Hoping the holidays are going well and the children are having a wonderfully relaxing time! Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you who have family or friends living in any of the bushfire affected areas … let’s hope firefighters get these fires under control very soon and that they also stay safe in what must be such a difficult and onerous job in these conditions.
When we get back to school the Fete Committee will really need your help with donations of goods, time and expertise.
How can you help us?
Please let us know what you can give us, any sponsors you have lined up or any ideas you have! Leaving your name and details with the Front Office or emailing StEmiliesAdmin@cathednet.wa.edu.au will get to us.
If you have any items around the house that are in good condition and are too good to throw away, but perhaps are ready for a new home, then please save them in a box for our SCHOOL FETE.on Sunday 20th March We will be having a TRASH AND TREASURE STALL and we need as many different items as possible!
We will also be running a preloved BOOK STALL and a preloved TOY STALL and all donations will be very much appreciated.
We will be also selling surplus school desks, chairs and cupboards so look out for a bargain – all in excellent condition and a practical addition to a chid’s playroom
Are you able to start growing some plant cuttings for our PLANT STALL? Do you have some established pot plants you would like to donate? Have you got plants that can be divided like agapanthus, succulents or moses in a cradle that we could re-pot? Do you have spare pots or any contacts in regard to obtaining free potting mix? Donations of herbs would be great too!
If you make great JAMS, CHUTNEYS OR PICKLES we would love some of these to sell!
Maybe you could make us some SOCK MONKEYS? http://www.craftpassion.com/2012/04/how-to-sew-sock-monkey.html/2
Maybe you are a good sew-er? Perhaps you could help us make some FAIRY, PIRATE AND SUPER CAPE COSTUMES?
Thank you and looking forward to hearing from you soon! 🙂
I hope the school holiday break is going smoothly for you and that you are enjoying your children and the simple rhythms of everyday life, hopefully without the busyness of the school term.
A sense of wonder and awe needs to be nurtured, cultivated and valued in childhood for it is a state that has the opportunity of bringing the human soul much peace, joy and clarity.
In our busy, time poor, techno, media filled world, our children are unfortunately often robbed of opportunities to connect with nature and with the beauty to be found in the simple things of life.
We all need quiet, ‘tools down’ time to help us find the sheer wonder in our everyday lives.
Decluttering from technology, tv, electronica and busyness and reacquainting ourselves with parks, the beach, the back lawn, simple prayer and going slow for a while, provides the space in our hearts where gratefulness can reside, gratefulness for the things that ultimately mean the most. From gratefulness comes contentment and peace …. and we can all do with a little more of these things!
Keep treading gently within your families and try to invest wisely in your parenting choices – it isn’t easy, but it is an investment and really worth the effort.
Take good care everyone.

This is a really helpful resource for any families who have a child with Autism or who may be wondering about how to go about finding out more about the process of seeking assistance if you might suspect your child has autism.
As you will read there is nothing to fear about an Autism diagnosis, however good support can really make a difference.
The more we can all educate ourselves about this and many other conditions that impact on children’s learning and lives, the more we can support and assist families and children to flourish into the years ahead!
