LNPS Donation Box

Hello Students and Parents/Caregivers of LNPS. I am a former Lockleys North student seeking your help.

For a subject called the Community Project, I am required to design a project based on a need in the community. As I enjoy reading, my focus is on collecting reading supplies, such as fiction books and educational resources to help the less fortunate and disadvantaged groups in our community (locally and overseas) to improve education.


I am collecting for South Pacific School Aid and setting up collection points at LNPS in the Library and in the front office.

I will be collecting from this Friday, which is the 19th of August, to the 2nd of September

Extra details on donations are in the attached file below.


I hope the amazing LNPS school community can support this project and help me achieve my goal.


Thank you

Mia Karlis, Year 9 student at Immanuel College

Premier's Reading Challenge

The Premier's Reading Challenge concludes on the 9th of September. So get your forms in fast! There are extras in the library if your child needs another. So, finish recording the PRC books you are reading and happy reading to everyone!!



Reception -  Can borrow 4 books

Years 1, 2, 3, 4 - Can borrow 8 books

Years 5 and 6 - Can borrow 10 books

Parents – Can borrow up to 10 books


Books can be kept for a maximum of 2 weeks. All that is required for borrowing is a library bag (for Reception, Year 1/2) and no overdue books. Students are encouraged to manage their own library bags and to borrow regularly.


Students can either place books they want to return in their classroom library box or directly into the green returns box in the Tirkandi library. 

Overdue, Lost or Damaged Books

The school library policy for overdue, lost or damaged books is as followed. A library book that has been overdue / lost for 2 weeks or more or returned damaged, there will be a fee of $15. However, if the book is found or returned you will be reimbursed the full amount. Students will be unable to borrow until the book(s) are returned or the payment is made. The money goes towards replacing that book.
