Please put a circle around Friday 6th June in your diary and rustle up a fun group of friends to join us at the St Emilie’s Quiz/Trivia Night! Make sure you phone the Office to book your table and please pay for your tickets ($10.00 each and $80.00 for a table of 8 people) asap. For ease of administration it will be best if one person takes responsibility for your table i.e. pays for the table and then your friends pay you back – this way we can confirm our numbers and get our planning into full swing! Staff will be generously serving you, selling drinks and snacks, assisting with child-minding and generally helping the night to run smoothly. We are looking forward to a fun night! Raffles and games will provide some frivolity and some excitement too!
For any family who has never had a good look at the CEO website it is well worth a visit!
Please find attached a letter from our Director of Catholic Education, Mr Tim McDonald, in regard to the current Royal Commission.
And few people could help us to pause and reflect better, on such profound matters of the heart, than our very own Michael Leunig …
Please check out the following link to some really fabulous family resources. You will find good common sense advice for families dealing with some common child metal health issues. We all know that good parenting takes hard work and mindfulness. We hope you will find these resources helpful and interesting.
We hope you all enjoyed a very happy Easter and welcome back to Term Two!
Students and staff commence on Monday 28th April.
We hope you have all managed to spend some quality time together over the school holidays. Staff are well rested and very much looking forward to getting back into the swing of things for Term Two! Looking forward to seeing you soon!
Parents are advised that Kindy Enrolments for 2015 will be held early in Term 2, 2014. If you have a child who will turn 4 by 1 July 2015, please make sure that you have a completed enrolment form lodged with the school office. Please phone the Office to secure a date and time as per the letter that was sent out last term.
Really looking forward to meeting you all!
Congratulations to all those children from Year Three who received their First Reconciliation last Thursday evening. It is certainly very comforting to know, that especially when we have lost our way, God searches high and low for us until he finds us … and that when he finds us, he celebrates our return!
As families, may we continue to pray for the courage and the wisdom that it takes to be people of daily forgiveness and unconditional love with all we meet.
At 10.29am a BIG CONSPIRACY between students and a few very select staff ( NOT TEACHERS!) was unveiled on April Fools Day at St Emilie’s! Just as teachers from Years 1-6 were finishing lessons, the song ‘Stop Right Now’ by the Spice Girls was played over the school PA system and children suddenly jumped up and performed a class flash dance, much to the shock, amazement and confusion of teachers … the dawning realisation that it was a whole school April Fool’s joke soon led to much laughter (and relief, as teachers realised the significance of the date!) Mrs Aroozoo’s four students certainly put a super delighted smile on her face! Well done children – you were awesome and you kept such a great secret! Loved it! I also loved how the kids doing PE on the oval also managed to pull it off! Ah, yes… life is best when a little ‘school spice’ is added from time to time!
