Senior swimming sports

Well done to the children who competed at our swimming sports yesterday.    There were lots of children who made huge improvements in our swimming lessons which enabled them to swim in the sports yesterday. We were really impressed with the children who swam and gave it a go with every child swimming at least 2 races each. A big thank you to our parent helpers for helping out on the day, the St Kevin's students and a special thank you to Mitch McRae the Sport Waitaki Coordinator who was our starter.

The presentation of trophies and certificates will be held at assembly on Friday 22nd March as next Friday we have 3 teams away in the Rippa Rugby tournament.
Congratulations to the students who qualified for the North Otago swimming sports next Wednesday.  The children have received a notice today which needs to be returned by tomorrow as entries are sent away Monday.
