Newton Achieves a Hat-trick!

House passion was on display, with students cheering their hearts out for each and every event.

Breaking with tradition, the Primary House Swimming Carnival at Riverton Leisureplex was held earlier than usual on Wednesday 21 February. We scored the only day below 35 degrees for the whole week, which assisted in making things a little more pleasant for everyone.

With growing numbers across both campuses, this carnival was bigger than ever, with students in Year 4 to 6 swimming in 50m, 25m, and team events. House passion was on display, with students cheering their hearts out for each and every event.

Despite being pushed a little for time at the very end due to some factors outside our control, we were able to finish the carnival on a high with the Grand School Relay. Following the input of final results, the following Champion and Runner Up Champions were presented with some special awards to acknowledge their individual performances.

With Newton literally swimming away with the carnival, they also succeeded in achieving a hat trick, with successive wins in 2022, 2023, and now 2024 – an amazing result! Well done to all students who represented their House by participating in events throughout the carnival.

Thanks to all the staff and parent helpers for their hard work in assisting to help the carnival run smoothly. It was also great to have the help from a contingent of Year 11 students – their invaluable assistance was much appreciated! Finally, special thanks to the staff who helped carry the load by assisting in setting up and packing down the event – thank you all.

It is always a gift to see and hear the excitement that comes from the students for our House Swimming Carnival, as well as see them using their gifts to bring glory to God!
