Students used their gifts and encouraged each other in the races.
After a week of intense humidity in Perth, the cooler changes was a welcome relief for our Primary Interhouse Swimming Carnival at Riverton Leisureplex on Friday 12 March.
The Year 4-6 students from both campuses met, ready and raring, for a fun day of House competition in the pool. It was wonderful to see students using their gifts and encouraging each other in the 50m and 25m races and the popular novelty events.
Our High School and Primary School students from Years 12 and 6 were great role models, exercising their leadership skills with grace and care. Many Year 12’s patiently shivered their way through multiple 25m, kickboard, pool toy dive and donut races, assisting students in the pool, while others handed out ribbons to the winners. The Year 6 leaders did a fantastic job in the house bays, organising students for races and leading the cheer.
It was encouraging to see many students competing in multiple events, each one contributing valuable points to their house tally. A special congratulations to the following students for their outstanding achievements on the day:
|Year 4 Boy Champion||Nathan Matthews|
|Year 4 Girl Champion||Kate Wong|
|Year 5 Boy Champion||David Cook|
|Year 5 Girl Champion||Jemima Radford|
|Year 6 Boy Champion||Noah Strahan|
|Year 6 Girl Champion||Clair van Dam|
At the end of the Carnival, there were minimal points separating all three Houses:
Congratulations to Tyndale who came away with the shield on 1035 points! It was well deserved and Tyndale’s first win since 2016!
It was great to see many parents and families cheering and supporting our students in the pool. A big thank you to the many teachers, parents and students who assisted and made a fantastic day for our school community.
