Principal's Word


On Wednesday 6 September our Foundation students for 2018 made their first visit to LPPS.  They had a great morning and we were delighted to have them here for the first time.  While the children went off to their classrooms, parents learnt a little more about our great school and the wonderful programs that we run.  It is a very exciting and sometimes daunting time for our new students and their parents but it went very smoothly and we look forward to our next session which will be on Thursday 19 October at 11.45am.



Year 4 students recently returned from a fantastic trip to the city. They roamed around Federation Square and observed the wonderful artwork in Hosier Lane. The MCG tour allowed students to engage in some exciting sporting activities and gave them an insight into the rich history of the stadium. Students observed a variety of sea life at the Aquarium and gazed upon the city from the towering heights of the Eureka Skydeck!  The trip concluded with an enjoyable visit to the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre. It was definitely a fabulous camp for everyone involved.



Don’t forget that on the last day of term, Friday 22 September, students need to wear their favourite sports gear ready to participate in the 2017 Walkathon.  It will commence with a brief assembly in the hall at 11.40am before everyone moves to their designated areas. If you can spare some time to assist with stamps or drink stands (and you have a Working with Children Check) then we would appreciate your help.  Your support with this annual fundraiser is greatly appreciated and all funds will go to improving our playground areas.


At the conclusion of the Walkathon on Friday 22 September, the students will have their lunch and then be dismissed for the end of term at 2.30pm. I hope that everyone has a happy and safe holiday – we’ll see you back here on 9 October. Don’t forget to bring your hat!
