St Emilie’s House Carnival
The 2nd annual St Emilie’s House Carnival was held on Friday the 19th September.
Prior to the carnival, the students had spent several weeks training and learning the team games, as well as completing sprint time trials in preparation for their running events.
On Carnival day, we were greeted with perfect weather and a tremendous turnout of parents to cheer the students along.
A big thank you must go to all the parents who attended and provided such great support for the kids. It was clearly the largest parent turnout we have had at this event. It was also fantastic to see parents joining their children for lunch, in what looked like a giant picnic.
The children themselves should be very proud of their efforts. While there were obviously some standout performances, It was clear that every student was trying their very best. There were also many acts of great sportsmanship, with students shaking each other’s hands after events and patting each other on the back. Good sportsmanship is something we want our students to be known for, both at a House carnival level and at Interschool level.
At the completion of both the Jumps, throws and track events, points were awarded to all ‘A” division competitors depending on which position they finished. We awarded a champion and a runner up champion athlete from years 4-6. Congratulations to the students below who received these awards.

I would like to send a very big thank you to Mr Munro, who assisted greatly with the preparation of this carnival. Also a big thank you to all the teachers on the day who were responsible for judging, marshalling, scoring or managing the bays.
Carnivals cannot be a success like ours unless we have a combination of great parent support, teacher assistance and children who genuinely try their best.
We are lucky enough at St. Emilie’s to have all three.
