Carnival feeling as BCS secondary students hit the pool

Zarli Ray, Abbey Van Veen, Charlotte Hopkins.

IN gloriously warm conditions, local students took to the pool for the annual Bulahdelah Central School secondary swimming carnival.

Participation from both staff and students was excellent, with the continuous swim hotly contested and the noodle relay bringing out the competitive streak in all participants and spectators cheering from the poolside.

There were several classic catches made and the belly flop competition provided entertainment for the crowd.

The day ended with mixed relays and the staff again entered a team into the senior race.

“Unfortunately, we weren’t successful this year, but we will be back again next year to take the crown!” said BCS PDHPE teacher Ashlee Styles.

“Special mention goes to Tatum Hodgson from the Science faculty for her enthusiastic participation in all events on the day.”

The newly inducted Sporting House Captains and Vice-Captains led their teams ably throughout the carnival, with Kenny the winning house of the day.

“Well done to all students who participated in events, both competitive and novelty, on the day and congratulations to those who represented BCS at the Manning Zone Swimming Carnival,” Ashlee said.

“A massive thank you to all staff and students who assisted on the day – it was an enormous success!”
