Week 6 – Term 1 2023

Dear Parents and Caregivers,


School Council


There will be a School Council meeting at 6pm on Thursday, 23rd March in the year 9/10 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 3pm and 6pm on Monday the 27th and Tuesday the 28th of March. Parents will be advised when they can make bookings. Mrs Collins will advise Kindy parents of interview times.


LIS PNG Independence celebrations 2023


There will be a meeting for National parents in the undercover area of the school on Saturday, 18th March at 11am to begin preparations for the school’s Independence Day in September. At this meeting, an organising committee will be formed to work with the school in organising the event.


Library and Textbooks


There have been some incidents of careless and unnecessary damage to school library and textbooks when they have been taken home. It is very costly to source and supply students with these resources on Lihir. We ask parents and carers to keep an eye on these school resources when used at home. Parents and carers will be charged replacement costs for damaged or lost books.


Absenteeism and Lateness


If your child is going to be absent from school or is sick, please give the school a call or send an explanatory note with your child upon return to school. If your child is away for more than two days, parents are required to contact the school.


Children who arrive to school in the morning after assembly begins are considered late. If your child is going to be late, please inform the school in advance, or send an explanatory note with your child. Parents will be contacted for unexplained absences.




  • The chewing of Beetle Nut is prohibited on school grounds
  • Parents are asked to refrain from bringing dogs into the school grounds
  • Parents are free to deliver lunch to their children, however sitting with your child and/or feeding them during lunch is not encouraged.
