Milestones for Pre-Preps in Term Two
By Lynne Spanner, Teacher - Pre-Prep
We have enjoyed a wonderful term in Pre-Prep. We are feeling confident and engaged in the programme and with the school routine.

On a beautiful summer’s day our enthusiastic, energetic and eager Junior School Students from Years 3 to 6 participated in the Inter-House Swimming Carnival held Tuesday 6 February. It was a fantastic day of swimming and the long day did not waiver the determination and House spirit of our young swimmers.
Wow! What a fantastic day we had at the Carnival. The sun was shining, the colours were bright, the Houses were cheering and everyone was smiling; all evidence of the exciting atmosphere the event created for our Junior School.
It was fabulous to see so many students swimming in several events throughout the day. Every child who participates is a winner in my eyes. Congratulations to the students who broke records, to our Age Champions and to the winning House, Andrews. This is the first time Andrews has taken out the top accolade for swimming since 2009. What an achievement!
Congratulations to the following students who broke records on the day:
The placings on the day were as follows:
Below is the list of all our age champions. Well done to these students!
Thank you to the many parents who volunteered in various roles throughout the day and to the P&F for organising the barbecue lunch, where the aromas could be enjoyed across the entire College campus. Mouths were watering with anticipation.
Thank you to the staff who worked tirelessly in the lead up and throughout the day, to ensure the day ran smoothly, which it most certainly did. Special thanks goes to Mr Mark Pitura for organising the Swimming Carnival, with the assistance of Forrest Butcher and Andrew Michael.
A huge thank you to all the Junior School staff and parents (who volunteer as timekeepers) who contributed to a successfully run day.
Please note,The Junior APS Swimming Carnival is to be held at Somerset College next Thursday 15 February starting at 9.00am. Good luck to all our swimmers who will be selected.« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
