ELC - Incursion tomorrow

Dear Families,

We will join the primary school for Alpha's Aladdin Show tomorrow.  It is a spectacular musical rock concert for children and grownups of all ages. The show brings together the classic tale with a hilarious modern take, as well as integrating magical and important messages.  It is a fun and engaging show that we attend each year. Please note that the musical can be noisy and the hall will be dimly lit.  If you think this will be a worry for your child please talk to them and let our staff know

Many thanks, the ELC team.

ELC - Wellbeing events

Dear Preschool families,

At St Anthony’s, September and October have a big emphasis on mental health and wellbeing. We do this through a few focussed days including R U OK? Day and Bubble Day.

Thursday 8th September – R U OK? Day - THIS WEEK

St Anthony’s has been celebrating R U OK? Day for several years now. We encourage children to come to school wearing splashes of yellow. This could be socks, a tie/bowtie, a t-shirt, a hat, a ribbon or scrunchie etc. Please note, it is not a uniform free day. 

The focus of the day is to connect with those around you. To take time to stop and check in with your friends, classmates and colleagues and really ask if they are okay. 

One of our Year 6 students has made a video to help promote the day, it can be viewed here: R U OK? Day Promo Video  

The R U OK? website is also a great resource for tools on how to engage in this conversation with those around you. https://www.ruok.org.au 

Thursday 20th October – Bubble Day- Term 4 

Bubble Day at St Anthony’s recognises World Mental Health Day. It gives us an opportunity to pause, exhale, blow some bubbles and have some bubble fun throughout the day. More information about Bubble Day will be shared closer to the day. 

These days aims to highlight the 5 key elements of wellbeing:  

CONNECT  l  BE ACTIVE  l  TAKE NOTICE  l  KEEP LEARNING  l  GIVE  

Warm regards, The Preschool team and Beth Lehmensich (Wellbeing Teacher)
