The Lakes School News Issue 2 a caring, learning community
Our 50th Anniversary celebrations are fast approaching so we thought we would share some of our archive photos with you like these canoeists in the old swimming pool.
Our 50th anniversary celebrations begin on Thursday 8th October 2015, exactly 50 years since the school was officially opened in 1965.
The day will begin with a whole school assembly at 9am which will feature an amazing film created by ex student and award winning film maker Mike Cummings.
At 11.30am we will be welcoming invited guests to our official anniversary proceedings which start at 12 noon.
From 1pm, invited guests and visitors to the school will be able to take a guided tour with our students.
On Saturday 10th October 2015 we will be opening the school from 11am to 4pm to visitors from all over the world. Many ex students of The Lakes School are planning to visit and relive memories of their school years. There may even be an impromptu choir and band performance during the day.
We hope you will be able to join us on the afternoon of October 8th or anytime during October 10th.
Congratulations to Lisa Morton, Year 8, who secured first place, narrowly beating Year 11 students Lucelia Price and Hannah Monkman who finished joint second.
It was great to see our Year 9 rugby players outside in the rain and the mud recently, full of World Cup fever.
The players received expert coaching from their classmates Caleb MacDonald and James Willington who organised the session like seasoned professionals.
James and Caleb covered ball handling, rucking and moving through the phases.
The soggy session ended with a competitive but good natured game before everyone retired to the warmth of the changing rooms. Thanks to Caleb and James for running the training.
Thank you to everyone who visited us recently for our open day and open evening. It really was wonderful to welcome so many parents and children to look around our caring school. So many of you have shared such lovely comments with us for which we send huge thanks.
You told us that you were impressed by how warm and welcoming the school felt and many of you commented on the family feel that pervades the school. You also said that your children had a lovely time and you were impressed by the atmosphere in the school and the respectful and happy relationships you witnessed between students and staff.
Thank you for your lovely comments and we are so pleased that you were able to see our school as we see it everyday. Feel free to get in touch if you would like a tour or require more information; we will be only too pleased to help.
