2018 Resource Allocation Model funding

In October 2017, all NSW public schools will receive a 2018 Planned School Budget Allocation Report. The report will assist with the management of the total budget delivered to schools through the Resource Allocation Model (RAM). The Resource Allocation Model (RAM) methodology distributes funding based on the individual needs of students and schools. This gives schools greater flexibility to make local decisions. Learn more about the 2018 funding by visiting the department's website or watch a short animation about managing the total school... Read more

The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) started in NSW in July 2016, rolling out across half of the state. The rollout for the rest of NSW started on 1 July 2017 and the NDIS will be fully rolled out by mid 2018.

In the first week of the June/July school holidays LEPS, for the first time, joined 41 other schools from across Northern NSW and QLD in the annual interschool ski races. Students from a range of years participated in at least one of three different skiing events: Alpine, which is racing down hill around the flags, Skier X (Cross) which is racing downhill over obstacles and moguls, which are the bumps, and a final jump. Everything went well except for one broken arm and thumb.... Read more

Farewell Rosemary Chowne

This week, the highly respected and much loved Mrs Chowne bid farewell to LEPS and a stellar career in public education. Her career started at LEPS in 1995, with her specialisation being the early child-hood years. Over the decades, Mrs Chowne provided hundreds of our K-2 students with the best possible start to formal schooling. Her warm and nurturing style are emblematic of the qualities needed to engage and guide inquisitive young minds. Mrs Chowne's other passion, environmental education, has inspired LEPS in the development of an... Read more

Japanese Student Visit

Intercultural Understanding- Kugenuma HS Students Return!

Most Australians would think of Japan being far from synonymous with surfing. Kugenuma, however, is a Japanese city on the Shonan Coast of Honshu and just one of many popular surf breaks in the country. Its black sand and absence of bluebottles and shark alerts set it apart from Sydney beaches. A fifth consecutive visit from Kugenama High School students last week increased our intercultural understanding of our Asian neighbour a little further. The two day study tour is giving 60 Japanese students and 6 LEPS classes the opportunity to engage... Read more

Field of Mars

Acoustic Ecology Excursion—Field of Mars

On Monday 29 May, thirty Year 5 and 6 students were selected to go on an acoustic ecology excursion at the Field of Mars. We created music with branches, sticks, nuts and dirt. We all had a lot of fun making music with natural resources. We were given iPads and microphones to record specific sounds found in our natural environment. We all got to work and soon everyone was recording sounds and even making them, such as: swishing a long stick in water, scraping trees, and swishing branches. While we were having lunch, we recorded more sounds... Read more
