VCE Theatre Studies students from Lilydale High School present ‘The River, The Dirt and Us’ by Shaun Charles.  This production fulfils outcomes for both Unit 1 and Unit 3 students.

School Photo – Catch-Up Day

School Photo – Catch-Up Day

There will be a catch up photo day on Tuesday 28 February for students that are absent or unavailable on Friday 17 February (School Photo Day).

Once school photos have been uploaded to the Compass Portal, parents are able to view the photos and choose which photos they would like to order online through Compass (which is the preferred method).  Online Compass accepts VISA and MasterCard.

Alternatively parents who prefer to pay by cheque can order manually and post their order directly to the school photo company.

Please note that sibling photos require some post-processing work and are thus uploaded approximately 4 to 6 weeks after the day on which they are taken.

The school photo company also provides the schools Student ID cards. Your child’s initial card is provided after their school photo is taken and is free of charge. Replacement cards are ordered through the Parent or Student Portal.

Scheduled Maintenance

The school network, including the website and compass portal, will be down for maintenance in the week starting Monday 16th January 2017. During this week, the website and portal will be unavailable for periods of time lasting approximately one to two hours.  We apologise for any inconvenience.
