On Thursday the 4th April, St.Emilie’s took along a squad of 30 swimmers to compete in the Inter-School carnival held at Aqualife Aquatic centre in Victoria Park.
The cool breeze and weather provided challenging conditions for the children, however this did not stop us from achieving our best ever result at an Inter-School Swimming carnival.
The children should be very proud of their efforts. Many of them attending early morning training sessions throughout the term and showing great commitment to get the best out of themselves.
Our Year 4, 5 and 6 classes all performed very consistently throughout the day. On top of this, we had some Outstanding individual performances.
Nathanael was awarded the year 4 Champion Swimmer, Jessica was awarded the Open 100m Freestyle Gold Medal and was the Runner Up Champion Swimmer overall. Rory was also awarded the Runner Up Champion Swimmer for Year 6.
Final Scores were as follows:
Parliament in Western Australia inherited the English system of government and law when it was colonised in 1829. Its first legislative body was the Legislative Council, which met for the first time on 7 February 1832 and was presided over by the Governor of Western Australia, Captain James Stirling, who nominated four other members.
On the 26th February 2019, the Year 5 and 6 students went on an excursion to the Parliament House and Constitutional Centre in West Perth. The students were involved in 3 sessions.
The Constitutional Centre where the children learnt all about the 3 levels of government. Federal – State – Local.
An educational tour of Parliament House to see how it works and some had the opportunity to undertake a role-play in the Legislative Assembly Chamber.
Lastly, the students had the opportunity to meet a Member of Parliament (our local member for Southern River – Terry Healy).

This is a wonderful time for you and your family to:
- POP IN AND TAKE A SPIN AROUND THE ROOM, HOSTED BY YOUR CHILD!
- VIEW SOME WORK SAMPLES!
- JOIN IN A COUPLE OF PRACTICAL ‘HANDS ON’ LEARNING TASKS!
Please note that this is not time to bail up the teacher to talk about an individual student’s progress. This discussion is better left to a private Two-Way meeting time.
Please be sure to thank your teacher and to keep an eye on younger siblings.
Thanks for your ongoing support of your child’s learning – your presence and encouragement of your child at a night such as this goes a long way to keeping motivation high.
As a Waterwise School, we encourage all our families to participate in Seek a Leak Week. This activity can be done at home.
As part of our Seek a Leak Week Waterwise schools are encouraged to take the time to spot a leak with some activity plans.
Leaks can be extremely wasteful and costly. Did you know that a leaking toilet can result in nearly 3 buckets of wasted water a day!
Here is a link to the Waterwise website with details on how to run your own Seek a Leak at home.
