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!

Mr and Mrs Cogger are delighted to inform the school community that we have managed to get some coverage of the quenda living in St Emilie’s Bushland. Recently Mrs Cogger purchased a ‘night activation camera’. Over the past few weeks we have been setting up the camera in different spots around the bushland with the hope of capturing some images of the quenda.
Finally we had some luck.
This image shows the quenda on the far right bottom corner
We also found a mouse on the tree trunk.
If you click this link below you will see the video coverage of the quenda.
Our Year Ones are learning about nocturnal animals. The students will be having a presentation from Amanda Kristancic from the Backyard Bandicoot project based at Murdoch University. We will be very excited to share these images with her.
