Swimming Carnival

The new pool at Hornsby Aquatic centre allowed for greater access to lanes than did the previous venue. On a cold and wet day it was the largest number of student participation in the history of the school, considering we are yet to experience the large numbers coming through the school, currently in the infants classes. many girls and boys confidently entered heats in the different swimming strokes during the carnival. Several students will represent our school at Beecroft Zone PSSA Carnival at Sydney Olympic Aquatic Centre. Special mention goes to Lily in 3/4P for breaking two school records in 9 year girls 50m freestyle and Junior  girls 50m butterfly strokes.
Congratulations to all our house captains and vice-captains for their important input. We must thank Mrs Barrett, Mrs Sharpe and Mr Vaughan for the huge responsibility in convening the carnival. it was again, a fantastic opportunity for parents and teachers to work together for our deserving students.
