LNPS community spirit strikes again

We have a lovely message below from Mia Karlis to thank the LNPS community for all our amazing donations. 


Dear LNPS Students and Staff,

Thank you for your generous and kind donation of all books and for helping me succeed in my community project.


I was able to fill a car boot and trailer full of books!  Thankfully my dad helped deliver our load to the volunteers at  South Pacific School Aid. With your help, I collected various sets of reading packs,  equipment and fiction books to send to South Pacific School Aid. 


This charity organisation leads the operation of collecting, repairing, sorting and organising books to be donated to less fortunate schools and communities around the world. 


Your donations will provide the necessary resources and tools for many children to succeed in literacy and promote recycling and sustainability in giving these books a second life.


Thank you! 

Mia Karlis

Overdue, Lost or Damaged Books

The school library policy for overdue, lost or damaged books is as followed. For 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.
