We thank God for the opportunity to be able to conduct the first sports carnival of the year during rising caseloads of COVID infection. We were graced with fine weather which was perfect for water-based activities.
Throughout the day, we had over 150 students attended the 2022 secondary school swimming carnival with excitement and enthusiasm. The secondary school was separated into three segments, part of the strategy to reduce the chances of transmission. Our swimmers rose to the occasion and managed to swim with very little time to rest between races. Each group completed all swimming races within 2 hours and returned to school resuming classroom lessons as planned. The year 12s had lots of fun swimming in their costume and inflatables, enjoying their very last school swimming carnival.
Thanks to all staff who were helping throughout the carnival and staff conducting classroom lessons back at school. We would also like to extend our gratitude to all parents who have supported and attended this event.
Last week, we presented the swimming medals during an online assembly hosted by Mr. Prinsloo and the year 12 leaders.
