St Emilie’s has a new Scientist in Schools partner called Mr Chris Sayer!
Mr Sayer is a retired Mechanical Engineer who has agreed to come and work with some of our extension science students in science and maths. For maths buffs, he will be talking Fibonacci numbers and the golden ratio theory and in science we are looking into compressive forces and explore how a structure supports a load.

Please make some time to read the following article which highlights some excellent points in regard to the use of social media in the school community.
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!
