Lights

Lights
We are the LPS Energy Detectives. At lunch time we go round the classrooms to check who turns their lights off. We want all the classroom lights to be off at play breaks to save money and energy. Our job is to keep a tally of who has left lights on or off. At each assembly we will be handing out the shield and a certificate to the winning classroom.the first winner is team 3

this is the shield and certificate.

LPS Community Group


At Lincoln Primary School, each Friday a community action group comes together and brainstorms ways that they can help the community and help Lincoln to be a better place. They have already come up with some awesome ideas, including making some compliment cards to give to people in the community and going to the kindergarten.

The compliment cards had lovely messages like ‘Your smile is contagious’, ‘you smell like roses’ and ‘you are a smart cookie’ they had to give them to someone they didn't know to make them feel special.

A couple of weeks ago the community action group visited the kindergarten to read them stories. The kids really loved it, it was a whole lot of fun. The community group is an excellent idea and hopefully it will help to make Lincoln a better place.

We asked some of the community action group about their favourite part of the kindergarten visit. Owen said he loves helping the school and making creations and at the kindergarten. He really enjoyed being around and interacting with all the younger kids. Claudia said her favourite part of the visit was seeing all the little kids because it brought memories back from when she went to kindergarten. The community action teachers think it was a huge success and everyone loved it.

Lincoln Primary’s new office!





After weeks of work we are proud to inform you that Lincoln primary school’s office has been completed. Our awesome new office is now accessible.

At the start of the year the office was temporarily moved to the entrance of the hall and there is now a modern new design. Now you can find it under the year 7-8 building near the resource room where the old information centre was.

The office includes a brand new modern feel including lots of comfy seating, a brand new sick bay and a desk in the main room. There is a small meeting room for visitors coming to the school and an office for Mrs Butcher.

Thank you to Corbel Construction who built our amazing new office we really appreciate it.

Friday Hot Chocolates


Every Friday at Lincoln Primary the parents of jump jam students have been making delicious hot chocolates for the school. This is a fundraiser for all of the school’s jump jam teams ranging from years 3-8 to save up enough money to go to Auckland and perform in the national competition.We would like to thank Mrs Schmidli, parents and kids for doing this each Friday. There have been lots of positive comments about the hot chocolates.

Year 7 Bush Education


On 25th of May, Year 7 went to Craigieburn Forest for their Bush Education Trip “How to survive and thrive in the Bush.”  This trip encouraged Year 7 go out of their comfort zone and it required high perseverance to finish the track. They had a few tasks to complete, including; Leading the group to each junction and climbing to the top of Helicopter Hill.

This was a tiring journey and all year 7’s did not falter at doing this opportunity to climb the hill. There were a lot of stunning sights to see at the peak of the mountains like the other mountains and the trees towering over us. This was an amazing once of a lifetime opportunity, it was totally worth coming along. Thank you to all the teachers and parents for volunteering and we hope everyone enjoyed this opportunity.

Fidget Spinners

Fidget Spinners
By Fran
Fidget Spinners are toys that are designed to play with and help you concentrate.They are held between two fingers and spin while you hold them. Fidget Spinners are trending around NZ and children are bringing them to school. Some schools have banned Fidget Spinners. At Lincoln primary school you are allowed Fidget Spinners if you have a note from your parents saying it will help you concentrate.

The cheapest Fidget Spinners cost around $3 and most are made of metal. They are priced depending on how well they spin, the sound they make, the shape and the colour. Some can spin for up to 5 mins. Fidget Spinners make good presents and are fun to play with. Some teachers argue that they are a distraction.  

Children love fidget Spinners a lot more than teachers do.
