Lakes Grammar Student Representative Council are excited to be leading 'Operation Christmas Child' for the first time this year. This program is run by the Samaritans and brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift-filled Christmas boxes. The boxes are delivered across the globe to people of all ages and focuses on the true meaning of Christmas.
The SRC aim to complete at least 100 shoeboxes and are involving the whole school in this wonderful project. Each class has been allocated an age group and gender and the students will help fill these boxes with small items for needy boys and girls.
Students have until Friday 29 August to bring in items for their class boxes. If parents would like to complete a box as a family, you can collect a box from Junior or Senior School receptions.
We thank our school community for supporting the SRC in such a worthwhile cause. Click here to watch a video on 'Operation Christmas Child'.
The HRIS Cultural Festival is coordinated by staff from a variety of independent schools in the Hunter Region. Its aim is to provide opportunities for students from different performing arts backgrounds to work together on presenting a combined performance of high quality in a variety of areas.
We saw over three hundred students fill the stage at Hunter Valley Grammar School’s Cameron Centre this year with an amazing sound of young, enthusiastic voices that held the audience suspended in time. This year students from Lakes Grammar participated in the Senior Choir, The Wind Orchestra, The String Orchestra and the Dance Ensemble. Students from Years Seven to Eleven participated in the Senior Choir who captivated audiences with their harmonies and the sheer quality of all of the songs presented.
The HRIS Primary Gala Day was held last week in Newcastle. We had some excellent results and a special mention must go to our Year 5/6 A and Year 5/6 B Netball Teams who both claimed the title HRIS Champions and our Year 3-4 Team claimed 3rd. Congratulations to all of our teams that competed at this event.
Secondary students from Lakes Grammar will present a collection of works that explore their view of the world. The works range from emerging art students in Year 7 through to more experienced artists in Year 12.
