Thank you to all of our wonderful Year Three families for donating all of your recyclable materials! We have organised them into plastics, papers and boxes, and have been busy using the materials to create our endangered animal sculptures. Keep an eye out for some updates in the coming weeks, as we make the final touches on our masterpieces, before we enter them into the ‘2019 Rethink Waste Recycled Art Competition’.
This week the Year 3 students enjoyed an incursion with Jason Pitman (environmental scientist) from Perth NRM (Natural Resource Management).
The students learned about the Swan and Canning River catchment and how our actions at school and at home can affect the river ecosystem.
The Year 3 students learned about some of the species living in the river and how we can reduce some of our impacts on their habitat.
We thank Jason for coming to St Emilie’s and sharing his knowledge and enthusiasm about the Swam/Canning River catchment with us. We all learnt a lot and it was a wonderful opportunity to connect our knowledge with a real life purpose.
To all our wonderful families, THANK YOU so much for your amazing and generous support of your school by delivering tantalisingly delicious treats and by signing up to sell or cook at tomorrow’s Election. Your delicious donations mean so much … they show us that amidst the busyness and demands of family life, you understand that this opportunity is a great one and funds raised will really support our whole community.
These glorious savoury and sweet treats come from Cafe Denada in Mount Pleasant – thanks to the Ng and Fu family who run this business.
A huge thank you to Rachael, Larissa and their team of helpers who popped in today to make sure that everything is ready to go … There was much laughter coming from the staffroom from Mums and many wistful looks from staff as they passed by your yummy donations! 🙂 If you have been unable to assist with food or a roster slot please come along and buy some of the delicious food on offer while you are waiting to vote.
Thanks again everyone and have a terrific weekend 🙂
