Rebecca Clarke | Principal

Dear parent and caregivers,


It was lovely to be back at school this week, even if it was only a short week for me. With Covid cases continuing to surge, I do remind you to look after yourselves and take care. A big thank you to our staff for taking on the extra bits and pieces!


Well done to our Year 3 and 5 students for completing NAPLAN over the last two weeks. Thank you to those staff involved in the organisation and administration of NAPLAN. Results from NAPLAN will be available in Term 4 and will assist us with our teaching and learning focus going forward.


I would like to welcome Mr Nathan Bright onto staff as he begins his new role as Maintenance/Groundsperson this term. Additionally, we are very fortunate to have our CEWA Psychologist, Ms Chelsea Thompson, working at the school every fortnight assisting staff with various teaching and learning strategies and observing students who may need extra support. Please make them both welcome.


Thank you to Mrs Justine O’Malley for making this week enjoyable! During Health, Mrs O’Malley organised a visit from the Therapy Dog, Zayda, highlighting the needs and wants of pets. The students loved the visit! Additionally, Mrs O’Malley also run a very successful Year 5 Girl’s Puberty Workshop and High Tea. A big thank you for making these events a highlight of the week!


Please put Wednesday, June 29 in your calendars as we will be holding an 'Open Classroom' afternoon to showcase the wonderful work our students are doing across all year levels. This is a great opportunity to immerse yourself into your child's classroom. Classrooms will be open from 3pm until 4pm.


Wishing everyone a lovely weekend!


God bless


Rebecca Clarke

Principal

Containers for Change

This year St. Elizabeth’s will be raising money through the Containers for Change initiative. Last year we raised over $100 that went to charity. This year we have moved away from collecting the recycling containers at school and have created an account directly with Containers for Change. If you have extra containers that you would like to donate, please use the barcode or QR code below when depositing your containers, this will help us to raise even more money for charity!

Thank you

Mr Rebeiro!
