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!

All of the above students will now represent St.Emilies this Thursday at the Inter School competition held at Tomato Lake.
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!
