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:
1 Notre Dame 854
2 St Joseph’s 760
3 St Emilie’s 696
4 St Munchin’s 690
5 Sacred Heart 652
Thank you very much to all the parents who turned up and supported us on the day, as well as attending the early morning training sessions.
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.
