Technology / STEM. I am pleased to witness Technology and STEM education moving full steam ahead at LIS. This week saw students in the high school using our new workshop for the first time. Thanks to Mr Collins who spearheaded this facility and the School to Mine teachers who put many hours into setting it up. We now look forward to the opening of our hospitality kitchen which we hope to have up and running by the end of this term.
Year 10 Leadership Camp. Over the last weekend in August, our year 10 students will participate in a leadership camp in Kavieng, which was postponed from earlier in the year due to Covid 19 restrictions. The camp will focus on looking toward the year 10 exams as well as a visit to OLSH International School in Kavieng where several of our year 10 students will be completing year 11 and 12.
Independence Day. This year the school will celebrate Independence Day on the last day of school for term 3. There will be some special activities (LIS Idol, dances, free dress and ice-cream to celebrate the day). Please note that this year it will be a school in-house celebration only – meaning that due to Covid 19 restrictions, we will be unable to invite parents and the wider community to join us. Photos and short videos will be included in the school’s newsletter and web page for parents and carers to view.
School Council. I am pleased to announce that Richard Toisiat has accepted his nomination as a parent rep on the School Council. We thank Richard for his commitment to the school.
