    Thank you to all families who came along to support this year's International Day celebrations held on Saturday, 07 October 2017. The fun, festivities and tasty food ensured that everyone had a great family day out. People were happy, festive and proud to share a sense of their culture and identity. Our mission statement highlights that we are a diverse group of learners. We are extremely grateful to the LIS community who supported an international booth or volunteered their time. A special thank you to our PTA members who helped to plan and coordinate such a successful school community event.
