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!

They were here to promote a brand new Girls only T20 Blast competition held at Sutherlands Park each Friday evening.
The girls were able to have a go at a number of the skills involved in the game and were encouraged to really give the game a go!
We have some very skilful girls at St.Emilie’s and we are sure they would enjoy the game of Cricket a lot!
Yesterday, a St Emilie’s Catholic Primary School basketball team travelled to Bendat Basketball Centre in Floreat to compete in the State Championships for primary school basketball. The team qualified by winning a tournament at Lakeside Recreation Centre in Bibra Lake in August.
The top 12 primary school boys basketball teams from across the state qualified for the State Championship. The boys representing St Emilie’s were Taj F, Ethan S, Ky C, Luca D, Nicholas D, Kade M, Patrick S and Lachlan B.
The boys team had two early wins against Bannister Creek Primary School and Rangeway Primary School in the first two rounds. In round three, they came up against the undefeated Ashdale Primary School and lost a close game by 1 point. Two hard fought games followed against Greenmount Primary School and Wembley Primary School which resulted in wins to the St Emilie’s team. By winning four games and only losing one game, the boys moved into the finals.
In the semi-final, St Emilie’ came up against East Fremantle Primary School, and after a slow start worked hard on defense to come away with the win and move into the Grand Final. In the Grand Final, the St Emilie’s team were playing against Ashdale Primary School, who defeated the team earlier in the tournament. The first half was a close contest with St Emilie’s in early foul trouble, only in the last few minutes were the boys able to build a small lead. The second half was a great example of teamwork with all the boys concentrating on rebounding and defense, and St Emilie’s pulled away to win by 15 points. St Emilie’s Catholic Primary School became the state champions for boys primary school basketball in Western Australia.
Special thanks to Brett Forrest who coached the team throughout the tournament and was a positive and special influence on the boys. His expertise and impact on the boys in the tournament through his coaching and mentoring was much appreciated. Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who came to support, and also to those parents who helped with scoring and assisting the team. A big thanks to Rachel Davies who organised the special St Emilie’s basketball uniforms for the tournament. Most of all, congratulations to the boys who competed, they were a credit to the St Emilie’s community, showing great sportsmanship and maturity in a tough tournament. We are proud of their efforts in representing St Emilie’s Catholic Primary School.
Below is a quick synopsis of the Inter-School Athletics Carnival, which was held during week 3 of this Term. Another great day was had by all!
The carnival involved a Jumps & Throws day, which was made up of Long Jump, Shot Put, Turbo Javelin and the 400m running events.
We concluded the carnival on the Friday with the Track events, consisting of the 100m, 200m, Team Games and Relays.
The scoring from both of these carnival days are combined to give us our winning school, as well as our individual champions.
St.Emilie’s, once again performed very strongly over both carnival days and managed to finish 2nd overall!
the points were as follows:
- St.Joseph’s 1584
- St.Emilie’s 1490
- Sacred Heart 1371
- St.Munchin’s 1286
- Notre Dame 1280
- Xavier 1158
All the students who were chosen to represent St.Emilie’s can be extremely proud of themselves.
Having such excellent results does not occur without the students being committed to getting the best out of themselves. There were a number of early morning training sessions that students attended and it was great to see such enthusiasm amongst our competitors.
A big thank you to all parents who turned up and cheered us on and to Mr Munro, Mrs Harvey and Miss Agustsson who also provided fantastic assistance on the day.
Congratulations to AMY PASSEUR who was awarded Year 4 CHAMPION GIRL and to TAYLAH HABOLDT who won the Yearn6 RUNNER UP CHAMPION GIRL, missing out on being overall champion by just 1 point! A wonderful achievement girls!
St Emilie’s once again achieved great results – both on and off the field!

Last Monday, we took Three year 6 teams to compete against a number of other local primary schools in our very first Basketball Carnival.
We entered 2 boys teams and 1 girls team into the tournament.
The Tournament was played at Lakeside recreation centre in Bibra lake. Each of our teams played in 3 qualifying games, with the top side from each Pool to play Finals!
Our Boys A Team went through the tournament undefeated and played some outstanding basketball, highlighted by a brilliant passing game.
They made it through to the Grand Final, where they defeated All Saints 36-8!
These boys worked extremely well as a team and have now qualified for the State Championship series to be held in November.
Our Boys B Team and Our Girls team did not manage to qualify for the finals, however their attitude, effort and team work was also to be commended.
The sportsmanship shown by St.Emilie’s children was again a real standout on the day!
A very big thank you to Mr and Mrs Forrest, who were a huge help on the day. Providing uniforms, coaching and assisting with scoring was all very much appreciated!
Thanks also to Miss Corkhill , Mr Munro and Jacob Aquino for giving up their time to coach.
We also had a fantastic turnout of parent support during the day.
