In week 1 of Term 2, our Year 6 Just Dance team competed in their first Perth regional event.
Lucia, Nadia, Rafael and Charlie represented St Emilie’s against 7 other teams from Methodist Ladies’ College, Corpus Christi and North Harrisdale. The schools were broken into two heats and St Emilie’s lined up against North Harrisdale’s Team 1 and MLC’s Primary Team 1 and High School Team 1.
Over the day, the students danced to 10 songs and their scores from each song were combined to form the school’s grand total. The students all danced superbly, with Lucia leading the squad with consistent ‘Superstar’ and ‘Megastar’ scores in almost every song.
The students also took part in some cyber safe discussions with the organisers. Addressing topics such as micro transactions and gaming addiction, our team offered their thoughts on the free-to-play games that are available, and the ways that these games entice players to spend their money and time. The students were also told about Kids Helpline which is a fantastic resource for them to access if they are feeling unsafe or unsure online.
When the steam from the red-hot dancing shoes finally settled, St Emilie’s had placed 2nd in their heat, just behind MLC’s High School team 1, and this highlighted how hard the students had all worked throughout their dances. Unfortunately, this also meant they had not made it to the finals, but we held our heads high, very proud of this achievement in our first year of competing!
Congratulations to our Just Dance team! You represented our school beautifully!

On Tuesday 5th April, St. Emilie’s selected a boys and a girls team to compete in the Inter-School Cricket Carnival.
The event was held at Kent St. Senior High School, with Eight schools competing.
Our Girls team played in 4 matches and finished the day with a record of 2 wins and 2 losses.
Our Boys team played some unbelievable Cricket throughout the day, amassing some huge scores.
The boys piled on 260 runs in just 8 Overs in one of their victories.
They went on to win all 4 of their games and were the carnival champions.
They were fantastic in all aspects of the game.
They held their catches, they bowled well and the batting was outstanding.
The boys have now qualified for the Regional Finals, which will be played early in the 4th Term. (the winner of the Regional finals then heads to the WACA for the state finals.)
A big thank you to all the parents that turned up to support our teams and to Mrs Matkovich for giving up her time to coach the Girls.
