The 2021 Inter-School swimming carnival was held on Tuesday 23rd March at Aqualife Aquatic centre.
The St.Emilie’s swim team had been in training since the beginning of the term, with excellent numbers attending training sessions at Riverton Leisureplex.
We would like to say a big ‘Thank You” to all the parents that were able to get their children to and from the training sessions throughout this term.
We understand how difficult this can be, especially so early in the morning.
The carnival itself was a huge success for St.Emilie’s.
Previously our best finish was 3rd position from 5 schools.
On Tuesday we finished in 2nd Position, from 6 schools.
The attitude, effort and the way our students cheer and support each other during Inter-School events is second to none.
While it was a huge team effort to finish in second position, we had a number of students receive individual medals for the day.
Nalo was runner up champion boy in year 4, Olaf was champion boy in year 5 and Nathanael was runner up champion boy in Year 6.
We would also like to thank all the parents that attended to support us on the day.

Last Thursday, saw St.Emilie’s compete in the 2019 State Basketball Champions Cup.
To qualify for this event, our boys and girls team had both won our regional carnival earlier in the term.
Our boys team were outstanding. They finished on top of their pool without losing a game.
They then won their Quarter Final in convincing fashion.
Unfortunately for the boys, they lost their Semi-Final by 1 point to the eventual champions ( Good Shepherd).
Our girls team played 5 games; which included 2 wins, 2 losses and a heartbreaking Tie.
This cost our girls a spot in the Quarter-Finals.
The girls played with great tenacity, but also demonstrated terrific sportsmanship.
Parent’s from opposing schools went out of their way to find me and mention how impressed they were with the sportsmanship and attitude our girls demonstrated.
Once again, a big thank you to Mr. Carroll and Mr. Cottrell for coaching our teams.
We were also very lucky to have such great support from our parents, which i know the kids really appreciated.
