Thank you to Cockburn Gateway Shopping City for the wonderful gift basket that we received today.

COVID-19 Update

On 22 March State Premiers and Chief Ministers agreed that at this time schools will remain open through to the end of the current school term to support students whose parents choose to send them to school. This does not alter our previous advice.

 

Teachers are not expected to provide work packages for students whose parents have chosen to keep them home without seeking medical advice, before the end of Term1.   The priority for staff is to maintain focus on classroom learning programs.

 

 

The Education Department is working to provide online access to resources for parents, caregivers and students.  This will be through the Learning at home website.  The website is now available and resources will continue to be added over the coming weeks.

 

Our teachers will continue to use Connect as their primary source of teaching resources.  The materials published on the Learning at home website will also be available in Connect.
 

Secondary Schooling Scholarship

The Department of Education coordinates a number of financial scholarships, grants and prizes for young people in secondary schools so they can focus on achieving their goals.

 

CONGRATULATIONS to Brody Walsh for being awarded the 2020 Perth Boys Memorial Scholarship.

School Ball and NOVA Camp

Due to the changing conditions and latest advice from the Department of Education and the Health Department, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone both the Year 12 Ball and the NOVA Camp that were due to occur towards the end of this term.

We have made arrangements with the venues to re-schedule these events when the current situation has settled down.

Payments already made will be held until the event is re-scheduled later in the year. Should cancellation occur, all payments will be refunded at that time, however we are very hopeful that we will be able to reschedule these events later in the year.

Parent Teacher Interviews

Following advice from the Department of Education and the Health Department of WA, the parent information evening that was scheduled for Tuesday 17 March has been postponed. Students will be required to attend a normal school day with the planned early closure also cancelled. School will close at 3pm as normal on this day.

 

Should you wish to make contact with your child's teachers, email is the fastest and easiest method at the current time.

 

The school will also be cancelling or postponing events that require large gatherings of people. As such, this week's Harmony/Cultural Day Assembly has been cancelled.

 

As this situation is changing rapidly it is very important that the school has current contact information for all parents and carers. If your details have changed recently please make sure that the school has been updated.

WA Gridiron Representatives

The 2019/2020 WA Gridiron season has just finished, and 2 senior students from Lakeland Senior High School were an integral part of the Perth Blitz Gridiron Club Women's team. The women's team went through the season undefeated, with a convincing 26-8 win in the grand final.

Grace McFillin and April Alan were both first year players in the sport, and excelled with the amazing athleticism and passion.

Only a week after the grand final, the Perth Blitz held their awards night, where the girls also received the following awards:
April Alan:
Women's Players Player
Rookie of the Year

Grace McFillin:
Offensive MVP

These girls, at such a young age, have huge potential for the future in this sport. Congratulations April and Grace.
