Grade 2 students need to purchase an Ipad for their 2017 school year.

All parents of current Grade 2 students will be taking part in our 1-1 (BYO!) iPad program in 2017.  In 2016 we have had 350 students in Grades 3 - 6 using iPads to support their learning and we strongly recommend that all students in Grades 3 - 6 in 2017 be supported with iPads.  Parents are encouraged to purchase a device as soon as possible in preparation for the 2017 academic school year. 

If you have mislaid your note, please ask the office for another one.



Be kind to our neighbours - park responsibly.

Please be mindful of parking responsibly around the school at those peak times that can be so frustrating for all.
Close to 9.00am and close to 3.30pm there are cars, cars and more cars all trying to park for a short amount of time.

Although it is frustrating to try and find a parking spot at those peak times please do remember that Lara Lake Primary School and the school community are a member of the wider Lara community and we aim to foster good relations with our neighbours.

Please do not park across driveways, in ‘no parking’ areas and be mindful of keeping the traffic flowing by not blocking access to narrow road areas. The Forest Road pull off area at Richard Drive is a popular parking spot however sections of that road are narrow and take some careful navigating. No one wants to scrape their car on the concrete barriers while trying to squeeze past.

Please remember to keep a mindful eye out as you drive, park, back and generally manoeuvre around the school as children are unpredictable and not always skilled with road crossing.

We ask all parents to set an excellent example and use the school crossing with their children.  If you have a young baby in the car, leave a little earlier and carry them to meet your child. I know the children love seeing a young baby. Don’t just call your child across the road to the car.  Or teach your children to walk to the crossing then walk to your car on the correct side of the road. Safety for all, courtesy to others and thoughtfulness for our neighbours.

We have a new school App.

Take a look at the hands in the shelter shed.

The students had a lovely time on Friday 7th October decorating the shelter shed wall with their hands. The shelter shed is a shaded passive play area for the students to enjoy.

At Lara Lake we have 3 large play equipment areas - one for the Juniors, one for the Middles and one for the Seniors to enjoy. The Spida play equipment, basketball court, downball court, sandpit and squoval also provide some great places to play. Have you seen the brand new Middles playground?
