Welcome to our final newsletter for the term. It’s been an extremely busy term. Thank you for the support that we continue to receive from our community. LPPS has continued to provide lots of opportunities for our students and we look forward to the second half of the year.
Week 10 has been a great way to conclude the term, with the year 5/6 class excursion to the Migration Museum, NAIDOC Week in the Mall excursion, NAIDOC Week assembly and the smoking ceremony and a performance for our year 1’s by Patch Theatre Company.
I also had the pleasure of attending the Shark Cup baseball tournament held at Seaton High on Wednesday. Le Fevre Peninsula PS had the highest participation of all schools and entered 3 teams. The students were outstanding in both effort and attitude. This carnival was a culmination of 6 weeks of training with students from the Seaton HS Baseball programme. The new sports uniform looked fantastic and our students were very proud to wear the tops. Special thanks to 'Fletcher’s Slip' who sponsored our new tops.
Reminder, the first day of Term 3 is a student free day!
COVID 19 Update
We have been very fortunate to have not been overly impacted by COVID during Term 2. Whilst we have had a few staff who have had COVID (including myself), most day to day learning activities have continued as normal. At times we have been required to join classes or cancel NIT lessons due to the lack of availability of relief teachers, however both staff and students have been very understanding. Thank you to the families who have been vigilant with keeping sick students home.
Outstanding Achievement Awards – Term 2
At the end of each term, two students from each class are nominated by their teacher to receive the Principal’s Outstanding Values Award. Each student was presented with a certificate at today's assembly.
Congratulations to all of them on such a successful term.

Enjoy the Break
On behalf of all the staff, I would like to wish you all a happy and safe break and we look forward to seeing you back on Tuesday 26th July.
A huge thank you to Fletcher's Slip for their generous grant that we were able to purchase school sports tops that our students can proudly wear to all interschool sports events.
Stay tuned as we will also be purchasing some football guernseys to match!
On Wednesday this week, 25 of our year 5/6 students travelled to Seaton High School to compete in the Shark Cup Baseball Carnival.
The Shark Cup involves introducing both baseball and softball to primary school students as part of the Diamond Sports Program at Seaton High. Students have been attending weekly trainings conducted by students of Seaton High in the lead up to this event as a part of their studies.
They had a very positive day with some great moments. Every one of them represented the school with pride and showed outstanding behaviour throughout the day.
We are excited to launch our offical Le Fevre Peninsula Primary School Facebook page. This will be used to keep our community updated with the fantastic learning going on around our school as well as another platform to remind families of important diary dates.
A friendly reminder this is not our main source of communication and any matters regarding the school or students must be done through the Front Office or classroom teacher.
