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.
The children have been fascinated with watching the metamorphosis of the silkworms in our classroom. Thanks to the Bollen family for bringing in eggs and larvae for us. We have been able to experience first hand the lifecycle of the silkworm from eggs to moths.
This week the children have been closely observing the pupae, cocoons and moths. We have done research on the life cycle of the silkworm and the children have engaged in observational drawing to illustrate and anecdote the lifecycle.

We have had a great start to Term One in Pre Primary. The children have settled into their new classroom and established positive relationships with their peers and teachers. We are engaging in lots of hands on, meaningful and fun learning activities in our indoor and outdoor environments. This term our integrated learning topic is ‘Community’. We are building our understanding of our classroom as a learning community.
In Week Two our ‘Letter of the Week’ was the letter S. We had some fun engaging in ‘hands on’ activities.
We have been exploring numbers as we are on our way counting to the 100th Day of School.
We were all excited when Mr Cogger filled our Pre Primary creek! It is a very popular spot in our bushland area and water play provides a great way to beat the heat.
We look forward to sharing more of our learning adventures with you soon.
