Our 100th day of school was a wonderful celebration that allowed us to look back at all the learning that has taken place so far and all that we have achieved over our 100 days in Pre-Primary.
We started our morning with a visit from Mrs Thuijs and Mr Munro who listened as we counted all the way to 100.
Then we completed our number and writing activities that were all linked with the number 100. We had a lovely day full of fun and laughter. It was a great celebration of learning!
At St. Emilie’s we have wonderful outdoor play spaces to enhance our learning. The children have space to explore, discover, experiment and develop their gross and fine motor skills while being active and healthy.
Exploring the Creek
In early childhood we value frequent and regular opportunities to explore and learn in our outdoor environments and natural play spaces. We recognise that young children learn best through physical and sensory experiences – active play.
Our natural bushland provides a play space to give children contact with the natural world and unique opportunities to engage with nature, the weather and the seasons. The children learn to understand and respect nature and the interdependence of humans, animals, plants and life cycles.

Outdoor environments are a platform for creative play and the development of the imagination and problem solving skills. The outdoor environment offers children opportunities for freedom and movement through physical activity and promotes a sense of well being.

Outdoor spaces provide for hands on, sensory learning and MESSY = FUN!

When you take children outside regularly you see the JOY, WONDER and EXCITEMENT that they experience when they engage in learning in their outdoor environment.
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.
What a lucky girl you are, Claudia Philippa, to have two amazing and loving big brothers to watch over you!
