Parent Coffee Morning
I hope you will join Dr. Ayers and Katie Foster, both leaders in the Student Support team, this Thursday, 23 February, at 10 am in the US library. They will support parents in understanding the NWEA and how to interpret and respond to the Student Report(2-5) that recently came home.
Please park your car near the ECE and enter via the ECE building. Scan the QR code to register your interest.
Please read the PAFA news section today for important information on re-enrollment, Dragon News, an upcoming Parent Coffee morning, thanks for recent donations to the relief effort in Turkey and Syria, and photos from the ACAMIS basketball competition.
Please monitor and check your children for flu-like symptoms, and if they don't ease quickly, then please seek medical support. We urge all parents not to send children to school if they are unwell and to give adequate time for recovery before returning to the classroom.
Save the date-Mandarin Curriculum Night. Please scan the QR code and register your attendance at either or both sessions.
Wednesday, 22 February, 6.00 pm-7.30 pm EY1-GR 12
Wednesday, 22 February, 8.15 am -9.00 am- ECE parents only
Our Mandarin teachers across the school will explain and showcase how Mandarin is taught and developed across the school from EY1 to grade 12 for students new to the language through to native speakers.
This evening will be a very informative and excellent opportunity to see how the curriculum and your child's language skills are supported and expanded.
ECE parents are welcome to join a session presented by the ECE Mandarin staff with a video, an explanation of the program, and a tour of the classes with the teachers. ECE parents can also attend the evening session to learn about the program from Gr1 and above.
Whether EY1 or grade 5, our students took to cheering, HIS chants, and a mini pep rally with lots of enthusiasm as we watched our HIS basketball men's and women's teams in action!
The players felt the home-court advantage as their adoring supporters cheered them on fiercely and sparked some great basketball.
We felt doubly proud as Ms. Hooper and Mr. Lawrence were coaches of HIS teams!
Well done, and congratulations to all who contributed to the success of HIS hosting this ACAMIS event!
Count Up to 100 Day of Celebration, Friday, 3 March
We are eagerly continuing our count up to 100 days at school and will celebrate on Friday, 3 March, with a full day of Math activities focusing on the number 100.
We ask that all LS students and staff dress up for the day as a person who has reached 100 years as part of our celebration. Please see the newsletter for ideas.
Im hunting in my wardrobe for something appropriate and wish I lived close to my mum! Start preparing; it is sure to be lots of fun!
I hope to see many of you this week at the many functions in the school!
