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!

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.
This morning the Devereux brothers and Jermaine met with Mrs Cogger to work in St Emilie’s Community Veggie Garden. Mrs Cogger was here early (in the freezing cold) to set everything up. The boys and their parents had a busy morning.
Firstly they had to pull up a lot of radishes. The radishes will need to be harvested by end of term to make space for the potatoes we have received from Seed Potatoes for Schools from WA Potatoes.
Then the boys had to pick and bag the rocket. Finally we were ready to take the produce to the hall to sell to the parents arriving for the Year 5 assembly item.
A small group of Year 6 students will calculate the profit as they manage the veggie accounts for Mrs Cogger.
St Emilie’s Community Veggie Garden will continue in Term 3 so if you would like to be involved please email Mrs Cogger.
