There were also plenty of free swims which gave the students time to cool off and have fun in the water with their friends. Mrs Henry said the carnival was a huge success due to the participation of the students and the efforts of many parents and staff. “Thank you to all staff members, parents and carers who attended and assisted at the carnival, your efforts are always appreciated,” she said. “Thanks also to Mrs Kelly Pietsch who was our life guard, and to Leon from the Masters Swim Club for setting up on the day.” The house trophy, medallions and ribbons will be presented at an upcoming school assembly.
