18 Mar 8…Points…in…it! Gold takes the shield
Our students from Years 4, 5 and 6 made the most of yesterday’s beautiful autumn day at our annual Spencer Park Primary School Swimming Carnival. There was plenty of splashing, dashing, kicking and fun in the pool with Green faction getting off to a cracking start and securing an early lead followed closely by Gold and Red factions.
After a full morning of action in freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke and novelty events it came down to just 8 faction points…Yes, just 8 points separated Gold and Green factions for first place. 8…Points…in…it! Congratulations to GOLD faction for sneaking in the carnival win with 289 points. Green finished in second place with 281 points followed by Red faction with 251 points.
A lot of work goes into organising and running a school carnival so…HUGE thanks to our hard working SPPS staff, the team at Albany Leisure and Aquatic Centre and our wonderful school community volunteers. Thanks also to our proud parents, grandparents and extended families who came along to support and cheer on our swimmers, we know our students appreciated you being there for them.
Finally, congratulations to our 2021 SPPS Swimming Champions…drum roll…..
