How do I Contact a Teacher (by Phone or Email)?

PHONE THE SCHOOL

Phone the school and ask to speak to the teacher (9471 0300 from 8:15 am to 4:00 pm). If they are not available, then you may leave a message for them to contact you (clearly pronounce your name, phone number and leave a message).

EMAIL THE TEACHER

Ask your child if they know the email address of the teacher. Even if they do not know, they can log onto the high school web site via a home computer and find it out for you.

You can construct the teacher's email address if you know their name. The email addresses of school staff is of the form
<first name>.<surname>@lawley.wa.edu.au
so the email for the teacher John Smith would be John.Smith@lawley.wa.edu.au

Also note that emails to enquiries@lawley.wa.edu.au are reviewed by human eyes and re-directed as needed.

Where do I find the standard school forms?

Right here! They are in PDF format.

If there are more forms you want added, please email John Pryor: john@mlshspc.org.au

What parking is available at the school?

Within the school there are only 6 visitor bays (at the Woodsome Street entrance). The other bays are for staff and if you park in them you may be blocked in. So, if the visitor bays are full, please use the street parking and enjoy the few extra metres walk :<)

Almost without saying, it is good practice to avoid visiting the school at the peak drop-off (8:00 to 8:45) and pick-up times (2:45 to 3:30).

Where is there information of Allowances and Concessions?

This "Back to School Information Guide" produced by Ljiljanna Ravlich (MLC for East Metropolitan Region) has useful information for parents on Contributions, Charges, Allowances, Discounts, Concessions, Text Books and Comuputers.

Is there organised Debating (or not)? How can Parents help?

STUDENT PARTICIPATION:

Debating is an extra curricular activity for years 8 to 12 students. Teams of 3-5 students take part in the inter-schools' debating competition run by the West Australian Debating League (W.A.D.L. - www.wadl.org.au/).

Teams are broken up into three year groups - year 8, years 9/10 Juniors and years 11/12 Seniors. The school pays the bulk of the registration fees but students have to contribute $10. Depending on team numbers, each member takes part in 3-5 debates but students should be present at all 5 debates if possible. The debates are usually held at Perth College on Tuesday or Wednesday nights from 6.00 p.m. to 9.00 p.m. Jobs such as time keeper and chairperson are carried out by students. If the team is successful in winning the 5 debates or is the highest points winner in their division, then they are divisional champions and are required for up to another 5 debates in a knock-out competition which leads to the prize of State Finalist Champions for their year group. The foyer of the Administration building reflects the scope of previous year successes in the competition and many of the students find their way into leadership positions in the school.

There are also other competitions such as:

PARENT PARTICIPATION

Teams need coaches and year groups need co-ordinators. Parents may fill those roles or assist teachers in providing feedback and coaching. To get more information contact Middle School teacher Warren Daniel.

What Inter-School Sports are available? How can Parents help?

STUDENT PARTICIPATION

A wide range of sporting activities are offered each year but the choice depends on the availability of coaches. The following sports have been offered:

WHOLE SCHOOL

SENIOR SCHOOL

MIDDLE SCHOOL

PARENT PARTICIPATION

The number of teams and types of sports offered is directly related to the availability of coaches (who are mainly teachers). Parents are very welcome to offer their services as coaches, assistant coaches or team managers. Bus drivers are also keenly sought as transport is one of the biggest problems for after school sport.
