After a stormy start, on 2 March, the sun shone and enthusiasm bubbled. These factors combined to make our 2011 Swimming Carnival a resounding success. All swimmers participated with top team spirit and maximum effort.
Congratulations go to trophy winners, age champions and all swimmers for their very high level of participation. Nominated swimmers will participate in the Zone Swimming at Chandler.
Greatly appreciated was the help given on the day by staff, parents helpers, Year 7 students and supporters.
Tiffany (Year 6), Cassidy (Year 7) and Benjamin (Year 6) competed in the North-West District Swim Trials. Cassidy swam in 5 events and achieved a personal best in all her races. Tiffany swam 50 metres in all strokes and achieved a personal best in three of these races. Benjamin swam in three races, also achieving three personal best performances.
"We enjoyed the day and it was great to get this experience and swim against swimmers from other schools," said Benjamin.
Well done swimmers! OLD is proud of you.
