Our 2021 Splash Carnival was held on Friday 21 February in hot but overcast conditions with a touch of rain to cool things down as the afternoon progressed.
The carnival was officially opened by Mr Keleher who stayed on to commentate and encourage the teams in their races. Students from both the Point Pearce and Maitland campuses were present and cheered loudly and often for their teams while demonstrating excellent sportsmanship throughout the competition.
The Eagles and Sharks teams competed for the Julie Adams Cup which promotes participation in swimming as one of its goals. Our two wonderful swimming instructors Jodie Ames and Shirley Lands had prepared the students thoroughly for the day and this was evident in the strong swimming styles, positive attitudes and focus on safety.
A particular highlight of the day was seeing Sharks students helping out the Eagle teams that were short on numbers so that races could continue. Thank you to the wonderful crowd of family and friends who supported the students, to our Swimming instructors Shirley and Jodie, to the Secondary Sports Captains who assisted with the races, to Primary Coordinator Anna Allen for organising the day and to all the teachers for their help throughout the afternoon.
