Last Wednesday, Grades 3 - 6 went to the Riverside Pool for their swimming carnival. The winning house will be announced on Monday at Assembly. Well done to everyone that competed!
On Wednesday 1st of March we had our swimming carnival. There were four different types of races. They were the 66 metre freestyle, 33 metre freestyle, 33 metre backstroke and 33 metre breastroke. At the end of the day there was a relay that some people competed in. Most people looked like they enjoyed it. During our break the house captains came to the front and made up a house cheer for everyone in their house.

Tas Fire Service Visit
A firefighter from the Tasmania Fire Service (TFS) is visiting our school in week 6 (6th – 10th March) to present a Home Fire Safety Program to our Prep to Grade 6 students.
Kindergarten students, whilst not receiving a structured lesson, can expect a visit from the firefighter who will leave some free fun activites for the students to complete.
The age appropriate program is designed to raise fire awareness in children and includes fun in class activities, videos, activity books, website www.tfseducation.com.au and giveaways.
Parents and other family members are also encouraged to participate by reading the information and assisting your child with the after school activities.
The TFS aims to deliver appropriate fire safety education to every primary school child in Tasmania and is part of the TFS’s ongoing commitment to create a fire safe Tasmania.
Key Fire Safety Messages include,
More information www.tfseducation.com.au
TFS receives regular requests from preschools and child care centres asking for firefighters to visit and teach children about home fire safety.
TFS does not deliver structured fire safety programs to children below primary school age. This decision was made based on research carried out by the Mental Health Services of the Royal Children’s Hospital and the Metropolitan Fire Brigade in Melbourne. This research indicated that:
- Children under the age of five had low retention of the information they had learned; and
- In some children, the information had actually stimulated their curiosity about fire and they had begun to play with fire.
TFS believes that parents and caregivers are the best people to make sure that very young children are safe from fire. To help with this, TFS has a fire safety website for parents, carers, teachers and students
TFS has also developed resources for young children that introduce them to the friendly firefighter characters that they will meet when they receive the School Fire Education Program including a colouring book and stickers with home fire safety messages for the whole family.
Free giveaways for your preschool or child care centre are available here.

Setup for Success (Early Learning) has started for all current families with young children, and new families, on Wednesday mornings from 9 - 10:30am. All Welcome!
Facebook groups are often created by each class as a way for parents to keep in touch. Some of the groups have used the school name or logos / branding of the school.
Public Facebook groups, or even private ones, cannot use the school name in the title or any logos or image that identify the school. It makes us, and you, legally responsible.
What you need to do if you have created a group is change the name if it includes Larmenier, remove any identifying pictures and make the group PRIVATE. You can name the groups something like ‘LCS Prep 2023’
If there are any groups out there that are no longer being used and you are the creator, or know the creator, can they please be closed down.
Our main communication on Facebook will come straight from the school. The other popular group LC Farm School Parents will be closed down soon. One of the main purposes of this group is buying & selling secondhand uniforms. A buy & sell page has been created on Facebook, LCS Buy, Swap & Sell. This is strictly for buying and selling second hand uniforms.
