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!

Thank you to Joshua, Noel, Heather and Loren who represented St Emilie’s Catholic Primary School at Newman College for the LifeLink launch last Wednesday 6 June. Archbishop Timothy Costelloe, Bishop Don Spoxton and Acting Executive Director of CEWA, Debra Sayce spoke of the importance of LifeLink and the difference it makes to so many people throughout WA.
Each school received a special commemorative shield as recognition for their participation in the LifeLink appeal. The LifeLink organisation was established by the Archdiocese of Perth in 1994 to provide for the ongoing financial and promotional support of agencies established or assisted by the Church.
LifeLink’s agencies deliver professional services & caring support to thousands of people in need throughout Western Australia each year.
Last year, LifeLink funded agencies reached out to help over 34,000 Western Australian families and individuals in need, delivering more than $54 million in caring services and professional programmes throughout WA
On Tuesday the year 6 girls had a Robogals incursion. Robogals is a student run organisation that aims to inspire and empower young women to consider studying engineering and related fields. Robogals offer engineering and technology workshops free-of-charge in their local communities, focusing on encouraging girls from primary to secondary school to explore an interest, as well as cultivate self-confidence, in these areas.
Our presenter was Aaron. Aaron commenced the workshop with a presentation about STEM careers.
Aaron then showed the students how to program the Lego Mindstorms robots.
The students were placed into their cooperative teams and given time to experiment with he robots.
Our first challenge was to program the robot so that it travelled in a ‘square’.
Aaron was available to help the students if they encountered any difficulties.
Here are some photos of the students enjoying the incursion.
Mrs Cogger would like to thank Aaron and Dil from Robogals for providing this wonderful opportunity of learning, fun and collaboration.
