Junior School Swimming Carnival

Last Friday our Years 3-6 students competed in the annual Junior Campus Swimming Carnival at the North Adelaide Aquatic Centre. House leaders ensured all the children were in high spirits and encouraged their teammates to enjoy themselves and to perform their best. The competitors eagerly took to the water where they performed extremely well throughout the day.

The points were very close all day but Moffatt (374) came away with the victory from Prince (311), Gooch (277) was third and Halstead (268) finished fourth.

All of the students are to be congratulated for their levels of participation and efforts to ensure the day was a success. In particular, the efforts of the House Captains for organising their teams throughout the day was exceptional.

The following students were awarded Age Championship medals on the day for their outstanding swimming:
