Get Ready for Prep! Here are some of our FAQs
What do we need to buy?
All you need to purchase is your child's uniforms and their lunchbox. All other resources are supplied by the College which are covered in the Resource Levy. Please refer to the Prep Handbook for uniform requirements including which style of shoe is permitted. Please ensure a spare uniform is supplied in your child's schoolbag in a ziplocked bag. All items must be labelled. You can purchase new uniforms at School Locker and second hand uniforms at the uniform shop located in Carpark 1. Hours for the second hand uniform shop can be found HERE. Our second hand uniform shop is run by parent volunteers and they also have their own Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/TLCCASHUS.
How can I be more involved in the College?
We love it when parents and carers want to be more involved in the College and we encourage you to reach out to The Lakes College Community Association (TLCCA) which is run by our parents and friends.
How can I contact other parents in my class?
Every class / year level at the College has a dedicated parent representative to liaise with other parents. More details will be available at the start of school year. The College is not allowed to release other parents details to you.
