The Inter-School Athletics Carnival took place on Tuesday and Thursday this week.
On Tuesday we were greeted with blazing sunshine and perfect conditions for our children to compete in the 400m, Long Jump, Turbo Javelin and Shot Put events.
St.Emilie’s began the carnival brilliantly by dominating the 400m events as well as some very strong performances in the Jumps and Throws.
At the half way mark of the carnival, St.Emilie’s were placed in second position, very narrowly behind St.Joseph’s.
Day Two of the carnival was Thursday.
We were greeted with contrasting conditions. Wet, wild and windy conditions ensured the running events and team games would be very hard work for all competitors.
Once again, St.Emilie’s students performed consistently well throughout the day across all events. Our team game performances were a highlight, with over 350 of our points coming from these events.
We also had 3 of our students rewarded with medals for their own individual performances throughout the carnival.
Amy P in year 6, Louis H in year 5 and Sophie A in year 4 were recognised for their outstanding efforts.
St.Emilie’s finished the carnival in 2nd position. We are very proud of the effort from all of our team members and we continue to lead the way with the sportsmanship and attitude that we display.
A very big thank you to all the staff that assisted on the day and to the parents who braved the conditions to give us your support.
The final scores are listed below:
1st – St.Joseph’s 1937
2nd – St.Emilie’s 1659
3rd – Sacred Heart 1391
4th – Xavier 1363
5th – Notre Dame 1315
6th – St.MUnchin’s 1279
Last Friday, St.Emilie’s entered two boys teams and a girls team into the Lakeside Basketball Slam Series.
The competition was divided into 4 pools. Each team played in Three qualifying games, with the top placed side in each pool to advance to the semi-finals and then the grand final.
Our Girls team began with a draw, followed by 2 convincing wins- taking them directly to the semi-finals. Once again, the girls put in a dominant performance to advance to the grand final.
After a low scoring and tough first half, the girls eventually ran away with a grand final victory after defeating Willetton Primary School.
Our two boys teams were placed in separate pools.
Our A team went through the qualifying rounds unbeaten, with some terrific basketball and some big wins!
The final was a very physical contest and our boys went into half time with scores level. After digging deep in the second half, our boys eventually pulled away to claim victory, winning by 6 points.
Our B team had a mixed day. They had an excellent win, but also suffered a number of close losses. Unfortunately they missed out on the semi-finals.
Overall it was a hugely successful day for St.Emilie’s, winning both the boys and the girls competition. These teams have now qualified for the State Championships to be held at Bendat Stadium on November 21.
A huge thank you to Mr. Mckie, Mr Carroll, Mr Cottrell and all the parents who turned up to cheer and provide support.
Thursday the 1st August saw St.Emilie’s competing in our Inter-School Cross Country Carnival.
Our students were simply amazing!
Not only did they represent our school with distinction on the course, but the sportsmanship and team first attitude they displayed was outstanding.
Whilst we had many outstanding individual performances, it was the overall team effort that led to our success.
The St.Emilie’s Cross Country carnival was held last Friday.
Our Year 3 -6 children showed amazing effort, courage and determination to complete the course. Thankfully the rain stayed away and we saw some terrific running ability on display.
The results of the carnival were very close, with Gannon edging out De Vialar to win this year’s competition.
Gannon 176 pts
De Vialar 171 pts
Mackillop 164 pts
Mazenod 150 pts
The next challenge for us will be the Inter School Cross Country, being held at Tomato Lake this Thursday. We will be hoping to defend our title as reigning champions.
