 Year Sevens Welcomed to the Pool

Secondary Swimming Carnival
Last Friday the 6th of February the annual Xavier Secondary Swimming Carnival took place at the Hervey Bay Aquatic Centre. We welcomed the introduction of our year 7s students and a 12s years event for all strokes. Even though the wind was up and we received a spot of light rain through the day, this didn’t dampen the spirit of students on the day. The day started with our 12-year-olds jumping straight in the pool – no time to suss out of the competition! The day ran very smoothly with some excellent results and records broken all over the pool!
Congratulations to Thomas Veitch, Tessie White (2 records!) and Sophie Kluck (4 records!!) as well as the Dirum under 16 girls relay team and the Dirum under 13 boy relay team on their record breaking swims.
The novelty events also ran well with many smiling faces as the tug-o-war and dolphin races were fought out.
The relays were also an entertaining feature of the day as we managed to squeeze in the 12 years relay races too. It was the mighty Dirum who held out in the end with a strong performance all day. Special congratulations must go to Narwari who came in at second and were only 20 points behind Dirum at one point throughout the day! Buthu and Kondari also had a commendable go at the title.
Many huge thanks to the wonderful staff for their efforts on the day as without them the carnival would not have been the success that it was. Let’s see if Dirum can continue their winning streak for the Cross Country early in week 2! The other 3 houses will be keen to knock Dirum off their winning streak!
Stay tuned to coming newsletters where the age champions will be announced after they receive their medallions on an assembly soon.
**Please note that any competitive 12-year-old year 7 swimmers will be invited down to the P-6 carnival the end of the year (with an opportunity to attend 2 carnivals!) to compete against the 12 years year 6 students also, where their age champions and records will be hotly contested!
