The Primary school (Year 4 – 6) participated in its swimming carnival this week, with a beautiful warm autumn day providing additional incentive for the students to get their toes wet.
Mr Murphy, along with a wonderful team of staff and parents, helped co-ordinate the day, which saw a number of aspiring young swimmers show-casing their skills.
For the less water-loving amongst the students, some novelty events were held, which allowed swimmers of all stages and levels to realistically compete against one another. A terrific group of Secondary students aided in certain events, and helped the less capable swimmers also enjoy the day. A concluding free swim after the events were completed gave every student further opportunity to enjoy this water-based event.
The results of the day were:
Judah (Red)162 points
Benjamin (Green)206 points
Naphtali (Blue) 238 points
Rueben (Yellow) 240 points
Students who showed strength on this day will be selected to participate in the inter-school swimming carnival next week.
Well done to everyone who helped on the day, co-ordinated events, cheered on students or participated.
