On Monday, St.Emilie’s were competitors in the Basketball WA School Slam Series. St.Emilie’s also went into the day as the current champions from last year.
We were able to enter Three Teams into the tournament. (2 Boys and 1 Girls) Each team played 4 qualifying games with the aim of reaching the semi finals, then hopefully the grand final.
Our Boys A Team cruised through the qualifying rounds undefeated and booked a place in the semi finals. They then made light work of their semi final opponents and booked a meeting with East Fremantle in the grand final.
Things became a little tougher in the final, and although the game went right down to the wire, our boys never gave up; but couldn’t quite get over the line.
Our Boys B and Girls teams both went through their qualifying rounds without a win. However their effort and attitude during those games certainly didn’t reflect the results.
A big thank you to Mr Naden, Miss Corkhill, Mr Carroll and all the parents who turned up to support or help out in any way throughout the day.

Today, St.Emilie’s were paid a visit by the Perth Scorchers cricket development team. It was fantastic to have them come along and provide our Year 3 Students with a fun filled Cricket Clinic.
We were also very lucky to have Perth Scorchers star and Australian Opening batsman, Cameron Bancroft helping the kids out with their activities.
He also took the time to sign some autographs and have some great conversations with our students.
Our Year 3 Students completed a number of cricket based activities that included catching, throwing and fielding skills.
Some of our students were even lucky enough to receive prizes, which included a signed cricket bat!

During the school holidays, our school was represented by two girls (Allira and Lila) from year 4 at the state equestrian centre in Brigadoon.
The competition consisted of 3 major events.
The first event was a Jumping competition. The aim was to complete the course at the optimum time, whilst negotiating 10 jumps of 60cm. Allira and Lila were outstanding and placed equal 1st.
The second event was Dressage. The aim in this test is to complete a series of movement that include a canter, a trot and a walk. Lila was placed 2nd for this test and Allira finished in 4th position.
The final test was Combined Training. This is test is a combination of Show Jumping and Dressage. Allira finished the combined test in 2nd place, with Lila finishing in 3rd.
This is an awesome effort from these two girls and we will be following their future equestrian performances with much excitement!
