We sincerely appreciate your fundraising assistance. Our wish list is for an ampitheatre for the students to play on and use as an outdoor learning space.
The chocolate drive fundraiser has started. The chocolates sell for $50 a box. Thank you to the many families who have pre-purchased a box from the office.
If you would like to purchase a box, please send an envelope to school with your name plus child’s name and grade and the word 'chocolates' and we’ll send a box home.  Payments can be made by cash, Qkr or Eftpos.


Each year government schools are provided with four student-free days for professional development, school planning and ​administration, curriculum development, and student assessment and reporting purposes.

Friday May 25th will be a pupil free day.  The staff will be taking part in a curriculum day where they will be focusing on the DET Education State Initiatives' framework for improving student outcomes.  Using the latest research on student learning and global best-practice, the framework will help schools to focus their efforts on key areas that are known to have the greatest impact on school improvement. 
The curriculum day will focus on literacy improvements across the school.

The Lara Lake Primary School gymnasium is hired out most evenings to a local club however Saturday and Sunday are still available if there are any other clubs that might like to have access to a large hall with wooden basketball flooring, only suitable for runners / sneakers.  For all enquiries please contact the Business Manager, Kerry Hanrahan Ph. 52821261. All hirers need to have Public Liability insurance and sign a Lara Lake PS Hire Agreement.

The Student Attitudes to School Survey occurs each

The Student Attitudes to School Survey occurs each year for all students in Victorian Government schools. The survey is conducted in Term 2 with students from Years 4 to 12.
The survey captures students’ attitudes and experiences at school and is aligned with the Department’s Framework for Improving Student Outcomes (FISO). The survey measures are based on the best available evidence about what influences student outcomes.

The 2018 survey will be conducted online for all students in Years 4 to 12 and is administered from a secure online portal. It is anonymous.

Our school uses this data to inform how our students are engaging at school and put measures in place to make school a better experience for them. For example, this year’s School Captains will be working with the Principal to come up with responses to areas identified through this and last years’ results. More information to follow.
