During second Term, our year Six football team competed in the Eagles Cup competition and for the first time, St.Emilie’s won this competition. We remained undefeated throughout our 4 fixtures.
We played some terrific football over the term and of course we were very well supported by our parents on game day.
To celebrate our achievement, we arranged for some West Coast players to visit and provide our footy team with an hour long clinic.
Fraser McInnes and Will Maginess gave up an hour out of their busy training schedule to provide a few extra tips and training ideas to our footy team and it really was highly motivating for all involved.
Congratulations again to all our students and parent helpers and supporters – we have a lot to celebrate!
On Thursday, the last day of term 2, our year Six students had a fantastic opportunity to attend the 2016 Olympics day at the Perth Hockey Stadium.
The day began with an opening ceremony, where children from many schools paraded behind a flag from an Olympic country.
After the opening ceremony, the students were lucky enough to have Katrina Porter as a guest speaker.
Katrina is an Australian Paralympic swimmer, who won a gold medal in backstroke at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. She discussed the challenges involved in training and competing at the top level, especially dealing with Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita, a condition that causes muscle weakness and joint stiffness.
The students were then able to rotate around 6 different skill stations that included Hockey, Volleyball, Soccer, Football and some games from the past.
Students had an amazing time and were able to learn a number of new skills.
A very big thank you to Mrs Wallington, Mrs Chia, Mrs Hammond, Mrs Marshall, Mrs Curulli and Mr Klass for generously helping out for the afternoon.
Mr Davis, Health & PE Teacher

At The beginning of the term, our year Six students were asked to present a short speech to their fellow House members. The students were asked to describe why they felt they would be an ideal leader for their House and how they could set the right example both inside and outside the classroom.
Students from years 4-6 then cast their votes on who they would like to lead their respective Houses.
The ideas and passion as well as the confidence and skill that all those who spoke had on the day was very inspiring.
The results were as follows:
CAPTAINS: Mitchell Curulli, Patricia Rabino
VICE CAPTAINS: Jarrad Vescio, Chloe Roberto
