Beeliar News: Welcome to Term 4

Welcome back

Welcome back to all of our Beeliar families for Term 4. We have many exciting events this term culminating with all Pre-Primary to Year 3 students joining Beeliar Primary School students for a Christmas Concert based on the ballet, “The Nutcracker“. In addition to this Year 3 students will be joining their friends from Willagee and Bull Creek sites to attend the Big Day Out next month.

Pre Primary students will join with our Bull Creek friends to visit AQWA to consolidate our integrated curriculum unit “Living and Non-Living” on November 2nd.

TA3 & TA4 will go to John Curtin College of the Arts to watch a live performance of Cinderella on December 2nd. More information will follow.

Free Dress Day

Please support Beeliar Primary School with their last fundraising drive for Telethon and their little star, Lucy with a free dress day on Friday 15 October. Please bring your gold coin donation to support this wonderful and worthy cause.

Gina Willams and Guy Ghouse Concert – Reminder

We are delighted to invite you to a very special event at Beeliar PS.   We have the wonderful Gina Williams and Guy Ghouse in concert on Friday the 22nd October.

Gina and Guy will share their Noongar culture and language through song.  Over many years, Noongar language has been reduced to a whisper; but in the same way the butterfly emerges from the cocoon, we are now witnessing a beautiful renaissance of language through song.  Informed by the four principles of Koort (Heart), Moort (Family and Community), Boodja (Land) and Koorlangka (Children and Legacy) Gina and Guy take audiences on a journey they’re not likely to forget.  It is truly an inspirational concert and not to be missed.

We hope you can join us for this celebration, please follow the link to book your free ticket.

Congratulations Lucille!! 2021 Telethon Kid

Dear Parents and Carers,

We are very proud of our Year 3 Superstar Lucille Antipas.  Lucille has been selected as one of two Telethon Kids for 2021.  She is a bit of a celebrity and will have lots of important events and fundraising activities to be a part of.  Lucille was in the newspaper – and in case you missed it the photos are attached to this notice.

We have started a fundraising page (please see the attached link) – and will give some more information about some events that will occur over the next couple of weeks shortly.  If you would like to donate some money for Telethon this year you are able to do this through the school portal and Lucille will be involved in the handover of all funds raised.  It is obviously a very worthy cause every year – but it is even more special this year for Beeliar PS to have Lucille as such an important part of the event!
