On the 22nd August St Emilie’s celebrated Book Week with the theme, ‘Reading is my Secret Power.’ The Year 2 Blue and 6 Blue buddies spent some time participating in shared reading together in the beautiful sunshine. It was wonderful to see the students dressed creatively as a character from a book, which has inspired them.
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.
Our Year 6 Eagle’s Cup Netball team began some chilly 8am morning trainings prior to our first game which was played on Friday 10th May. Mrs Ryan, Mrs Harvey and Miss Halton worked with the students, who quickly picked up many new skills and effective tactics for developing as an effective netball team. We have had some great games so far and are really enjoying the competition!
