SRC | Extension & Enrichment


The SRC are excited to present RUOK Week, thanks to our YouthFest grant. Students and staff have been working together to put on a program of events for week 10, to celebrate RUOK Day on the 14th of September. RUOK Day is all about having meaningful conversations around mental health and wellbeing. 

SRC students thought of a range of activities to support mental health and wellbeing here at ESC.

The events we are running include:

  • Scavenger hunt
  • Zumba
  • African drumming
  • Photo Booth
  • Sport games
  • Recess library activities each day, with a focus on mindfulness

We are trying to raise money for HeadSpace, who support many of our students with access to mental health and wellbeing support. 

Please encourage your student to get involved, donate some money to HeadSpace and talk about their mental health and wellbeing!

Extension and Enrichment | Elevation’s Inaugural Spelling Bee

On Tuesday the 22nd of August, Elevation held its inaugural Spelling Bee! 26 students in Year Seven and Eight participated in the competition. This was a great opportunity for contestants to expand their vocabulary and challenge themselves beyond the expected level for their age.

Students were given practice sheets in the weeks leading up to the Spelling Bee and studied hard to learn how to spell difficult words. The competition was exciting and there was a tough battle between the few remaining contestants.

After an enthusiastic effort by all, two students prevailed. Saviru Kalansuriya of 7F won first place, succeeding  with the word “cholesterol”, and received a $50 JB Hi-Fi Voucher and a novel in recognition. Rayshan Ruben of 8A won second place with the prize of a $20 JB Hi-Fi Voucher. 

Well done to Saviru and Rayshan, your prizes are well-deserved. All contestants displayed a great attitude for learning and should be very proud of themselves. The Spelling Bee will return in 2024, so start preparing now if you want a chance at winning!
