The Latham Lap-a-thon
Posted on 15 Sep 2017
The Latham Lap-a-thon is being held in term 4, Wednesday 18 October. Students will be running, walking or skipping laps of the school perimeter between recess and lunch. Teachers and parents will be supervising at all times. Sponsorship forms were sent home with every student on Thursday 14 September. We encourage children to collect sponsors from family, friends or neighbours that you may know. We do not want students to approach strangers or go door knocking. Sponsors may either donate a sum or nominate a per lap amount. (Please note some children did upward of 30 laps last time we ran this event)
To add to the spirit of the day we would love the children to dress up in some bright fun clothes. Be as creative as they like.

Celebrating 3 years of Fresh Tastes at Latham Primary School
Posted on 26 Jul 2017
On Monday this week we hosted a special event; a celebration of 3 years of involvement with the Fresh Tastes program. Latham was one of 8 schools who began the program in 2014, and Monday brought representatives from those schools, the Minister for Education and Early Childhood Development, Yvette Berry, and the Minister for Health Ms Meegan Fitzharris and special invited guests to our school to celebrate. A very special thanks to our wonderful Student Leadership Team who welcomed guests, accepted our certificate and beautiful vertical garden, and served food, all with charming manners and welcoming smiles. Thank you also to our staff; Evan our Fresh Tastes coordinator who prepared a static display and spoke to media, Peter who ran all the IT for the event, and to Hayden and Manuel who made sure the school was looking beautiful. Also we want to particularly acknowledge the outstanding contribution of Michelle our canteen manager who planned the menu and prepared all the ‘green food’ to be served – it was delicious! But no greater praise than that of the students who said (as they served) that the food was soooo good. Michelle has really taken the Fresh Tastes messages on board over the last 3 years, so that now our canteen menu gets a big tick from Nutrition Australia for its healthy menu. Well done.
