Primary Sport Report for Term 4

Swimming Carnival

GCC ended the year with the annual Swimming Carnival and students were excited about participating in such a fun event at the Burpengary Aquatic Centre.

This year we were blessed with sunny weather and enjoyed the full use of the aquatic center. Students were given the opportunity to nominate to race in the timed competitive events, while all non-nominated swimmers participated in 25m races to maximise participation.

Students participated in four rotations throughout the day from participating in the three main event strokes, to free swimming in the indoor and outdoor splash pools while having some downtime eating and cheering their team housemates from the grandstand during races.

Congratulations to Sinai who was winning House Champion.
