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.
The St.Emilie’s Cross Country team have won the 2018 Inter-School Competition!
Our Year 4 students got us off to a flying start with Reece (runner up), Lila, Taylah and Allira all recording strong finishing positions.
Our Year 5 events were highlighted by Jessica L, who blew her opposition out of the water to win the Girls event. Caitlyn M also featured promininently in this event, finishing 3rd. While Jacob finished strongly to run 2nd in the Boys event.
Our Year 6 students finished the meet off strongly, with Alex putting in a huge final sprint to win the Boys event.
The Girls were very consistent in their event, with Loren, Chloe and Annette all featuring in the top 10.
Full credit must be given to all St.Emilie’s runners. The effort, attitude and support they gave each other was outstanding.
Many of our runners also turned up early to school for extra training sessions throughout last Term, and our students are fully deserving of the success they had today.
Last Friday, our students from Year 3-6 competed in our 2018 House Cross Country carnival.
Thankfully the weather provided great conditions for running and enabled the whole school to come out and cheer the runners on!

All of the above students will now represent St.Emilies this Thursday at the Inter School competition held at Tomato Lake.
This term our focus sports have been Basketball, Street Hockey and Tee Ball.
With all of these sports being Team orientated, one of our major focuses for the term was being able to demonstrate great teamwork and to get all team members involved in the game.
Specific skills such as passing, ball control, shooting, hitting and game awareness were also a featured during our lessons.
Next term we will be focussing on some Winter ball sports that include AFL, Netball, Soccer. This will also be a major focus for our Year 6 students who will have a very busy term with the Eagles Cup Inter school Competition taking up a majority of the term.
Cross Country training will also begin mid way through next term. Students will be notified when morning sessions are to be conducted.
Finally, Our Interschool swimmers did a fantastic job of representing our school last Thursday.
Even though we did finish 5th, our swimmers put in an amazing amount of training and effort throughout the term.
St.Emilie’s had 2 swimmers take out individual awards, with Jessica Ladiszlai winning the Year 5 Champion Girl award and Taylah Gates winning the Year 4 Girls Runner Up Champion award.
This is an amazing effort, considering how strong the opposition was on the day!
