Kiss & Collect Update

"Welcome back! As you are already aware, Kiss & Collect has never been intended to service a large amount of traffic. If you have absolutely no alternative but to use it to collect your child in the afternoon, we ask that: Parents of K - 2 children only, arrive as close as possible to 3.00 pm. ALL other parents should aim to arrive at 3.10 pm. PARENTS should stay in your cars at all times and students should be able to enter and exit the car on the left hand side. If you have booster seats please make sure they do not prevent your child from entering the car via the left side doors. Please also avoid having to access the boot. If everyone adheres to this request we should be able to keep everybody safe.​"

Dance @ LLV Update

2021 is going to be an exciting year for Dance @ LLV! This year we are growing our dance program to ensure we cater for all students who love to dance. We are running two programs - The LLV Dance Enhance Program (K-11) and the LLV Competitive Jewel Show Troupes through the external provider REDed.

Thank you.

On behalf of LLV, K-2 Hub would like to thank all of our LLV family for an amazing 2020. Enjoy.

It's a Wrap! One student's take on 2020.

Thanks so much to Lucinda in Stage 3 for her epic summary of 2020.

A wonderful community project.

We are so excited to be delivering the blankets that were made by so many members of our community as a way of reaching out to the vulnerable and lonely in our wider networks. We will be taking these beautiful blankets to the Scalabrini Nursing Home this weekend. Thank you Amanda for putting all the pieces together. Thanks from all of us for contributing.

The Culmination of our Stage 4 pop-up project.

Yesterday, the buzz in The Bitter Pea was palpable as our Stage 4 students shared their published pop-up books with their Stage 1 audience. It was an absolute delight to listen into the stories being read in multiple languages to our very receptive younger students. We are extremely proud of every one of our Stage 4 students. Their work was exemplary. Below you can find links to a sample which have been digitized. More will follow. Thank you to the amazing team of educators that has mentored these students through this fabulous project. Thanks to Natasha, Belinda, Sophia, Teresa, Jo and Jacki. Enjoy!

In Term 2, LLV students across Stage 2, 3 and 4 opted-in to participate in creating two-minute films for a NSW-wide Language Festival called ‘Linguafest’ run by MLTA (Modern Languages Teacher’s Association). In this project, language enthusiasts teamed together with film enthusiasts in a collaborative process to compose their films at school. We are so proud of the talent at LLV. A total of 14 films were completed by our students in the languages Chinese, Italian, Spanish, French, Konkani and Hindi!

There were strict guidelines for the competition, and out of the five submitted to the competition, TWO of LLV’s films have been crowned NSW winners in different categories!

Linguafest - Stage 4

Congratulations to the Stage 4 team behind the German film 'Lunchbox Notes' who have won MLTA's award for Stage 4 Finalist! Well done Rosemary C, Maya , Siena S, and Nina G!

Linguafest - Stage 2

A very big bravo to the Stage 2 team behind the French film 'The Yoga Class,' who have been crowned 'Best Comedy.' Fantastic job Aarna M, Florence H-R and Imogen S.

Linguafest - Stage 4

A shoutout to the fun animation film completed in Mandarin Chinese by Stage 4 students Janet C and Elizabeth G-H.

Linguafest - Stage 4

We would also like to recognise the very flash film editing skills behind the Stage 4 team, 'Vyom Gets Bullied.' Although unable to be submitted to 'Linguafest,' thank you Noah S, Jack G, Kai H, James G and Vyom A.

Linguafest - Stage 3

Finally, a great big shoutout to the efforts by Stage 3 students for 'The Cricket Game,' where all speakers spoke in Konkani (an Indian dialect). Fantastic efforts Aarav M, Rian Y and Lucca V.

Caesar The Day - The Museum

For the first half of this term, some of our Stage 2 and 3 students spent time delving into all things ‘Ancient Rome’. Throughout this time, they have built a replica of Rome, created mosaics, built a working aqueduct, a chariot and put together museum exhibits.

What's new in 2021!

2021 will be 'The Year of the Storyteller" at Lindfield Learning. We are already excited about developing our collective capacity as writers and storytellers. First Day for Stdents (download the below document for all the information)

A Big 'Shout Out' to our students!

During the last school holiday, Hannah and Katherine L volunteered with Kids Giving Back. The girls gave up their leisure time to undertake a range of activities to assist support vulnerable people including the homeless and those that are socially isolated. The team at Kids Giving Back were most impressed by the strong work ethic displayed by Hannah and Katherine who undertook such tasks as resource development, food preparation and letter writing. Kids Giving Back is a charity whose mission is to create the next Generation of Generosity. During these challenging times opportunities for children and young people to help others is not only empowering but has mental health benefits. Evaluation of the holiday program activities identified over 96% satisfaction with the remaining 4% of participants neutral. In addition we identified through pre and post survey results a positive shift in children’s willingness to undertake more activities to help others in their community.  If you would like to know more about the programs we offer or the pedagogical framework we use, please feel free to email us at programs@kidsgivingback.org.
