Rebecca Clarke | Principal

Dear parents and caregivers,

This week was another great week and while the weather was a little warmer, the students have thoroughly enjoyed our beautiful outdoor spaces. Students are busy living our motto ‘Together we grow’ with lots of exciting learning taking place! The classrooms are certainly coming alive with learning!

Next week will be the beginning of the Lenten season. Tuesday is traditionally known as Shrove Tuesday and Mrs Curtis is organising pancakes for students to enjoy at recess. On Wednesday, as a whole school, we will participate in an Ash Wednesday Liturgy beginning at 9am. Families are welcome to join us.

I would like to congratulate our four Murdoch University teaching students and wish them all the best for the remainder of their final semester. We have thoroughly enjoyed having them on staff for the first week of term and I am sure they walk away with a lot of knowledge and new experiences. Thank you to staff who have dedicated themselves to this process.

Finally, this weekend the staff of St Elizabeth’s will participate in the Staff Commissioning Mass at St Anthony of Padua on Sunday morning at 9am. It would be lovely to have our families join us to celebrate the beginning of the school year.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!

God Bless

Rebecca Clarke
