Marches and war cries officially opened the morning’s proceedings for the Lower Years Swimming Carnival. Sounds from Years 1 and 2 bellowed across the pool deck on Tuesday 7 November, in preparation for the Inter-house battle.

Students took part in three swimming races; Kickboard, Backstroke and Freestyle. Their faces beamed with joy as they showed off their swimming skills, which they have been practicing this year in their weekly swimming lessons. The students were lucky enough to have in-water support from our Year 6 House Captains, as well as a number of Year 6 Helpers.

At the end of the carnival it was Andrews who took out first place with 70 points, followed by Starkey in second place with 62 points. There was only one point separating third and fourth place. Laver took out third place with 56 points and Franklin came in fourth with 55 points. Veivers closely followed in fifth place with 45 points.

A special thank you to all who came out to support this wonderful morning. To Ms Oppermann, Ms Ritson, Mr Butcher, Gap Students, Brittany Childs (Year 11 student) and our wonderful teaching staff, thank you for your dedication and tireless efforts on the day.
