Mrs Cogger is keen to encourage all our budding scientists at St Emilie’s to attend this local event. Our students have entered the Design a Logo competition and the winning entry (yet to be announced) will feature in the Community Expo banner.
The St.Emilie’s Cross Country carnival was held last Friday.
Our Year 3 -6 children showed amazing effort, courage and determination to complete the course. Thankfully the rain stayed away and we saw some terrific running ability on display.
The results of the carnival were very close, with Gannon edging out De Vialar to win this year’s competition.
Gannon 176 pts
De Vialar 171 pts
Mackillop 164 pts
Mazenod 150 pts
The next challenge for us will be the Inter School Cross Country, being held at Tomato Lake this Thursday. We will be hoping to defend our title as reigning champions.

In the holidays our sculptures and research for the Earth Assist Recycled Art Competition were entered! We are so proud of our sculptures and we gained lots of valuable knowledge in researching information in order to answer the competition questions.
Part of our research involved finding out how long it takes for some of the materials we use to break down in the environment.
