LIONS YOUTH OF THE YEAR
Congratulations to Hayden Kubler, Raemah Krause and Alex Pronk who represented Xavier in the Lions Youth of the Year Competition. Our students always impress at this event this year was no exception. The judges and Lions and Lioness members were delighted with their efforts in the interviews and with their speeches and outstanding conduct throughout the first round. Alex also won the Lions award for the evening and will progress to Round 2 in Maryborough on 3rd March. As the MC pointed out, all the students who enter are winners, simply for taking up the challenge to participate.

After a few years without a win, the Kondari House has taken out the Years 7-12 Swimming Carnival held at the Hervey Bay Aquatic Centre on Friday February 2nd. Despite the overcast and cool Summer's day, students participated enthusiastically in Championship, Participation and Novelty events throughout the day. A highlight event was the Big Splash with the 8 fastest boys and 8 fastest girls battling it out over 25m freestyle. Year 11 student, Tom Veitch and Year 10 student, Kasey Gamble were the winners of this event – by very small margins. War Cries were prominent throughout the day with the Kondari House judged marginal winners by our impartial judges on the day. A big thank you to the Hervey Bay Aquatic Centre staff, parents, Xavier staff and students for making the day a great success.
Students who have been selected to compete at the Hervey Bay District Swimming Carnival on Monday 19th February have been notified and information sent home with these students.
