Rehoboth Breaks Decades Drought at WACSSA Primary Swimming Carnival

WACSSA Primary Swimming Carnival

Everyone waited with bated breath which quickly turned into elation, as Rehoboth was named the overall winner of the carnival!

Following the College House Swimming Carnival, the Rehoboth Primary swim-team were briming with fresh hope and desire to perform at the WACSSA Primary Swimming Carnival. The carnival was held on Monday 25 March, once again at the HBF Stadium in the outdoor pool. Wonderful weather ensured good conditions for swimming.

Our team were competitive all day, despite not dominating in every event. As the carnival progressed, Rehoboth was certainly holding their own and were in the top group for overall scores.

The following students performed consistently well over the carnival and were recognised for their individual efforts:

  • Year 6 Girls Gold – Emma vS
  • Year 6 Boys Gold – Eli S
  • Year 6 Boys Silver – Nathan B


Just before the relays, scores were updated, and Rehoboth had just nudged into the lead. The question remained – would the team be able to perform well enough in the final events to secure the victory?

The relays were exciting to say the least, with some mixed results, giving the highs and lows to those watching on the sidelines. The Grand School relay was the final event of the day and did not disappoint. The fastest swimmers from our team gave their all, and finishes with a commanding win to finish the day.

The anticipation continued to build as the final results for the carnival were announced. Everyone waited with bated breath which quickly turned into elation, as Rehoboth was named the overall winner of the carnival! This amazing feat does not come lightly, as it has been decades since our last victory at an interschool swimming carnival. Well done to the whole team for their efforts and contribution to a memorable victory!

Thanks to Mrs Cook for reprising her official role assisting at the carnival. Special thanks go to our parent helpers in the bay, Mrs Bylsma, Mrs Cheng, and Mrs Fraser, for their important assistance throughout the day.

Despite taking victory, we are reminded that everything we do is for the glory of God. It is always great to see students shining when using their gifts in sport and competing in a way that brings honour to Him.
