In March this year Oliver from Year 3 competed in the BMX Australian National Championships that were held at the Bunbury BMX raceway. and he finished 10th in Australia.
There were 60 boys in his age group, which represented the top few riders of approximately100 racing clubs around Australia.
He has now earned himself the opportunity and qualified to represent Australia in the UCI BMX World Championships that will be held in Baku, Azerbaijan in June.
What a wonderful achievement for a boy who has only been competing for 2 years! While he won’t be making the trip this year, if he continues to do well then a trip to next years Championships in Zolder, Belgium may be an option!
Congratulations Oliver on some impressive riding and all the best in your future competitions!
During the school holidays, our school was represented by two girls (Allira and Lila) from year 4 at the state equestrian centre in Brigadoon.
The competition consisted of 3 major events.
The first event was a Jumping competition. The aim was to complete the course at the optimum time, whilst negotiating 10 jumps of 60cm. Allira and Lila were outstanding and placed equal 1st.
The second event was Dressage. The aim in this test is to complete a series of movement that include a canter, a trot and a walk. Lila was placed 2nd for this test and Allira finished in 4th position.
The final test was Combined Training. This is test is a combination of Show Jumping and Dressage. Allira finished the combined test in 2nd place, with Lila finishing in 3rd.
This is an awesome effort from these two girls and we will be following their future equestrian performances with much excitement!

This term our focus sports have been Basketball, Street Hockey and Tee Ball.
With all of these sports being Team orientated, one of our major focuses for the term was being able to demonstrate great teamwork and to get all team members involved in the game.
Specific skills such as passing, ball control, shooting, hitting and game awareness were also a featured during our lessons.
Next term we will be focussing on some Winter ball sports that include AFL, Netball, Soccer. This will also be a major focus for our Year 6 students who will have a very busy term with the Eagles Cup Inter school Competition taking up a majority of the term.
Cross Country training will also begin mid way through next term. Students will be notified when morning sessions are to be conducted.
Finally, Our Interschool swimmers did a fantastic job of representing our school last Thursday.
Even though we did finish 5th, our swimmers put in an amazing amount of training and effort throughout the term.
St.Emilie’s had 2 swimmers take out individual awards, with Jessica Ladiszlai winning the Year 5 Champion Girl award and Taylah Gates winning the Year 4 Girls Runner Up Champion award.
This is an amazing effort, considering how strong the opposition was on the day!
