The 2021 Inter-School swimming carnival was held on Tuesday 23rd March at Aqualife Aquatic centre.
The St.Emilie’s swim team had been in training since the beginning of the term, with excellent numbers attending training sessions at Riverton Leisureplex.
We would like to say a big ‘Thank You” to all the parents that were able to get their children to and from the training sessions throughout this term.
We understand how difficult this can be, especially so early in the morning.
The carnival itself was a huge success for St.Emilie’s.
Previously our best finish was 3rd position from 5 schools.
On Tuesday we finished in 2nd Position, from 6 schools.
The attitude, effort and the way our students cheer and support each other during Inter-School events is second to none.
While it was a huge team effort to finish in second position, we had a number of students receive individual medals for the day.
Nalo was runner up champion boy in year 4, Olaf was champion boy in year 5 and Nathanael was runner up champion boy in Year 6.
We would also like to thank all the parents that attended to support us on the day.

Last week we were lucky enough to have a visit from the Australian Electoral Commission.
Each class had a different facilitator and they taught us all about the government. This aligned perfectly with our current HASS unit.
Our favourite part was learning about voting because we got to hold a real life vote using secret ballots and ballot boxes.
We voted for our favourite chocolate, which after a long process of counting the votes, was kit kat in both of our classes!
Check out some photos from our sessions.
Attached is the Inter-School swimming carnival order of events.
There are no specified times for each race.
We will be aiming to begin the carnival at 9:30am.
We hope to have presentations completed by 2:00pm
A reminder that the bus will be departing St.Emilie’s at 8:40am on Tuesday morning.
Parents are most welcome to attend and support our students.
In preparation for our Easter Assembly, and as a part of our current Religious Education unit, we have created stop motion animations of the Easter Story.
We worked in teams to recall the easter story. Then we used the application Stop Motion to record a scene in teams using lego figures and backdrops.
On Wednesday of last week the season of Lent began with Ash Wednesday. As a school we celebrated by coming together in our undercover area, praying and receiving ashes.
Later that day in our classrooms, we wrote Lenten Promises. We defined what a promise is, first of all. Then we thought and wrote about who we would like to PRAY for, what we would GIVE this Lent and what we would FAST from. These special Lenten Promises are displayed across our classroom and the front office. If you pop into the office this week, make sure to check them out! Some of us wrote on cross templates, and some of us wrote on leaves.
