In Year Three, we have been discussing the Fruit of the Holy Spirit focus, joy. We watched a video that helped us to understand that joy from things like trophies and kicking goals, only lasts for a short time. We thought this was a little odd, until we realised that the special joy that we find in Jesus, lasts forever. We also reflected on how we can share the joy we receive from Jesus, with others. We discussed the quote, “How wonderful is it that we laugh because our bodies cannot contain the joy?”
Blake came up with his own quote, that we loved – “When you give joy, you actually kind of feel it too.”

Today the Year 5 & 6 students from the St. Emilie’s Christian Dance Group expressed their love and faith, through movement and dance, as part of the Performing Arts Festival for Catholic Schools. All of the students danced with joy and honesty, and received wonderful feedback from the guest adjudicator present. Luckily for the community of St. Emilie’s, the Christian Dance Group will also be performing their liturgical dance at the upcoming Feast of Assumption Mass, and would love you to be present. Here are some snapshots of the performance at today’s showcase.

To wrap up our Sustainability Inquiry unit, we created songs about sustaining our environment. Some themes included turning off lights when they are not in use, and only buying what you need. We choreographed actions to help us to remember our simple tips. Small changes each day can make a huge difference in our future.
