Many thanks to all the fabulous families who came along to join in our Family Fun Night for 2018 – you were such a wonderful example to one another and to your children!
The goal of the night was simply to be together as a community, to give our kids a chance to gather in a relaxed social setting and for all of us to get to know and to welcome new families to St Emilie’s.
We are so grateful to every family that made the effort on a Friday night to come along – especially those who reached out in friendship to others. Your presence means a lot to us all and especially to your children.
School Photos information is being sent home with your child this afternoon.
Please note that this year photos will be ordered online through MSP Photography’s online ordering system. Each child has a unique Shoot Key which you can use to place your order. If you order online you do not need to bring your child’s slip to the office.
If you do not have internet access and cannot order online, there is a small number of individual order slips available from the Office.
If you wish to order a Family Photo, please collect a Family Photo order form from the Office. Family Photos cannot be ordered online and these must be returned to the Office before Photo Day.
All children preparing to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation, First Eucharist or Confirmation in 2018 are required to attend one of theParish Sacramental Commitment Masses.
These masses will be celebrated, starting this weekend, over the weekends of the 17 & 18 February and the 24 & 25 February 2018. Saturday evening mass begins at 6.30pm with Sunday masses being held at 7.15am, 9am and 5pm.
When you arrive at one of these masses, please make sure you have your name ticked off by one of the teachers or catechists who will be waiting in the foyer. Your Enrolment Form must be brought to one of the Commitment Masses. If you have already placed your completed Enrolment Forms in the tray in the church foyer, you still are expected to attend a Commitment Mass.
Attached below is a copy of the ceremony that will take place. All masses will have the ceremony on overheads.
A few reminders about procedures for dropping off and picking up your children here at St Emilie’s.
Please give way to cars at the crosswalk so Amherst Road can be cleared as much as possible of traffic. In the afternoon there is a teacher on duty to facilitate this.
When dropping off/picking up children, drive through as far as possible. Do not stop in front of the administration building if there is space in front of you to drive forward.
Please do not enter through the gate near the Church or the gate on Philadelphia Parade as these are exit gates only.
Only cross at the crosswalk, there are a number of families crossing in front of where the staff park their cars.
When being dropped off and picked up, children should only exit/enter their cars on the left hand side of the car, school bags should not be in the boots of cars. If your child is unable to do up their seat belt independently, please do not use drive through.
Museum of Water is a radically different museum that showcases, in Australia’s driest state, our connection to the world’s most essential life source. For over a year UK artist Amy Sharrocks and WA custodians have been towing a rusty trailer, collecting watery donations and the memories that go with them.
The whole collection is at Fremantle Arts Centre. You can wander through a WA landscape where you can see more than 500 bottles of water, each with its own remarkable story. There are samples from a Dragon Tree Soak, grey water from a laundry, a splash from a Paralympian’s swimming pool.
The Museum of Water exhibition launches tonight at Fremantle Arts Centre. Included in this beautiful exhibition are the three bound volumes of students’ work that make up Watermarks. We are very pleased to be able to share this incredible book with you which features stories and drawings from students here at St Emilie’s.
If you are planning to go and visit The Museum of Water here are the opening details.
