At the end of last year and in Week 1 this Term, students
born in 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002 were offered the
opportunity to try out for a spot in our school SAPSASA
Swimming team. The carnival was held at the Strathalbyn
Swimming Centre on Wednesday 25 February (Week 5).
We had 15 students compete on the day, accompanied
by Kerry Dodd (teacher in charge) and Tara Irvin (parent
volunteer and organiser).
Congratulations to Adam H, Darcy S, Dimity P, Ruby O,
Connor I, Neriah M, Maddison C, Dane U, Jobe H,
Georgia B, Shanice O, Amber S, Molly C and our newest
team members Maggie B and Maya O.
Thanks to Tara and Kerry for organising this opportunity
and to the parents who drove and supported the students
on the day. Without such great adult support the students
would not be able to participate in these extra activities.
We are waiting for the official results, most of our
swimmers achieved personal bests. We should have 4
maybe 5 continuing on to the State Titles on Friday 27
March a special mention to Neriah M who had a clean
sweep of first place in all 4 50m events and Connor I 2nd
behind his great competitor Nichols S.
“On Wednesday 25th February, 15 students travelled to Strathalbyn for the inter school SAPSASA Swimming competition. The students did well in their age groups events and all had big smiles once their heat was complete. The students showed great team and sportsmanship, cheering everyone one when they were swimming.
Congratulations to the students who successfully won their age groups and now have an opportunity to compete at Marion Swimming centre in a few weeks, against other students from around the state.
