Premiers' Reading Challenge
The 2015 Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge – which encourages children to read more books and to read more widely – is now open.
The Challenge aims to help children and young people develop a love of reading with the support of parents, teachers, early childhood professionals, schools and classmates.
To take the Challenge, children must read a set number of books and record their efforts online. There are over 9000 titles on the Challenge booklist, which is
updated regularly by an expert panel which includes teachers and librarians.

Earth Hour is a worldwide movement, uniting people to protect the planet. It first began in Sydney in 2007 as a lights-off event and is now celebrated annually by individuals and communities across the world.
Today Newport Lakes joined in, we had our own Power Off event by switching off lights, computers and so on in a bid to save energy and protect the environment.
Students wore “a touch of green” and bought in a gold coin donation for Greenfleet. We rasied a total of $295.00. Well done everyone!
Greenfleet is a not-for-profit organisation who protect the environment by restoring forests and offsetting carbon emissions.

Easter Hat Parade
An Easter Hat Parade will be conducted on the last day of term, Friday 27th March in front of the new portables. All hats need to be made at home. The parade will begin at 9.05am and all grades will be participating in the event. Parents are most welcome to remain when they drop off their children and watch the parade. An assembly will be held after the parade. The Easter raffle will be drawn at this time.
Summer Sports Competition
On Friday, 20th March, many students in grades 5/6 went to four different venues to represent our school in the district’s Summer Sports competitions.
Our two Kanga Cricket teams travelled to Yarraville Gardens and performed very well. They finished in second and third place, combining for nine wins out of twelve matches played.
Our Volleyball teams found the competition quite difficult, but all the students involved had a great day and James was impressed with their application, persistence and team spirit.
The Touch Rugby Gala Day was a success. The students were treated to a clinic, traditional Fijian dance and a sausage sizzle. The rugby wasn’t bad either, with both teams winning and/or drawing several games.
We also sent a Softball team to Lynch Reserve in Altona North. Our team won two games out of six and thoroughly enjoyed the day.
Well done to all students who participated on the day. Thanks also to all the staff who were involved and to the parents who came along and supported our teams....Read More
