This morning two of our St Emilie’s families met with Mrs Cogger to work in the veggie garden. The tasks were to pick and bag rocket and to pick, wash and bag radish. BTW Mrs Thuijs loves our radish!! Unfortunately she missed out on a bag this week as we sold out!
If you would like to volunteer for the veggie garden roster then please send Mrs Cogger an email as she is still looking for helpers to fill the roster. Her email is
We meet on the Friday mornings when there is an assembly. We work from 8-8:30am in the veggie garden and then take our produce to the hall to sell at the assembly.
Mrs Cogger would like to thank the Devereux boys Patrick and Merrick and Solomon Bonney for working so hard this morning.
On Friday night, the 18th of August, 40 talented students represented St Emilies in the Creative Dance section of the Catholic Performing Arts Festival.
They danced with precision, emotion and heart and truly reflected our theme of ‘Homeless Youth’.
As part of our whole school focus on ‘Social Justice’, the students danced a piece that reflected their own thoughts and questions about homeless kids in our world. Candles were used to symbolise the light of Christ as a beacon of hope.
To the students, we are beyond proud of each and everyone of you. You gave it your all and danced beautifully. Thank you for all of your effort and commitment this year. Congratulations and well done!
-Miss Kristy Foong, Miss Chantelle Goodall and Miss Tiana Massimi
Below is the introduction to our dance for 2017
To be without a home or a family. The feeling is an empty one.
What would people think? How would they see you? Would they even see you at all?
What does it mean to be truly homeless? Without love, without feeling, without light.
All we can do is hold the light of Christ close to us.
And we hope.
Hope that everything will be alright.
Mrs Cogger would like to remind all our science enthusiasts about the
FRONTIERS OF SCIENCE EXPO
on Sunday 20th August.
This is always a wonderful ‘free’ event in our local area (Kent St Weir in the Canning River Regional Park) to celebrate National Science Week.
Here is a link to the event details.
St Emilie’s has registered with Mobile Muster.
What is Mobile Muster?
‘MobileMuster is the Australian mobile phone industry’s official product stewardship program. It’s a free not for profit mobile phone recycling program that accepts all brands and types of mobile phones, plus their batteries, chargers and accessories. It is the mobile phone industry’s way of ensuring old mobile phone products don’t end up in landfill – but instead are recycled in a safe, secure and ethical way.”
You will find a Mobile muster collection box in the St Emilie’s admin building. You are welcome to drop off any unwanted mobile phones and accessories. When the box is full Mrs Cogger will arrange for Mobile Muster to come and collect the box.
This is another Wastewise initiative for the St Emilie’s community.
Don’t forget that we also offer a battery recycling bin as well. You can find our battery bin in the admin block.
