Many, many thanks for coming along to support your children and our school last night – your presence and generosity of time and St Emilie’s spirit was greatly appreciated!
A sincere thank you to our most wonderful staff, who once again went ‘above and beyond’ to be able to provide this special opportunity for your family.
Many thanks also to Rachael and Larissa from the P&F and to all the parents and staff who organised and ran the sausage sizzle – it was extremely well supported and so delicious!
While the weather wasn’t ideal, in the grand scheme of things, it was better than it could have been!
To have Father Robert drop in was a very special treat! In walking around with Father he is still very connected to so many families at St Emilie’s and he will always hold a very special place in our hearts! He was very impressed by the work on show, the changes we have made to our buildings and he also expressed how happy he was that the wonderful spirit of St Emilie’s was still so vibrant and community minded.
Bravo one and all!
Fr Robert has baptised many of our older students and he speaks warmly of his days as the foundation priest!
Thank you to all our wonderful grandparents who came to support their families – very special!
Many thanks to these special members of our community who popped their name on our roster for cooking and serving the snaggers – you are WONDERFUL people – Larissa S, Rachel D, Nicole G (P&F), Denise H, Julie A, Kevin R, Rochelle F (parents), Gina D, Dave D (new family this year), Gloria B, Helen A (EA’s) Rachel V (Admin staff) and Nick Davies (former student), Ethan T, Gracie C (student teachers). 400 sausage sizzles were sold!
A huge thank you to Gillian and Janine on all their hard work with the Book Fair this year. Thanks also to families for your most wonderful support! Each year our commission helps to inject new book titles into our library, helping us to maintain a great collection of books for all ages!
A special thank you to all our Mums and Dads with babies and small children – it was a big effort to come along and we are very grateful!
The 2019 P&F QUIZ NIGHT has now come and gone, however we sincerely THANK the Coordinator of the evening – Mrs Teena Wheat, for her most wonderful organisation and hard work in getting the evening together.
Rachel Davies, the P&F President and the whole team of parent helpers and staff who supported Teena, are also to be greatly thanked and congratulated!
To all of you who came along to enjoy the night – many, many thanks! You were all a great bunch and it certainly appeared that much fun was had!
While the evening was largely offered as a community builder, thanks to the wonderful support of those who attended, an awesome total of $6,500 was raised (after expenses).
Below is a list of all the wonderful sponsors who supported us by providing so many fabulous prizes. Please look out for these businesses in the future as their input to the success of the evening was so appreciated.
The only other Fundraiser we have scheduled for the year is the whole school WALKATHON on Week 2 Term 4 Wed 23rd October. Please get behind your school and help your children find some sponsors over the school holidays!
Photos were kindly taken by Mr Dean Newman ( one of our parents) and who, among other talents, is a professional photographer! Many thanks Dean – your presence and contribution was fantastic!!

Please check your meeting time for your Two Way and Three Way Interview so you can be punctual and meetings can run on time.
Three way meetings are an opportunity for the child to showcase some of their work to a parent and to discuss their goals and progress. It is time to encourage the child’s efforts, and gently challenge if necessary.
Two way meetings are between the teacher and the parent only. The meeting is a wonderful opportunity to listen, to ask questions and to clarify how your child is progressing in regard to various aspects of their school experience.
Please come with a positive attitude and don’t forget to thank your teacher for their time and their efforts in relation to supporting your child’s learning here at St Emilie’s.
Student-led three-way conferences take the form of a conversation between the student, their parents and their teacher. These give students an opportunity to share their growth as a learner. They accept accountability and responsibility for their progress and achievement, and demonstrate a growing understanding of their development as independent learners.
The student is expected to take more of the central role during discussions as they get older. The teacher is involved but is not necessarily driving the interview – the teacher acts as the facilitator and prompter where necessary.
The Three way conference also involves some form of portfolio or e-portfolio that shows a range of evidence of learning that the student and teacher has selected.
Conferencing is part of the reporting process.
Three-way conferences are designed to achieve the following goals:
- to help students demonstrate evidence of learning
- to teach students the process of reflection and self-evaluation
- to facilitate the development of students’ organisational and oral communication skills and to increase their self-confidence
- to encourage students, parents, and teachers to engage in open and honest dialogue
- to encourage students to accept personal responsibility for their learning
- to increase parent understanding of their child’s learning through improving attendance at and understanding of the assessment and reporting process.
