Principal's News


On Tuesday we held our Prep to Year 2 Cross Country. There is always great excitement and energy at this event. Congratulations to all students who participated and did their best. Thank you to families who were able to assist and to Mrs Melissa Watson for her coordination of the event.

St Elizabeth’s hosted its sixth Mathematical Minds Tournament this morning with teams from Year 6. The event included a number of nearby primary schools. Further information regarding today's tournament is in the Learning Enhancement section of our latest newsletter. Congratulations to Mrs Jane Goddard for organising this event.

This Sunday we celebrate Mothers’ Day. Words cannot express the sincere thanks we give for all mums and mother figures. This Friday morning we are acknowledging our mums with a breakfast from 7:30am followed by a whole school liturgy from 9.00am. All mothers and mother figures are welcome. Families attending this breakfast will need to RSVP before tomorrow so that catering can be finalised. The P & F is running a Mother's Day Stall this Friday, May 7th for the students to purchase small gifts for loved ones. Gifts will range in price from $1 to $5. This year, the committee would like students to think about reusing and recycling by bringing in a small bag/container to take their purchases home in. Gift bags will not be provided at the stall. Thank you for your support and understanding.

We keep in our prayers all children participating in the next part of their Sacramental journey. The children will be gathering with Fr Armstrong on Thursday afternoon in our Year 3 classrooms. May God watch over them at this time.

I am pleased to include in our latest newsletter our exciting fete event timetable for your information. With the fete event times now available, families may like to start considering their availablity to assist with the fete stalls on the day.

The next P & F Meeting is Tuesday, May 11th from 7pm in the Christi Centre.
