EAC Swimming Carnivals - 11 & 12 February
Congratulations to all involved with the recent Primary and Secondary Swimming Carnivals. The participation, behaviour and cooperation of the students was simply outstanding. The level of enthusiasm was fantastic. Team spirit was also highly visible with many students dressed in House colours and eager to hear the updated point scores throughout the day. There was also great enthusiasm in the water, with many heats going down to the final stroke and the place getters being separated by the smallest of margins. The spirit of competition was strong and equally matched by the sportsmanship of the competitors. When I was standing with the timekeepers at the end of the pool, I heard numerous students congratulating other competitors on their performance and then watched as they returned to the House groups, excitedly talking about the race and the efforts of the other swimmers.
A huge thank you to Mr Walker and his team for all their organisation and efforts in bringing the carnivals together. There were lots of personal best performances and a number of records to fall at each carnival.
