What a fortnight it has been!
I am thrilled to say that our ICAS testing has concluded for 2022 and the students were excellent ambassadors for Lakes, working conscientiously throughout the different testing sessions. We look forward to receiving the results and celebrating student success later in the year.
The Father’s Day Breakfast held on Friday 2 September was a success with scores of families joining us in the Senior school hall for entertainment, history projects, breakfast, and good company. Many thanks to all families for their support and our staff team who put on a lovely function.
Week 8 saw a range of sporting gala days held for the 3-6 students.
Mrs Harmer, Ms LeRay, and Mrs Cliff accompanied our Years 4, 5 and 6 teams to the HRIS netball gala day.
All players represented their school proudly and played with smiles on their faces.
Congratulations to all teams for your excellent effort, attitude, and teamwork. We would like to give a special mention to our Year 4 junior team who played at HRIS for the first time. During the day they played nine games and finished third in their pool and sixth overall.
Tuesday saw Mr Worrall and Mrs Lusted take the Year 5 and 6 oztag teams to compete at the Central Coast oztag gala day. The teams compete well and enjoyed the opportunity to represent the school.
The junior school went in two different directions on Thursday.
Mrs Harmer, Ms Lutze, Mrs McPherson, and Mrs Albert took the concert band and the Stage 3 choir to the IPSHA Cultural Festival in Sydney. After a full day of rehearsals and a visit to Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, the students performed beautifully at the concert on Thursday evening.
Mrs Solomons and Mr Summers took the Years 3 and 4 oztag teams to compete at their gala day. Both teams came third in their pools and had a great day!
Unfortunately, due to the weather, the Years 3 and 4 boys HRIS soccer gala day was postponed.
