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 Thursday the 15th October, 24 students were chosen to represent St Emilie’s in the School Sports WA Basketball Slam Series. The All Stars girls coached by Mr Stuart Munro, walked away as overall champions humbly winning every single game for the day! The All Stars will now play in the Championship Cup at Bendat Basketball Centre on November 25th (more information to come). The second girls team (coached by Miss Louise Corkhill) and boys team (coached by Liam – Azari’s cousin) also played exceptionally well gaining confidence and momentum with every game they played together.
Overall, the spirit and sportsmanship demonstrated by St Emilie was unrivalled. Our wonderful students played every game with a positive attitude and tried their absolute best. I would like to thank the coaches for their patience and guidance. I would also like to give a special mention to the parents who took the day to support St Emilie’s and assisted with scoring throughout the day. Bring on the Championship Cup!

The Inter-School Athletics Carnival took place on Tuesday and Thursday this week.
On Tuesday we were greeted with blazing sunshine and perfect conditions for our children to compete in the 400m, Long Jump, Turbo Javelin and Shot Put events.
St.Emilie’s began the carnival brilliantly by dominating the 400m events as well as some very strong performances in the Jumps and Throws.
At the half way mark of the carnival, St.Emilie’s were placed in second position, very narrowly behind St.Joseph’s.
Day Two of the carnival was Thursday.
We were greeted with contrasting conditions. Wet, wild and windy conditions ensured the running events and team games would be very hard work for all competitors.
Once again, St.Emilie’s students performed consistently well throughout the day across all events. Our team game performances were a highlight, with over 350 of our points coming from these events.
We also had 3 of our students rewarded with medals for their own individual performances throughout the carnival.
Amy P in year 6, Louis H in year 5 and Sophie A in year 4 were recognised for their outstanding efforts.
St.Emilie’s finished the carnival in 2nd position. We are very proud of the effort from all of our team members and we continue to lead the way with the sportsmanship and attitude that we display.
A very big thank you to all the staff that assisted on the day and to the parents who braved the conditions to give us your support.
The final scores are listed below:
1st – St.Joseph’s 1937
2nd – St.Emilie’s 1659
3rd – Sacred Heart 1391
4th – Xavier 1363
