Wins at the WACSSA Swimming Carnival

Students donned the Rehoboth swimming caps, adjusted their goggles and were ready for the day to begin!

On Friday 26 March, selected Year 4-6 students from both campuses made the trek to HBF Stadium in Claremont for the 2021 WACSSA Swimming Carnival. It was a beautiful Autumn day to be out of the classroom and in the sunshine. After a cancellation last year, due to COVID, there was a buzz of nervous excitement amongst the competitors.

The top competitors from seven other Christian schools including Fremantle, Regent, Swan Valley, Providence, Swan, Carey (Harrisdale) and Kalamunda were all ready for a tough day of competition in the outdoor pool.

Students donned the Rehoboth swimming caps, adjusted their goggles and were ready for the day to begin!

After some close races, Jemima Radford received our first – FIRST – with an outstanding 50 metre freestyle swim. The Year 6 boys, ‘Awesome Foursome’ – Juho Ihn, Hugo van der Kooy, Jamie Matthews and Noah Strahan came first and second in their medley and freestyle events respectively. Fifty metres seemed like a very long way sometimes, but despite a few goggle malfunctions and the freshness of the water, every Rehoboth competitor put in their best effort and completed their event/s.

At the end of the day, the scores were very close, and Rehoboth finished in sixth place. A special congratulations to Jemima Radford who received the Year 5 Girl Runner Up medal and Noah Strahan for a fantastic day in the pool, earning the Year 6 Boy Runner Up medal.

It was especially great to have Susie Masters join us on the day to help with recording and to cheer on our students. Thank you to Mr and Mrs Matthews who did a great job marshalling students to their events and Mrs Cook for being a lane judge. It was wonderful to have so many parents there on the day to support our students.
