Principal's Word

WELCOME—TERM 2

A very warm welcome back to LPPS to all of our families for the start of Term 2 – we hope that everyone has had a very enjoyable and relaxing break.

 

There are many exciting learning opportunities planned for this term which add to the core work that we do in literacy and numeracy. There are camps organised for the Year 6 and Year 5 students – to Phillip Island and to Ballarat respectively. Special events such as the Year 6 School    Production and Grandparents Day for Foundation students both will be held in May. There are a number of incursions and excursions planned for various year levels and children from Years 3 to 6 will be involved in cross country events.

 

The focus for teachers this term is to continue the very productive work that we started in term 1 in our Professional Learning Communities. All teachers are collaborating within their teams: analysing student data, planning curriculum programs, preparing the learning sessions and evaluating the impact of their teaching. Reports will be prepared throughout the term and Parent – Teacher Interviews will be held on the evening of Thursday 7 June and the morning of Friday 8 June. In the afternoon of Friday 8 June teachers will be consolidating their planning for term 3. It will be a designated Curriculum Day when students will not be required to attend.

 

Students in Years 3 and 5 will be completing their NAPLAN testing on 15 – 17 May. Information will be sent home to parents shortly. Students in Years 4-6 will also be participating in the annual Attitudes to School Survey. Again, more information about this will be issued soon.

 

FOUNDATION 2019 ENROLMENT

We have had quite a few tours for 2019 prospective parents and students and anticipate that there will be many more throughout the term. Most tours are held each Wednesday morning, however alternative arrangements can be made if necessary. There will be a special evening tour held on Tuesday 15 May starting at 6pm. If you are already a member of our school community and have a child beginning school next year, please contact the Office for enrolment information.

 

ANZAC DAY

Langwarrin Park Primary School ANZAC Day Commemorative Assembly will be held on Friday April 27 to allow students, teachers and parents the opportunity to reflect as a community on the ANZAC spirit and the great contribution that so many have made on behalf of all Australians on battlefields and in peacekeeping operations. Everyone is welcome to join us.

 

SUPERVISION

Could parents/carers please be advised that teachers provide yard supervision before school from 8.45 – 9:00am; throughout the school day at recess and lunchtime; and after school from 3.30 – 3.45pm.  Students on school grounds outside these times will not be supervised. Parents/carers are requested to ensure that students do not arrive early or stay late after school unless they are attending before or after school care, or a pre-arranged supervised activity (i.e. sports practice). If you have other commitments and these impact on drop off and pick up times then you might like to take up the option of before and after school care through Camp Australia which is situated on the school premises.


Have a fantastic term everyone!
