Last Friday we held our annual Inter-Steiner School Swimming Carnival at Ku-ring-gai Fitness and Aquatic Centre. Students from Years 7-10 participated in a range of aquatic events including freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly and relays, along with fun novelty races. It was brilliant to have the weather on our side! The sun was shining and the participation was excellent throughout the day. The students vs. teachers relay race was bursting with excitement and talent as they hit the water competing for colour house points as well as highlighting their swimming skills.
The day was filled with colour and spirit, in particular, our students with the best-dressed costumes who contributed extra colour house points to their house, including;
1st Jackson Power (Year 9)
2nd Nate Marshall (Year 9)
3rd Sam Street (Year 10)
A massive congratulations to The Green Colour House who dominated the carnival with 526 points closely followed by The Red Colour House on 444 points and the Blue Colour House on 415 points.
Thank you to all the staff and students for their participation and assistance throughout the day. Congratulations to all students who were in the water swimming 50m events, were part of a medley-relay team or dressed spectacularly to add points to their teams! It was fantastic to see all the Steiner Schools come together for this fabulous fun-filled community event and we look forward to meeting them again later in the year for the Athletics Carnival.
