Wacky Wednesday!


Week 8 of Term 3 appeared to be a little more WACKY than usual.

It all started with a shoe on the wall….
Wednesday saw the Preps arrive at school with socks on their hands, undies on their head, shirts on backwards, work was getting done underneath tables, students raising their legs instead of their hands, clapping their feet and not their hands and some students even ate their snack for lunch and their lunch for snack. This all happened for one reason and one reason only. It was WACKY WEDNESDAY! It was a terrific day, which all of the Prep students enjoyed!

Friday morning saw a massive influx of dads as the annual Father’s Day Breakfast was held. It was great to see so many dads enjoying the delicious bacon and egg rolls and a blueberry muffin or 3. Once the bell rang, the Prep students led the way into each of their classrooms to teach their dads a few things. The subitising, counting and addition skills of the dads was very impressive.

As we approach the final two weeks of Term 3 (that is hard to believe), the Prep students are very excited and ready to jump right into their first lot of swimming lessons. These will take place on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of both weeks and are a highlight of the term. The Preps are sure to make a splash. A big thank you to all of the parents who are assisting throughout the two weeks of swimming.
With two weeks of the Term left the events certainly don’t stop! Next Friday the 9th of September will see the JSC Pyjama Day take place. Students are invited to wear their PJs to school for a gold coin donation to raise money for the Royal Children’s Hospital.

During the last week of Term the LPS Footy Day will be Thursday 15th of September. The students can wear their team colours and enjoy a hot pie with their footy lunch.

Finally just a quick reminder that the Prep Science Morning Club will be this coming Monday the 5th of September starting at 8.15am in the Science room. It is set to a fantastic morning. Please feel free to attend.

Have a great weekend!

The Prep Team.
