Primary Swimming Carnival

Congratulations to all competitors who competed at the Primary Swimming Carnival on Wednesday 16 February. The Carnival was a roaring success despite only competitors being able to compete this year. There was lots of House colour on display, and every swimmer displayed outstanding sportsmanship. Special mention to Alexandra Hall (11 years) who broke three individual records. Look out for Alexandra in the 2028 Olympics!  

Well done to the mighty Cranmer House who dominated the Carnival. Thanks must go to Mrs Cochrane for supplying delicious lunches for officials and to Mrs Kathy Thompson for her being the Meet Manager Technician on the day. Thank you also to Mrs Houison (Director of Sport) for overseeing the carnival to ensure everything ran smoothly. Below is the final point score from the Carnival events:

  • 1st place: Cranmer - 502 points
  • 2nd place: Ridley - 438 points
  • 3rd place: Latimer - 349 points
  • 4th place: Ryle - 239 points

In place of students in Years 3-6 not being able to attend the Swimming Carnival they were given the opportunity to participate in a range of activities up at the Oval to earn house points. These activities were run by Year 6 leaders. The students in Years 3-6 had a great time displaying their skills and teamwork. The famous Chicken Throw activity was again another highlight of the day.

Well done to the Year 6 leaders for displaying great leadership skills and congratulations to Cranmer House for winning the event.
