Headfirst into the New Year
13 Mar 2015
The first major sporting event for 2015 was the recent swimming carnival. The occasion is always a highlight in the students’ diaries. It is the first opportunity for Year 7 swimmers to meet and mingle with the more experienced. It is also the exciting challenge for College House Teams to establish superiority, individual swimmers make their mark and the entire College community enjoys the day out of class and gets into the swim.
“Students demonstrate so much passion during Carnival Day”, commented Mr Stein, Head of Sport. “The cheering is so spontaneous, with participation in novelty events, volleyball, wading pool water polo always excellent!” Mr Stein commended the many strong swimmers who enter the competitive events but at the same time indicating his wish that more swimmers take up the challenges in future.
The champion house, Jordan, had a great point score of 1018, followed by Tabor 932, Mamre 907 and Cana 871.
Selections will shortly be announced for the Diocesan team. Students achieving a benchmark standard in events will be invited to attend the Diocesan Carnival on 24th March at Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre.
“Staff and students had a great day”, concluded Mr Stein, “the sporting spirit was excellent and I congratulate all who participated or assisted.
Students at Emmaus Catholic College, Kemps Creek splashed into the new school year with enthusiasm and talent.
