Healthy Lunches

Parents are encouraged to pack a healthy lunch for your children to bring to school for recess and lunch. The school encourages parents to pack food items such as fruit, sandwiches, yogurt, veggie sticks, pieces of cheese, a muesli bar, biscuits, piece of cake, muffins, wraps, salad, boiled eggs, rice, garden food etc. Twisties, crisps, hot chips, chocolates, lollies and un-cooked Maggi noodles are not allowed at school.

 Students are encouraged to bring a bottle of water each day that can be refilled at the school.  Cordial, soft drinks and other sugary drinks are not allowed at school.

Parents are encouraged to purchase from the Canteen on Fridays rather than buying food elsewhere and dropping it into school.

From the Deputy Principal

It has been great seeing so many parents and community members getting involved in the LIS community - attending P & W and School Council meetings; helping with Canteen; listening to reading; attending the recent Problem-solving and Soundwaves information sessions; supporting Saturday morning soccer (and the Coffee shop); and visiting classrooms on 'World Maths Day' on Wednesday.

Thanks to all! Our students are fortunate to be part of such a dedicated community.

Ms Langusch

World Maths Day Fun!

VIP Champions!
