Many thanks to all our dads and grandads who came along and to all the staff for their very generous gift of time and breaky burger-making talent!
To see the big smiles on children’s faces is of course what we all enjoy and celebrate at opportunities such as this.
Dads and Grandads – keep on giving the very best of yourselves to your kids – time, honesty, kindness, humour, goodness, wisdom and the uniqueness that is each one of you …
It was a pleasure catching up with you all and we wish you all the very best for what is left of the year ahead!
On the 22nd August St Emilie’s celebrated Book Week with the theme, ‘Reading is my Secret Power.’ The Year 2 Blue and 6 Blue buddies spent some time participating in shared reading together in the beautiful sunshine. It was wonderful to see the students dressed creatively as a character from a book, which has inspired them.
Guided Inquiry – Celebrating Differences (Social Justice)
We are enjoying celebrating our cultural differences in Year One and Year Two!
Our recent Cultural Fair allowed our students to…
- Develop an appreciation of multicultural Australia, embracing different foods, games, music, and traditions from different cultures.
- Show respect for those who sound, look and act differently to themselves.
- Understand that although we are all different, we all hold similar values, and we all have the right to be treated fairly.
We had a wonderful time at our Cultural Fair!
A huge thank you to the wonderful Mums, Dads and family friends who volunteered their time, prepared presentations, played games with us, prepared yummy food for us to taste and passionately shared their culture…with a smile and a huge amount of patience!
We loved our morning together!
