Rube Goldberg and the LEX@R Kids

Primary Swimming Carnival

We had a great day for the Swimming Carnival on Monday this week. The students were excited, the new PE teacher was perhaps just a little nervous, and everyone was ready to do their best and to cheer everyone on.

Our Carnival started with the 50 metre races for those students who are able to swim well. It was great to see that a number of students recorded a personal best time in their races. We awarded…

I was very proud of the children…
