Welcome Back!

Welcome to 2023

I extend a warm welcome to our entire LNPS community as we begin the 2023 school year. To date, it has been an extremely positive and smooth start to the year. The limited impact of COVID unlike in previous years has been reflected in the students and they have all transitioned really well. 


As Principal, I believe we need to have a shared vision for our school, with a partnership between our staff, students and families, so that the whole school community can work together to bring this vision to life at LNPS.


Key elements of my vision for our school include making sure that:

  • all of our students feel they are valued members of a caring school community
  • all students have the opportunity and support to grow both academically  and socially
  • there is a strong focus on student well-being as a foundation for learning, given that growth and well-being are closely connected
  • a strong culture of improvement & growth in all areas of the school
  • staff feel valued and are supported in their roles
  • families are genuinely engaged in their child’s learning and connected to the school

As a school, our core focus needs to be on the learning and well-being of our students. They are our greatest lever – and therefore our number one priority – needs to be the quality of teaching and learning that every student receives, in every classroom, every day.


I am excited about the opportunities we have to further develop LNPS as an outstanding school and a key part of this will be working with the whole school community to shape this future together.


We are also very pleased to welcome 68 new children and their families to our school. Students have joined us from around the world, throughout Australia, from within our state and from across Adelaide. We feel confident that you too will soon feel like a part of the wonderful school community at LNPS. 


​We currently have 440 students enrolled across 17 classes. We have again invested in additional salaries to support student learning from our school budget. These are in the area of extension programs, intervention programs and support programs.


We are really looking forward to connecting with families on Monday 13th February from 3:30 to 5:45 at our Building Connections - Community Engagement event. 


Families will have the opportunity to meet with teachers and build knowledge about what children should know or be able to do regarding our school values and learner qualities, supporting their learning at home and information regarding Learning Conferences.

We invite students and families to attend the following specific sessions. 


Sessions will be held in your child/rens classroom.

  • Rowell (Reception) - 3.30pm - 4pm
  • Mellor (Years 1/2) - 4.05pm - 4.35pm
  • Torrens (Years 3/4) - 4:40pm- 5:10pm
  • Fisher - (Years 4-6) - 5:15pm- 5:45pm

We kindly request that families register through Eventbrite


If you have any questions please contact the Front Office on 8443 5544. 


Throughout the year there will be times that you are seeking information regarding your child/rens learning. Your child's classroom teacher is the first point of contact for you and please feel free to contact them if you have any concerns or questions you wish to raise. 


We are very much looking forward to the 2023 school year and working in partnership with families, students and staff to collectively shape the next stage of our school’s development.


We hope to see our community members this Friday at our Whole School Assembly at 2:15 in the GYm.
