Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Music Assembly has been postponed from Monday 18th September to Wednesday 20th September at 8:40am in the undercover area outside the multipurpose room. The choir and the band will perform for students and any parents who would like to come along.
Probability is the chance that something will happen – how likely it is that some event will occur. Sometimes you can measure a probability with a number like “10% chance“, or you can use words such as impossible, unlikely, possible, even chance, likely and certain. Example: “It is unlikely to rain tomorrow”.
Here we are choosing the likelihood of particular events happening using the different word responses to explain the chance outcome.
SMARTIE BOX INVESTIGATION
Outcome: Practise tallying and creating a bar graph with the help of a packet of Smarties!
First we estimated how many smarties in a packet. The range was 10 in some packets up to 14.
Next we guessed the colours.
Then we estimated how many of each colour would be in our packet.
All our individual results varied. Some of the whole class outcomes were:
313 smarties in total out of 26 little boxes given to each student in the class.
Red was the most popular colour
Blue and pink were the least popular colours
If we did this activity again we know the answers are LIKELY to be different.
Families are reminded of another very special opportunity to connect with your child’s learning journey by visiting their classroom and by walking through our hall display focusing on Social Justice, at the OPEN NIGHT Wednesday 13th September, 4-6pm.
We really hope each family will be there to celebrate our shared efforts. Coming together as a whole community is very special!
Please be considerate in regard to parking as times like these put a lot of pressure on available parking spots – carpool if you can!
Thank you everyone and looking forward to seeing you soon!
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!
Pictured below is one of our generous dads, Mr Forrest, who so expertly coached, motivated and supported our team throughout the day. Mrs Forrest (not pictured) played a key role also – many thanks!
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!
You are all invited to a Thanksgiving Mass on Wednesday 13th September at 9.00am to farewell our good friend, Mrs Aquino before she leaves St Emilie’s to take up her new position at Mother Teresa’s in Baldivis.
The Mass is a special way for children and families to pray for Anne and one another. Following the Mass, a morning tea for all parents and grandparents will be held in the new Learning Hub. The morning tea gives families can opportunity to say their goodbyes (as Anne leaves our school after the House Athletics Carnival on Friday). If you can come along, we would really LOVE to see you there as a way of saying thank you to Anne for her her care and for all her hard work in our community over many years.
Please RSVP your attendance at the Mass and Morning Tea to StEmiliesAdmin@cewa.edu.aubefore or by Friday the 8th September – THANK YOU!
If you were able to drop a small plate of food in for morning tea on your way to Mass (via the Office) it would be very much appreciated, thank you!
