LP Sports Days
We invite parents of our Lower Primary children to join us this week and support their children taking part in Sports Days.

Monday 4th February Prepa 10.00 - 11.00am
Tuesday 5th February Kinder 10.00 - 11.00am
Wednesday 6th February Pre Kinder 10.00 - 11.00 am
Thursday 7th February 1st Grade 10.00 - 11.00 am

Children taking part in Sports Days will be able to go home once the event is over but siblings will not! It is important to us that the children understand that their education is important and that time in school should not be missed unless completely unavoidable.

Please remember to use the emergency car park and bring your hat and sunblock, it’s going to be hot!

School for Parents
This week we will be beginning a set of lectures for our 4th grade students and their parents. These lectures will cover topics related to physical and emotional changes the body undergoes during adolescence as well as the impact that this has on feelings, emotions, friends and family.

The Lecture will be run by COESAL, which is an organization that specializes in helping parents to deal with their children undergoes changes of this age. It gives parents a clearer idea on how to answer question regarding these issues.

The program has proved very useful and popular in years past and will include four sessions as detailed below:

First Session: Thursday 7th February 2013 - 7.00 am or 6.00 pm PAC (Parents only)

Second Session: Tuesday 12th February 2013 - 6.00pm (Science Room/Seminar Room)
