Teddies 4 Timor
Teddies 4 Timor We are so excited to launch our Newport Lakes community knitting project for 2014. We will be knitting teddies to support Rotary's Teddies 4 Timor project. We will then hold a sponsorship day late in term 3 for Newport Lakes children to sponsor and name a teddy for $5, with all money raised being used to cover the freight costs for shipping medical and nursing supplies donated to Rotary to the Bairo Pite Clinic in Dili, Timor-Leste. The teddies are then given to sick children when they attend the clinic. We are hoping to knit enough teddies so that each Newport Lakes family can sponsor a teddy if they choose. The teddies are simple and quick to knit and cheap to make, so please ask your friends and extended families to start knitting.

Please see Laura Russell in the Art Room or contact Allana Arapakis, Parent Club representative on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions....Read More

New Double Storey Relocatable for Newport Lakes PS
Newport Lakes Primary School will be receiving a new ultra-modern double
story building. the new building will contain 4 classrooms , offices ,
storage and break-out rooms. They are especially designed to allow schools on smaller sites to make the most of their limited ground space and growing enrolments.
The double-storey buildings have been designed with the following features:
improved floor, wall and roof thermal insulation;
double glazed windows to reduce heat loss;
building management and passive ventilation system;
energy efficient design to reduce energy usage;
external window shades; and
mobile storage units to allow various teaching layouts.
The double storey building will be delivered early in term 2 and will hopefully be fitted out in readiness for the second half of the year. One of the existing portables will then be removed off site when the new classrooms are ready for use. It is envisaged the four Yr. 3/ 4 grades will be housed in the building for terms 3 & 4.
Although the ‘footprint’ of the double storey building is slightly larger than an existing building (new building includes a verandah and stairs at each end) , it is smaller than having 3 portable buildings as was originally planned.
I recently visited a similar building to the one being proposed for our school and I was very impressed with the design, layout, quality and teaching space of the building. They are of a much higher standard than the existing relocatables buildings we have at our school.
Full details of the new double storey building including site plans , relocation plan, architectural drawings and timelines are available on the following links.
