NEWSLETTER | TERM 2 | WEEK 2 | 5 MAY 2023
Rebecca Clarke | Principal
Dear parents and caregivers,
This week was certainly a busy one for students! Our Year Four to Six students were treated to a sneak preview of the Mater Dei College production ‘Back to the 80’s’ on Wednesday. The feedback from students was that the production was great, and they all loved the songs!! A number of our staff went on opening night and thoroughly enjoyed it as well, so I encourage you to book a ticket and treat yourself to a night out!
Today our Year One and Two students enjoyed a wonderful excursion to Cockman House and Wanneroo Museum learning all about our local history. Thank you to the Miss Baxter, Mrs Wall, Mrs Tie and Mrs Burgess for organising a great experience for our students. Also, to our parent volunteers, thank you for assisting on the day!
A reminder to everyone that at St Elizabeth’s we promote a healthy lifestyle through our ‘Crunch and Sip’ routine every morning. This includes bringing a small container of fruit or vegetables to ‘munch’ on and water only in our water bottles.
I have noticed that a number of girls are wearing large hair claws to school instead of the correct hair accessories. These are not appropriate for school, and I ask that you ensure that your child is wearing the correct hair accessories.
If you have not yet done so, I strongly encourage you to sign up for our Parent Workshop ‘Child Well-being and Resilience’ on Wednesday night. Our presenter, Ben Saulsman is great and a wealth of knowledge.
Finally, congratulations to Mrs Tanika Farmer and her husband Kurt who have welcomed a new addition, Maeve Estelle, to their family. We send them all our love and best wishes!
Have a lovely weekend!
