Week 3 – Term 3 2023

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

 

NATIONAL EXAMS

 

Next week, year 10 students will sit their Science Practical exam. Ms Baiwan has prepared the students well and the students are keen to complete the exam.

 

SWIM COACH

 

We have been privileged to have former PNG Olympian,  Ms Judith Meauri, coach all LIS students over the past week, assisting them with their swim techniques in the lead up to the swimming carnival later in the term. A special thankyou goes to all the parent helpers who have assisted in the pool over the week. We encourage our parents to volunteer and assist where they can with our sports program.

 

NETBALL

 

Thank you to Ms Langusch and Ms Dovaston for their commitment in preparing the LIS netball teams in the lead up to the inter-school netball carnival with OLSH International School Kavieng last week. The girls played hard, with the primary team winning their category and OLSH Kavieng taking out the high school category.

 

SCREEN TIME

 

Many parents are concerned about the amount of screen time their children have children have on various devices. Recent studies have outlined several detrimental effects that too much screen time can have on children and adolescents.

 

The Australian Institute for Family Studies screen time guidelines recommend:

  • no screen time for children younger than two years.
  • no more than one hour per day for children aged 2-5 years.
  • no more than two hours of sedentary recreational screen time per day for children and young people aged 5-17 years (not including schoolwork).
