Principal's Message

Student Semester 1 reports

If all goes to plan, parents will receive their child’s Semester 1 reports this Thursday. A lot of work goes into preparing the reports and editing them ready to distribute so we hope that you find them helpful in understanding both the things your child has achieved and the things  they are still developing against the curriculum. As you read them, please remember that the grade ‘Sound’ means that your child is on track with the curriculum for their age.

If there are any families that require a second copy of their child’s report, please contact the office and we would be only too happy to provide you with an additional copy.

Parents will often say to us that the reports themselves do not always provide the full picture with regard to how their child is progressing at school. The key to getting the ‘full picture’ is to book and attend a parent-teacher interview. At the time of writing, interviews have been booked for 281 out of 361 students which represents 78% of the student population. From our perspective, this is fantastic and a substantial increase on recent trends. We appreciate the opportunity to touch base with you in person to outline your child’s progress.

If you have not yet booked a parent-teacher interview, it is not too late. The online booking system will remain open until this Friday.

Rebranding Launch

Please forgive me if you are one of those families that read the newsletter regularly each week and are ‘all over’ this, but I would like to take one more opportunity to draw everyone’s attention to the upcoming school rebranding launch on Thursday 24th June in the hall. There has been an open invitation to attend in the newsletter over the past 3 weeks, however all families should receive a formal invitation today containing a few more details.

The event is planned with parents and carers in mind. If you are unable to arrange alternate care for your children, there will be supervision provided by school staff in the library for school-aged children. Students can be signed in from 5:30pm onwards and signed out at the conclusion of the launch around 7:00pm. If you have younger children, you are welcome to bring them as we would not want you to miss the launch, however out of respect for other families attending, please come armed with a few strategies up your sleeve should they become a little unsettled during the presentations.

The event will include short presentations from myself and the graphic designer whom we have worked with as well as performances by the school band and senior choir, and one or two other small surprises. It should be a really entertaining and enjoyable evening. I hope that you are able to join us.

Have a great week.

David Holland

P.S.  Well done to the Blues last week.

Lambton's 150 Year's Birthday Party - help needed

A week of celebrations has been planned to celebrate 150 years of Lambton.

But we can't do this and make it the best ever without a good team of volunteers.

Memorable Olympic Moments – Alysson Annan

Age: 47

Place of Birth: NSW

Olympic History: Barcelona 1992; Atlanta 1996, Sydney 2000

Events: Women’s Hockey

Medals: 2 x gold

Alyson Annan, a key member of the Australian gold medal hockey teams at the Atlanta (1996) and Sydney (2000) Olympic Games, was dubbed by fellow players as “the sharpest shooter in international women’s hockey”. In 1998 and 2000 she was honoured by the international hockey federation FIH with its International Player of the Year award, and players voted her in 1999 as the best women hockey player in the world. Born in Wentworthville, NSW, she earned 228 international caps and scored 166 goals while playing for the national hockey team.

Annan made her international debut against Korea in June 1991 at the age of 17 and built a huge reputation as an attacking mid-fielder during the Hockeyroos’ dynasty of the 1990s, participating in the Olympics of 1992, 1996 and 2000. She later confessed that she did not feel comfortable in the Australian side until 1996, when the team won gold. The visionary coach Ric Charlesworth recognised her genius, although their relationship was reported at times to be testy.

Annan also won gold medals in the 1994 and 1998 World Cups, the 1998 Commonwealth Games and the Champions Trophy competition of 1993, 1995, 1997 and 1999. It was at those 1998 Commonwealth Games that she became Australia’s highest-ever goal scorer, with 110 goals. At national level her awards included Australian Player of the Year (1990 and 1992) and Player of the Year and Australian Sportswoman of the Year (1996). She retired from international hockey after the 2000 Olympics, and later coached in the Netherlands.
