On Friday a small group of students met with Mrs Cogger to work in St Emilie’s Community Vegie Garden. Our task was to pack and transport potted herbs to take up to the hall to sell to our gathering assembly guests. Thank you to all our guests and customers who support our vegie garden project.
Today, St.Emilie’s were paid a visit by the Perth Scorchers cricket development team. It was fantastic to have them come along and provide our Year 3 Students with a fun filled Cricket Clinic.
We were also very lucky to have Perth Scorchers star and Australian Opening batsman, Cameron Bancroft helping the kids out with their activities.
He also took the time to sign some autographs and have some great conversations with our students.
Our Year 3 Students completed a number of cricket based activities that included catching, throwing and fielding skills.
Some of our students were even lucky enough to receive prizes, which included a signed cricket bat!

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.
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 staff for 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!
All in all a fabulous night of fun and friendship!
