Thank you to all families and, of course, staff who supported our first community social event for 2017 – the St Emilie’s Family Fun Night.
Although the 39 degree weather may have put some people off, those that came along enjoyed a very pleasant night filled with great fun, good conversation, some great dance moves, friendly (?) competition and delicious food.
A huge thank you to Alison, Bec and their fantastic support team for all your preparation and hard work both prior to and on the night – the Sausage Sizzle, drinks and ice-creams were very much appreciated.
Thank you to Mr Cogger and his Year Six helpers for setting up the barbecues, tents and shades.
Thank you also to the special people who stayed behind and assisted with packing away at the end of the evening – your generosity was greatly appreciated.
We noted some very tired little cherubs heading home after a great time together – staff included!
At 5,37pm on Friday night, while we were gathering together for our Christmas Concert – dedicated to big bother Philip, the beautiful and precious Claudia Philippa Lombardo made her entrance into the world.
On behalf of all St Emilie’s families, staff and children, we send much love and blessings to Trish and Tony – and to their loving families. We respect the coming days and weeks will be a time for them to be together, as a family and with those closest to them.
Should any St Emilie’s families wish to send cards etc. please drop them to the office and they will be delivered to Trish and Tony. We have sent flowers on behalf of the whole community.
St Emilie’s Christmas Concert 2016
Thank you to all families and friends who supported our children and staff at last night’s Christmas Concert.
The night was dedicated to our beautiful Philip, who we know would have been rocking it with all the other angels!
From the start of the opening act, it was obvious that St Emilie’s really has got talent!!
The children were certainly the stars of the show, with their incredible dance moves and angelic voices. From our smallest Kindy children to the graduating class of 2016, we were absolutely ‘wowed’ and thoroughly entertained by performance after performance.
Through the adventures of our Superheroes and Nativity Characters, we were reminded that without Christ – there is no Christmas and that the birth of this very special child, over 2000 years ago, changed the world forever.
Thank you to our outstanding staff who worked tirelessly to ensure the night was such a successful one. Special thanks to our Producer- Directors: Miss Louise Corkhill and Miss Ruby Carroll for their vision and creativity – and for bringing it all together so beautifully.
We are extremely grateful to Mrs Sharon Audino who came to our rescue (just like Super Woman) by sewing and altering costumes so our main actors would look so fabulous. We are very aware that Sharon is extremely busy and we thank her for generously sharing her special talents with us.
We know at the end of a two hour concert – the last thing anyone wants to do is stay back to help – so we sincerely thank the mums, dads, older siblings and grandparents (and students) who assisted with taking down and packing away the backdrop, lights and props, dismantling the stages and choir risers and making sure everything was in order before they headed home. The gift of time is priceless and it is generosity such as this that makes our school community such a positive, caring and cohesive one.
Well done, St Emilie’s, on sharing in this beautiful celebration of God’s greatest gift to each of us!
If you have one special pic from the night that you would be happy to share with us, please send it via the admin email.
