Last year, to mark the 100th Anniversary of Our Lady’s appearance in Fatima, Portugal, in 1917, Pope Francis blessed six statues of Our Lady of Fatima and sent into each of the six continents for public veneration and to encourage devotion to Our Lady.
This Friday afternoon students will gather in the church for 30 minutes to listen to Missionary sisters talk about Our Lady of Fatima’s call to prayer.
Parents are very welcome to come along and join us if you can make it. As you will read below, the pilgram image will be in our Church from 12.30pm -6.30pm .
A huge thank you to all families for your wonderful support of the children’s school disco and drinks and nibbles night last Friday! We all had a really great time and the children were fantastic from start to finish!
Despite awful weather we had over 350 children attend the disco and over 100 parents gather in the hub to have a chat! A really awesome community effort and we thank you sincerely for braving the weather!
A special thank you to Alison McEniery for organising the children’s disco and to Rebecca Richards for getting the Hub gathering together. These very busy working women rallied helpers and spent a considerable amount of time making sure that everyone was well catered for. Bravo girls!
Many thanks also go out to Miss Goodall and Miss Thomas who put their hand up to be DJ’s for the night! They did a fabulous job and the children really enjoyed seeing two familiar faces 🙂
As a leader, I am deeply grateful to all our stafffor their generous presence, support and practical help on the night – we are very lucky indeed to have such a committed team here at St Emilie’s!
Kerry Ross took some wonderful photos at the disco. We will let you know how you can purchase some shortly! 🙂 Thank you Kerry!
All in all a fabulous night of fun and friendship!
Congratulations to all our talented Year 4, 5 and 6 students who represented St Emilie’s in the School Band Performance at the Catholic Arts Performing Arts Festival for 2018 at Orana Catholic School.
As you will see by the movie clips above, it was a very well rehearsed, skilful and engaging performance. A special thank you to Mr Nick Dabbs for his effort and skill in preparing our students so well.
Mrs Cogger encourages all families with a keen passion for Science to attend this wonderful community event. Our students are submitting entries to the ‘logo’ competition and hopefully some of our drawings and designs will be on display the expo.
The St.Emilie’s Cross Country team have won the 2018 Inter-School Competition!
Our Year 4 students got us off to a flying start with Reece (runner up), Lila, Taylah and Allira all recording strong finishing positions.
Our Year 5 events were highlighted by Jessica L, who blew her opposition out of the water to win the Girls event. Caitlyn M also featured promininently in this event, finishing 3rd. While Jacob finished strongly to run 2nd in the Boys event.
Our Year 6 students finished the meet off strongly, with Alex putting in a huge final sprint to win the Boys event.
The Girls were very consistent in their event, with Loren, Chloe and Annette all featuring in the top 10.
Full credit must be given to all St.Emilie’s runners. The effort, attitude and support they gave each other was outstanding.
Many of our runners also turned up early to school for extra training sessions throughout last Term, and our students are fully deserving of the success they had today.
Last Friday, our students from Year 3-6 competed in our 2018 House Cross Country carnival.
Thankfully the weather provided great conditions for running and enabled the whole school to come out and cheer the runners on!
