Week 2 Term 2
On Tuesday 2nd July the Year Five and Six students participated in Keeping Safe Activities. The focus for this afternoon was on Relationships and we covered the topics; Rights and responsibilities of children and young people and Trusted Networks. The activities the students completed are all based on these focus areas.
Below is a link to the Rights of a child clip that the students viewed before completing the activities.
Overall, the teachers found that students were engaged and completed each activity, contributing some very insightful and interesting thoughts and opinions to each session. This was also a good precursor for next term’s learning about the concept of Social Justice.
Throughout this term, our year 6 student’s have competed in two Inter-School sporting events.
The Eagles Cup competition ran over the first six weeks of term. We played fixtures against Xavier, St.Joseph’s, St.Munchin’s, Notre Dame and Sacred Heart. These games were part of a round robin competition, seperate from the Lightning Carnival.
Both of our Netball teams were magnificent throughout the tournament. We managed to win both Netball competitions without losing a game.
Our AFL team boasted a record of 2 wins and 2 losses (with a bye against St.Munchin’s). They had hard fought wins against Sacred Heart and Xavier. Our AFL team finished the competition in 3rd position.
Our soccer team should be very proud of their efforts, winning 3 of their 5 games.
This is the best return yet from a St.Emilie’s soccer team, and was enough to have them finish 3rd on the table.
The Lightning Carnival then followed on from our Eagles Cup competition.
This was a one day event that involved playing all of our opposing schools in slightly shorter formats of the game, with a small rest between games.
All of our teams performed admirably throughout the day with both Netball teams finishing the Lightning carnival in 2nd Position and our Footy and Soccer teams both finished the day in 3rd position.
As always, we were extremely well supported by a number of parents. Thank you for taking the time to cheer us on.
A special thank you to Adam Mckie, who did a wonderful job coaching and training our Soccer team, also to Jacinta Passauer who gave up her Friday afternoons to umpire our netball, whether it be Home or Away.
A final thank you to all the staff that were involved in training and preparing the students throughout the term.
