Yet another eventful week has taken place in Grade 5 with a number of the formal processes for 2015 well and truly underway. This week the Grade 5 teachers got to meet with all the successful applicants who applied for School Captain, to interview for the final stage. All of these students conducted themselves in a sensational manner and answered the questions truthfully. Each of these individuals should be congratulated on putting themselves out there and applying.

Let me paint you a song…
On Thursday, the school was abuzz with all students and staff partaking in the ‘Count us In’ music initiative. All of L.P.S and copious other schools all sang together ‘Paint you a Song’, in unison, across Australia. The rehearsals and organisation prior to the event certainly paid off with everyone in full voice and showing off the choreographed moves.
News in relation to the Term 4, DEA Badge- Wikispaces, all students across the year level will have their school email addresses activated. This will allow students to access and create their own blogs and Wikispaces as we progress through the term. They are certainly exciting tools that will be used in many subject areas at school. Students are to be reminded of the Cyber Safety expectations when having a functional email address.
