Age group champions James Auld, Connor Mitchell, Monique Purchase, Daymien Bona, Macey Auld and Saffy Lazenby.


Nagambie Primary School held its House Swimming Carnival last Thursday at the Nagambie pool.

Year 3-6 students competed in the traditional events of freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. There were 50m and 25m races as well as relays.

The participation, effort and competition from all students was excellent. Our Prep-2 students joined us at lunch time and enjoyed lots of aquatic games, as well as cheering their houses on in the relays.

The ongoing rivalry between Mitchell and Goulburn Houses continued, with Goulburn the winners at the end of the day. Their leaders Harry, Macey, Carmelo and Claudia made lovely acceptance speeches and also thanked Mitchell House for their fine effort and the staff and parents for their organisation.

Medals were presented to the age group champions. Congratulations to Monique Purchase and James Auld (9/10 year olds), Macey Auld and Daymien Bona (11) and Saffy Lazenby and Connor Mitchell (12).

Following the House swimming sports we enjoyed a family get together, with more swimming, talking and a barbecue.

A highlight of the day, in addition to the wonderful effort by the students, was having so many parents and grandparents in attendance to help out and cheer their children on.
