Self-regulation is being able to manage feelings so they don’t intrude heavily on relationships or day-to-day life. This might involve being able to resist ‘losing it’ in upsetting or frustrating situations, or being able to calm down when big feelings start to take over.
Self-regulation is NOT about ‘not feeling’. Locking feelings away can cause as much trouble as any outburst. There is nothing wrong with having big feelings. All feelings are valid and it’s okay for kids to feel whatever they feel. What’s important is how those feelings are managed. The key is to nurture children towards being able to acknowledge and express what they’re feeling, without causing breakage to themselves, their friendships or other people.

Thank you to all families and friends who supported our children and staff at last night’s Christmas Concert.
The night was dedicated to our beautiful Philip, who we know would have been rocking it with all the other angels!
From the start of the opening act, it was obvious that St Emilie’s really has got talent!!
The children were certainly the stars of the show, with their incredible dance moves and angelic voices. From our smallest Kindy children to the graduating class of 2016, we were absolutely ‘wowed’ and thoroughly entertained by performance after performance.
Through the adventures of our Superheroes and Nativity Characters, we were reminded that without Christ – there is no Christmas and that the birth of this very special child, over 2000 years ago, changed the world forever.
Thank you to our outstanding staff who worked tirelessly to ensure the night was such a successful one. Special thanks to our Producer- Directors: Miss Louise Corkhill and Miss Ruby Carroll for their vision and creativity – and for bringing it all together so beautifully.
We are extremely grateful to Mrs Sharon Audino who came to our rescue (just like Super Woman) by sewing and altering costumes so our main actors would look so fabulous. We are very aware that Sharon is extremely busy and we thank her for generously sharing her special talents with us.
We know at the end of a two hour concert – the last thing anyone wants to do is stay back to help – so we sincerely thank the mums, dads, older siblings and grandparents (and students) who assisted with taking down and packing away the backdrop, lights and props, dismantling the stages and choir risers and making sure everything was in order before they headed home. The gift of time is priceless and it is generosity such as this that makes our school community such a positive, caring and cohesive one.
Well done, St Emilie’s, on sharing in this beautiful celebration of God’s greatest gift to each of us!
If you have one special pic from the night that you would be happy to share with us, please send it via the admin email.
