BRAITHWAITE – FOUR IN A ROW

Year 4 – 6 Faction Swimming Carnival

Brilliantly led by Year 6 Champion Georgia and runner up Marcus, Braithwaite powered down the pool gaining an early lead and holding on tight with podium finishes in almost every race to win the 2021 faction swimming carnival.

Shakespeare kept edging closer all day with runner-up Year 6 Champion Juliet and Year 4 and 5 champions as well.

Every team worked hard for their place including lunch break dancing (everyone loves the Macarena) for the Bonus Points shield. Menzies cheering, dancing and positive attitude all day saw them win the Bonus Point shield with record points.

Final Faction Scores – Braithwaite 534 (WOW!) Shakespeare 503 Axford 468 Menzies 436.

The carnival was such a great success because of the excellent co-ordination by Mrs Putt, Ms Kenny and Mrs Townsend and the enormous support from staff and parents, who barely stopped all day.

A hint to Year 3 students, join the fun, pass level 6 state-swim and swim for your faction and school just like our fantastic champions listed:
