JAM Swimming Carnival

A cool wet day greeted us at WIRAC for the JAM Swimming Carnival this week.  The day was well attended by students from Prep to Year 7 and our enthusiastic participants beamed with smiles throughout the day.  The mighty Macinnes clan ended up being victorious at the day’s end which made all of those wearing yellow shirts beam with a little extra pride than usual.

Several records were broken across the day with Bailey Harm the biggest contributor to these with four breathtaking efforts. Ellyse Kruger and Colby Miller also bettered previous marks.

Congratulations to these students on the following record-breaking performances:
