During the past few weeks we have loved having the opportunity to use digital technology in new and exciting ways. We hope to continue with this journey, and encourage all parents to stay connected via Seesaw, and also to use TEAMS if you need to have a ‘face to face’ conversation with your child’s teacher/s.
On Tuesday the 16th of May, we will be holding our School Association Annual General Meeting at 7pm. Due to the current restrictions we will be doing this online via the following Zoom link: https://tasedu.zoom.us/j/66437671337?pwd=ZXNvMFBPbWVKUzI1eFRlYUhZVXg2dz09 (this will also be advertised via Facebook and Seesaw closer to the date). This is a great way of joining without having to leave the comfort of your house! We have several members retiring at the AGM and will be looking for new members to join this very important group, including executive members (e.g. Secretary & Treasurer) If you would like to have a voice in your children’s education or have some ideas for fundraising we encourage you to nominate via the following form. I am happy to second any parent, grandparent of community member who is willing to join.
Do you or someone you know that lives locally have a child born in 2016? Enrolment for 2021 is now open, and we ask that anyone intending to send their child to Kinder at LPS complete an enrolment form or Out of Area Expression of Interest form (form will depend on your address).
Please remember to provide the following documents with all enrolment forms:
- Child ID - Birth Certificate / passport
- Enrolling parent's ID - Birth certificate / passport / Tasmanian Driver's Licence
- Child's immunisation record - Child Health Blue Book / printout from Immunisation Register
- Proof of Address - utility bill / bank statement / ATO assessment / rental agreement
Kinder Acceptance letters will start being sent in the coming weeks, and information about Pre Kinder will be sent at a later date.
Over the coming weeks our administration staff will be conducting audits on all student files. This is to ensure our files contain the required enrolment documentation as set out by the DoE enrolment policy. Documentation required includes student ID, enrolling parent ID, immunisation records and proof of address. We will be in contact with you if are required to provide any of these documents.
From the commencement of Term 2, 2020 all Tasmanian Government Schools from Kindergarten to Year 12 will need to implement restrictions on the use of mobile phones by students at school. The Minister for Education and Training announced this policy in November, 2019.
Kindergarten to Year 12 – “Off and away all day”
The decision to restrict the use of mobile phones by students during the school day will support schools to minimise distraction from learning and encourage healthy and positive personal interactions.
The policy has been developed in consultation with schools, School Associations and students.
From the start of the school day to the end of the school day, students must have their mobile phones switched off and stored. All communication with students during the school day must go through the school office.
This policy applies to all students, unless they meet the requirements of an approved exemption.
Exemptions may be considered where students require the use of their mobile phone for educational adjustments, monitoring health conditions or other extenuating circumstances. There may also be instances where teachers permit students to use their mobile phones for educational purposes.
If you would like to discuss an exemption for your child or have any questions about the policy please contact email@example.com
We have loved seeing our students back in classrooms and in the playground.

FREE BOOKS! Sam, our Library Legend, has been 'refreshing' our library space. Not only is the space looking great, but we have several books that have been taken out of circulation that are now free to our LPS community.
