Huge congratulations to our Junior School senior chess team who won, and the junior chess team who came third at the HRIS Chess tournament at Avondale College on Friday. Exciting times! Thanks to Mrs Cliff and Mrs Wickert who accompanied the students and to Mr Holden for his work in the lead up.
Mr Lawson and Mr Giles took the Year 5 and 6 basketball gala day teams last Wednesday to play in the HRIS event. Whilst there were no medals for the teams on the day, they enjoyed playing and represented the school well.
The Years 3 and 4 soccer gala team finally got the opportunity to compete at HRIS on Wednesday after the event was cancelled due to severe weather in Term 3. Thanks to Mr Herbert for preparing the team and Mr Holden for coaching the students on the day.
All classes from K-4 participated in Hunter Life Education sessions recently. Topics varied depending on the grade but included elements such as healthy lifestyles, relationships, feelings and emotions, and the human body. Students thoroughly enjoyed meeting ‘Harold’ and learning more about personal development and health.
Special mention to Billy S (Year 5) who recently wrote to the Prime Minister with his concerns for our country. He was very proud to share his response from Mr Albanese! (click here)

On Friday 28 October, twelve junior school students attended the primary HRIS Chess competition at Avondale. All students represented Lakes Grammar with pride and displayed great teamwork. They started off the day with a friendly warm up game against each other, then played against several other HRIS schools throughout the day. Congratulations to our Open A team who won the competition. Our junior team also did an amazing job and finished third in their division.
