In a dominant display of swimming talent it was Flynn who took out the 2016 Faction Swimming Carnival – their first victory since 1999.
Canning collected the Bonus Points Shield after 3 consecutive years with the Championship shield.
It was a fun day, jam-packed with races and novelty events for all our year 3-6 students to enjoy. A big thanks must go to our wonderful teachers who helped make the day run on time and smoothly.
At Queen of Apostles we enjoy spirited involvement by the wider community. This was evident again on Friday by the great turnout of parents and extended families who came along to encourage and support our swimmers. Also, it was wonderful to have parent helpers to judge places and get in the water to assist with races and relays too.
Most of all I was pleased to see students challenge themselves, whether they be proficient or novice swimmers. The aquatic environment is fun place to play and a great way to exercise. The support shown to classmates and friends no matter their swimming ability was very encouraging, and I am sure our students appreciate the opportunity to show their talents, or to simply be given the chance to ‘have a go’!

We wish our Inter-school swimmers all the best as they prepare for their carnival on Tuesday 5th April at Rockingham Aquatic Centre.
