We have had a lot of fun celebrating Book Week in Year Two!
This was also a great opportunity to get together with our Year 6 buddies. We worked together to create a new book cover to match our costumes, and had a lot of fun sharing our stories and ideas.
On Tuesday 29th August, we were also very lucky to enjoy a special ‘Super Duper’ performance by ‘Perform! Educational Musicals’. This musical featured some of the shortlisted and award winning books for 2017, and highlighted the way books can allow us to escape to anywhere!
We are quickly becoming very talented story writers in Year Two, and cannot wait to share more of our narratives with you during the Open Night in Week 9!
Please make sure you read the web post (in School News) by Mr Davis, our Health & Physical Education Specialist Teacher, who organised St Emilie’s representation at our first interschool Basketball competition!
Our Boys A team went through the comp undefeated and took out the Grand final in a very impressive win! A super effort and congratulations boys!
Lachy (far right) is to be highly commended on representing our school to such a high standard in both basketball and in oracy and drama in the last two weeks. Bravo Lachy – it is wonderful to see you developing your strengths across different domains!
As a school we pride ourselves on the breadth and depth of opportunity our students receive across all areas of the curriculum – sport being one of these.
A huge thank you to Mr Paul Davis on his ongoing commitment to raising the profile of physical education and sporting opportunity in our school – you are doing a really top job and it is very much appreciated!
While as leaders we cannot always attend each of these events, we are there in spirit and the updates we receive during days like these are certainly very exciting!
Congrats to all students who participated – being actively involved and being good sports, is another cause for much celebration here at St Emilie’s!
Well done everyone and thank you.
Our run of Performing Arts success just keeps on rolling in with our Year 6 student performances in the Oracy and Drama section!
All students achieved excellent results and have so much to feel very proud of!
On Friday we were informed that Aaliyah Poinen, has also won a shield – the Oracy Australia Award in the Primary Solo Speech & Drama section. Whoo hoo! Congratulations Aaliyah!
Many thanks to all our wonderful dads for coming along to our Father’s Day brekkie and to those of you who ‘had a close shave’, hammered, played and got into the swing of a late start to work – BRAVO!!!
We wish all our dads and grandads a very happy and relaxing Father’s Day!
