In class we have been exploring different types of poetry to use in our ‘Slams’. One type is alliteration. Here are some examples of alliteration on the topic of poverty.
Congratulations to the St Emilies Dance Troupe on their tremendous performance on Wednesday night at the
Catholic Performing Arts Festival.
Their great effort, dedication and team work shone through and they absolutely ‘Danced the House Down!’
We could not be prouder of each and every one of the students who achieved great judges comments and results for their dance
‘What I Like About You’.
From backstage to centre stage, they represented our school beautifully and showed great sportsmanship.
We would also like to thank all of the parents who volunteered their time to help prepare the students for the performance.
Your time and effort is greatly appreciated!
Lastly, thank you for the overall support and well wishes we have received from all students, staff, parents and family members.
It has been a fantastic year for the Dance Troupe.
Dancers, you should all feel very proud of what you have achieved.
-Miss Kristy Foong and Mrs Kirsten Fowler

On Friday the Year Six students and the Year Two students spent some time together creating an acrostic poem.
The Year Two’s have been learning about different types of poetry so they taught their Year Six buddies what they knew. In return the Year Sixes taught the Year Two’s how to use PicCollage and insert text, photos and pictures.
It was a fun afternoon and we look forward to sharing more of our learning soon!
Thanks Year Six!
