This year, the College made the journey down the highway to the Murwillumbah Aquatic Centre to ensure that we were able to have our 30th Annual Swimming Carnival.  Students who attended the carnival had a fun-filled time as they embraced the ‘Aussie’ theme and enjoyed the sunshine whilst participating in a variety of events with their friends and housemates. 

I applaud all the students who stepped up and competed in the championship races to ensure they did all they could to contribute to their house points.  The students’ enthusiasm and team spirit are what made the carnival so competitive and enjoyable.  I congratulate and thank them all for their wonderful efforts and cooperation on the day.

A big thank you to the house leaders who worked hard not only throughout the day but also in the lead up to promote participation and create carnival cheer, you did a fantastic job. 

Congratulations to all age champions on their success at the carnival.  A special mention must go to Kye Thompson who now holds the College record in the 16s Male 50m Breaststroke at a time of 35.07 and to Elise Thompson who also claimed a new College record in the Opens Female 50m Breaststroke in a time of 40.25.  Congratulations to both on these outstanding achievements.
