On Tuesday 6th August, twenty students from Year 5 and 6 travelled to Mercy College to perform their liturgical dance routine. The girls have been rehearsing their piece for the past ten weeks, in preparation for the Performing Arts Festival for Catholic Schools. The movement was performed to the, ‘Compassion Hymn’, and it highlighted the amazing and overflowing mercy, that Christ our Lord so generously shares with us all. The girls represented our school through dance, celebrating the rich Gospel message of peace, kindness and forgiveness, and can be very proud of their efforts.
Thursday the 1st August saw St.Emilie’s competing in our Inter-School Cross Country Carnival.
Our students were simply amazing!
Not only did they represent our school with distinction on the course, but the sportsmanship and team first attitude they displayed was outstanding.
Whilst we had many outstanding individual performances, it was the overall team effort that led to our success.
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.
