Today Year 6 took part in Life Education’s ‘Relate Respect Connect’ unit.
This unit promotes building safe and respectful relationships both online and offline by:
- Understanding how to respect ourselves and others
- Identifying the characteristics of positive relationships and the importance of relationships to our own and others’ wellbeing
- Developing strategies to help maintain positive online and offline relationships
- Practising strategies to respond to unsafe or disrespectful situations online and offline
The Year Sixes completed a variety of hands on and collaborative tasks which encouraged them to reflect on their own relationships at school, in the home, in the wider community and online.
For more information check out the parent tips on helping your child to:
- develop self-respect

On Friday 20th July, St Emilie’s held it’s annual Cross Country event. Many students have trained hard with Mr Davis, and they were fit and ready for the challenge. It was fantastic to see all students giving their best effort and using a growth mindset to show persistence amidst the challenge. We were blessed with a beautifully dry day and supportive parents who encouraged the children both on the day and in the lead up to the event.
Mrs Ryan and Miss Hynes are very proud of all of the Year Six students who participated. Bravo!
This week Year 6 completed a first aid course delivered by Stacey from St John’s ambulance.
During this incursion, we learned how to use DR SAB to help someone who is unconscious. Each letter in this mnemonic represents a life saving action.
D: Danger. Is it safe to approach the person? Can you hear, see or smell danger?
R: Response. Does the person respond to your voice? Do they respond to a squeeze of their collarbone?
S: Send. Is there someone nearby who can send or call for help? Do you or the unconscious person have a mobile phone to call ‘000’ on?
A: Airway. Is their airway blocked? Can you clear it of any debris and tilt their head back to open their airway?
B: Breathing. Are they breathing? Have they taken at least two breaths in the last ten seconds?
We also learned how to safely place someone into the recovery position while waiting for help to arrive.
