Swimming Success

Students and staff totally got into the spirit of this years swimming sports where they embraced the new house colors and names.  Students rallied and competition was furious as they swam their hearts out to gain points for their teams. A dance off for extra points created huge interest with a couple from each house starting, then most the students and teachers joined in. As usual the Staff vs Student race was one of  the many highlights, as the students thought they were going to win but great efforts from Mr Clarke and Mr Woods saw the staff power home to win by over half a length of the pool.  Ms Peeters science class also created some enthusiastic barracking as the 2nd annual cardboard boat race took place. Unfortunately only one boat made it to the end (under walking power) , this boat was made by Shayne and Harley Coleman, Vicky Sunderland and Sarah McDonald.  The inaugural winners of the carnival were Green-Sharks, with house captains Louis Rodaughan, Emily Lane and Rachel Summerfield accepting the shield on behalf of their house.
