Walk-a-thon

On Friday 16th May all the students (prep -6) will be involved in a Walk-a- thon to raise funds for the school. All profits from the Walk-a-thon will be directed towards the purchase of sports equipment for yard use and books for the classrooms. We believe the Walk-a-thon reinforces the school’s aims of exercise and fitness, promotes a balanced and healthy lifestyle and provides a fun and enjoyable way of raising much needed funds for our school.

The Friendship Bus Stop Competition

NLPS' Junior School Council would like to thank all of the children who submitted an entry into the Friendship Bus Stop Design Competition. We had an enormous number of entries handed in, and it was fantastic to see so many families get involved together at home.

 

A judging panel of five staff members came together to shortlist the final four entries. Every student in the school was then given a red dot, which they stuck onto the design that they liked best. During today's assembly (3rd April), the winning entry was announced. This design will be made into a permanent sign somewhere in our school yard for children to go to during recess and lunchtime when they are looking for someone to play with. Junior School Council will be meeting soon to discuss the best spot for the sign to go.

 

Congratulations to Sarah in 5/6W whose entry was selected as the favourite by the majority of students at our school.

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:

Ø improved floor, wall and roof thermal insulation;

Ø double glazed windows to reduce heat loss;

Ø building management and passive ventilation system;

Ø energy efficient design to reduce energy usage;

Ø external window shades; and

Ø 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.

House Athletics Carnival

On Thursday, 20th March all students in grades 2-6 went to the Newport Athletics Track to compete in our annual Athletics Carnival.

We hit the jackpot with the weather and the attitude and enthusiasm of all the students was pleasing to see. After some great individual performances and plenty of lead changes throughout the day the final results of the carnival were in fourth place Red House with a total of 1176 points, third place Green House with a total of 1258 points, second place Blue House with 1334 and in first place Yellow House with a total of 1340 points

Terry Antoniadis will be going through the results to decide which students will represent the school at the District Athletics Carnival in term three.

A big thank-you must go to all the staff and parents who volunteered to assist on the day. Days like this are not possible without your assistance
