th November.


Further information on the school’s comprehensive sport and extracurricular program for 2023 will be shared with parents in coming weeks.

A big thanks to the P&W and the Ball sub-committee for the many hours that went into preparing for a very successful 2022 Golden Orchid Ball.

If you know your child / children will not be attending Lihir International School in 2023, and you have not yet informed me, please let me know as soon as possible, so that year level numbers and class organisation can be finalised. 2023 classes will be announced in week 9.


Awards Night


In the last week of this term, on Wednesday the 30th of November, the school will host its Awards Night. The evening will consist of various awards for each class and feature class concert items. Further information regarding the Awards Night will be disseminated in coming weeks.


Library Books Return


There will be no more library book borrowing from the beginning of Week 8. Students are requested to return all borrowed books to the library.


Mrs Daimol needs to audit all resources and have them on the shelves ready for borrowing next year.


School Resources Return

These must now be returned to the school for student use next year.


We also request that all home readers to be returned to classrooms by the end of Week 8.
