Week 8 – Term 2 2023

Dear Parents and Caregivers,


Lihir International School is committed to providing excellent learning experiences for children, and sharing those experiences with parents and caregivers.


Next week, Semester 1 student folios will be sent home. The folio displays a range of work samples completed by your child during terms 1 and 2, 2023.


These work samples will give you an indication of the range of topics your child has covered and the level of understanding they have achieved.


Please take time to view all work in the folio with your child and ask them questions about what they have been learning so that they get the chance to discuss their learning with you.


When going through the folio, please keep in mind that all children learn at different rates and have learning strengths in different curriculum areas. This is an opportunity as a parent to offer your child some encouragement and praise.


When you have finished perusing the work samples with your child, please return the folio to the school.




Students will be given their Semester 1 Reports on Thursday 22 June. Written reports are distributed at the end of term 2 for Semester 1 reporting and end of term 4 for Semester 2. If you are going on holidays early, your child will bring their report home next term.


If you have any questions about your child’s report, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher.




A reminder that Monday, the 12th June, is a public holiday for the late Queen’s birthday. I hope everyone enjoys the long weekend.




The last day for term 2 will be Thursday, 22nd June at 12.30pm. Term 3 will commence on Monday, 17th July.




Mrs Laien is busy preparing students for next week’s track and field sports carnival. The twilight track events will be held at 4pm on Wednesday the 21st June followed by a sausage sizzle. All parents, friends and Wantoks are encouraged to attend and support their children’s house. If you would like to volunteer to assist with the BBQ, please see Mr Neville.
