UPDATE – The Smarties Challenge has raised £405 for East Meru Community School!
During Advent we have decided to raise money to help build a classroom for East Meru Community School in Tanzania.
The classroom will transform lives, spread hope and enable more children to receive an education.
St Elizabeth’s has strong links with this school.
Miss Schofield and Mrs Whitehill sponsor a pupil each month and Mrs Whitehill is a UK director of the school.
We will be giving each class two tubes of Smarties and would like you to fill them with 20p pieces.
You could earn 20p by doing jobs at home or by asking people to save 20p pieces for you. When you have some 20p pieces, bring them into school and put them in your class Smarties tube.
You could also buy a tube of Smarties and fill them with 20ps at home!
We’ve given you these Smarties to eat
But the empty tube you must keep
20p pieces are what you must find
Ask friends and family, they won’t mind
Fill up your tube, right to the top
Return in three weeks and we’ll collect the lot!
‘I have come so that they may have life and have it to the full.’

St Elizabeth’s Prayer Council took part in the Ykids WW1 Memorial in the North Park.
They made hearts to represent the “sweethearts” that families sent to their loved ones who were fighting.
They also went around the stations in the Memorial Garden and learnt local history facts about the soldiers and their lives.
We were all shocked to learn that 18 men from Antonio Street were killed as a result of WW1 battles.
Four year 6 pupils represented St Elizabeth’s at the Show Racism the Red Card event held at Everton FC.
As well as taking part in workshops and discussions, the pupils were also lucky enough to meet Everton Star, Oumar Niasse, who talked about his experiences in the five different countries he has lived in.
Today we held our annual Harvest Festival at St Elizabeth’s Church.
All the children took part, either singing, reading or performing.
Father Barry commented on how lovely and respectful the service was.
All harvest donations will be taken to the Cotton Street Homeless Centre.
Children from St Elizabeth’s Nursery classes went pumpkin picking and some of the pumpkins they picked were enormous!
All the children had a great day out.
Please come along and support our annual
Macmillan Coffee Morning
