Week 5 Update


Week 5 of each term, at our school, is “Wellbeing Week”. Research shows that care for ourselves, whether it be physical, emotional or spiritual is essential in being the “best version” of ourselves. The promotion of wellbeing during this week is seen in little or no homework (we should read every night) so that families can reconnect. The start of the year is draining emotionally and with the warmer weather it can take a physical toll too. Please use this week to check in with your child and let your class teacher know if there are any areas that require addressing.

I can confirm we will be holding a whole school disco on Friday, March 19th. I look forward to gathering as a school community. Further information to follow.

I would like to acknowledge the 2021 Fete Committee. I sincerely thank them for stepping forward to assist with the fete and ask all families in our school to support them, whether it be through sponsorship, stall convening, donation of products or just physically helping on the day. The committee have met with the P & F president and myself. They will now reach out, within the school and wider community, for groups interested in sponsorship. If you or your business would like more information, please contact the fete convening team via email: stelizabethsfete21@gmail.com

Last Wednesday morning our Year 5 and Year 6 students represented our school at the Parish’s Ash Wednesday Mass. We thank Fr Adrian Sharp for leading this Eucharist celebration. The season of Lent is one of prayer, penance and almsgivings. We will encourage our students to understand this better via school assemblies and class lessons.

Senior Constable Luke and Senior Constable Nev from the Annerley Station are our schools' new Adopt-A-Cops. Luke spoke to the students last Monday about traffic safety, including crossing the road with an adult and getting quickly into their cars at the pick-up zone. We look forward to Luke and Nev speaking to the school and classes as the year progresses.   

Finally, we will begin our Prep 2022 interviews in two weeks' time for existing families. Families will be contacted by the office and provided with a time to meet either Mrs Bronwyn Stutz, Mrs Lizabeth Iles or myself. Please call the office ASAP if you still have outstanding paperwork.

Have a great week,

Peter Griffin
