Good Afternoon Families and Friends,
Firstly we would like to congratulate all students who took part in the 3-6 Athletics Carnival last week. It was a lovely day and wonderful to see so many parents cheering the houses on. Well done to Alethea who were overall champions for 2021. Our ELC students will have their carnival in Term 4, maybe this will be the time for Carana or Timae to turn the tables?
On Sunday we saw some of our Year 6 & 7 set off for the Kimberley. We wish them the very best for their tour as they explore the beautiful Kimberley region. Students and teachers will be returning on the 20 September.
A look at the week ahead
We have 3 camps happening this week. On Tuesday 14 – 16 September the Year 5 students head off to their camp at Point Peron. This Friday 17 September, the Year 3 students will have their camp. The Year 3 students will be heading to the city for an excursion at SciTech during the day, followed by a sleepover at the school in the evening. Also on Friday, Year 2 have their camp day and sleepover at the school. The Year 2 students have a range of activities taking place at school, including games, movies and spotlight!
Our school camps are a wonderful opportunity for the children to spend time together, and experience a diverse range of activities. We know that they will have a wonderful time and are excited to hear about their adventures. Parent of children attending camps, please ensure you have read their class blogs and are aware of the camp agenda, collection times and things that need to be packed.
Fun Days Ahead
On Thursday Pre Primary students will be having a Marvellous Mixtures Morning, 9:15am – 10:00am. This is sure to be a messy, engaging and fun learning experience! We can’t wait to see the photos and hear about what the students created during the morning mix.
This Friday at the ELC we have worship for out Kindy and Pre Primary. Parents of students in these year group please come and join us for a fun, fantastic and a little flamboyant bible based worship!
As next Monday 20 September is a fundraising day. It is a non uniform day for students. Please bring in a gold coin donation to support our chosen causes for this term.

On Tuesday 21 September the canteen are providing the opportunity to order a special end of term Meal Deal. Please go online to order a meal for your child.
Car Parking / Drop Off and Pick Up
Several staff and parents have raised their concerns that the bottom car park at Doveridge Drive is being used for Kiss and Drive. Please be aware that the car park is not to be used for Kiss and Drive. We have allocated a specific area in the Primary school for Kiss and Drive. This area is supervised and its location chosen to support the safe movement of children whilst on the school premises. Please feel free to park at the bottom car park but we kindly request that it is not used for Kiss and Drive purposes.
As we finish this term off well, with so many opportunities for our students, we want to thank our amazing staff for consistently going above and beyond for the students in their care. We would also like to thank our families for supporting our staff and these events. We have many parents that offer their time, expertise and support to the school, which enables us to offer more for our students. We are blessed to have such a wonderful community.

ELC FUNDRAISER – NON-UNIFORM DAY MONDAY 20 SEPTEMBER – FRUITFUL HARVEST
(Please bring along your donations)
What a blessing your school is to so many hurting children here in Zimbabwe.
Our schools are starting up on the 6 of September. As you can imagine children all over the world have been hearing about COVID, and have had to change their lives around because of it.
After over a year of lockdown, getting to go to school only having to stop again. The children we reach out to have no way of getting their education through Zoom or any other online studies. This means that they just get further and further behind in ther studies.
We are so thankful that your school is wanting to do a fundraiser for these children.
This year we now have 3 teachers who will be going into the schools every week and doing worship and telling Bible stories through the Time With Jesus program. And because of your help we will also be able to give eggs to them as well!!!
Thank you all for doing your part to help other children in a country so far away!!! May God bless you, your school and your families for they way you always think of others.
