The Swimming Carnival is always a fun and loud day, but which House took out the big prize?
On Friday 6 March, the Year 4-6 students from both campuses participated in the Primary House Swimming Carnival, held at Riverton Leisureplex.
This is always a fun and loud day, where the students are given the opportunity to participate in a range of different events according to their swimming abilities.
The 50 metre races allowed more competent swimmers the opportunity to earn a place in the interschool team, although unfortunately our interschool partner, WACSSA, has had to cancel this event in light of health advice around the corona virus.
House points were earned by those swimmers who entered the 25 metre races and the novelty team events. It was great to see so many students working together as teams during the inflatable donut race and the pool toy dive relay!
It was wonderful to have a group of Year 12 students help out on the day, assisting the Primary students in the water with the 25 metre and novelty events. What a wonderful reflection of God’s love these Year 12 students were able to demonstrate to their younger peers as they put their faith into practice. Thank you, Year 12s – you are great role models!
A big congratulations to the following students on their individual achievements:
The Houses were very close throughout the day, but it was Newton that ended up being victorious with a total of 808 points – well done to those students in Newton!
A big thank you to all staff, parents, and students that attended, volunteered, and participated in the event. You helped to make it a great day where individual talents, good sportsmanship, and teamwork could be celebrated!
