Predicted thunderstorms, an early injury and Mr. Croot directing traffic to coordinate the day. As the weather rolled in, there was a constant watch on the sky, to determine if it was going to be an early day. As the students rolled in, the excitement began to build.
After a short prayer to start the event, it was all hands on deck as we began the first race of year 3’s. They swam 25 meters, which meant they to be milk crates on the floor of the pool to help participants start. The more races completed, the higher the team spirits were. Although there were many races, there were also many side activities. These include volleyball, drawing, friendships through conversation, laughter and the odd As the
sun appeared it brought great relief that the weather is finding out that the event would not be cancelled.
There were many parents out supporting their children and many students supporting their peers as they watched from the bays. There were many unsung heroes working hard as the day persisted. From timing to keeping the house bays in order, organising students, the record keepers, and the announcers that kept us entertained throughout the day. On behalf the students we thank all those who brought their passion and made a positive contribution.
More clouds started to roll in the afternoon. With all events carried out it was time to call it a day. Well done to all participants who swam tirelessly to achieve their best or perhaps just got in the water to support their houses.
