Cadbury Chocolate Drive (128 KB)We are holding a Cadbury chocolate fundraiser. This is our major fundraiser for the year and we hope that you can sell some chocolates for us.
All fundraising money is being collected to go towards our future project, to build the students an ampitheatre and upgrade the grounds. KidsLinks' previous project was to raise funds for the middle playground which was completed late in 2016 and the students are currently enjoying using the extensive playground which also caters for students with limited mobility. (Thank you KidsLinks).
If you would like to sell a box or two of Cadbury chocolate frogs to help us out, please complete the note which was sent home via the eldest child in each family. Each full box sold will be eligible to go into the draw to win a 4.5kg Toblerone, currently on display in the office. Return all money in a secure, named envelope to ensure you get your entry into the prize draw.
Only parents/carers can request a box of chocolates be sent home. Please use the note provided, a copy of which is attached.

The Department of Education wish to create and maintain a child safe organisation therefore all Victorian schools must comply with Ministerial Order No. 870, a joint protocol of the Department of Human Services Child Protection, Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, Licensed Children’s Services and Victorian Schools. DET wish to embed a culture of child safety. Lara Lake Primary School has completed extensive work in 2016 to ensue their continued focus on student development, which incorporates child safety.
Every Child has the right to a full and productive life. It is up to all of us to ensure our children grow up in environments that build confidence, friendship, security and happiness, irrespective of a person’s family circumstances or background.
The joint protocol, involving the Department of Human Services Child Protection, Department of Education and Early Childhood Development, licensed children’s services and Victorian schools, ensures
we have a unified and consistent approach that defines roles and responsibilities to protect the safety and wellbeing of all Victorian children and young people.
Keeping children safe from harm requires a vigilant and informed community that is confident in making judgements and is assertive in taking actions. It is essential that all practitioners working with children and young people are able to understand the role each plays in protecting children.
It is the role of Victorian schools under the Education and Training Reform Regulations 2007 to provide school education in Victoria that adheres to the minimum standards detailed in the
regulations. Schools have an important role to play in supporting children and their families and in protecting students who may be at risk of harm due to abuse or neglect. Education staff in close daily contact with students are well placed to observe when a child or young person appears to be at risk of harm.
Under the CYFA, primary and secondary school teachers and principals are prescribed as mandatory reporters. They must make a report to Child Protection if they believe, on reasonable grounds, that a child or a young person is in need of protection.
The role of schools concerning the general welfare of students is outlined in a range of school policies and procedures. This protocol is intended to complement other policies and procedures that already exist in government and non-government schools.
