St Mary's makes a splash
BENJAMIN Goldspink was happy to help his little brother in the pool as 200 St Mary's Lower Primary School students had a swimming fun day yesterday at WIRAC to finish their swimming program for term four.
Students from Year 6 were in the pool for the three hours of the carnival to assist students from prep to year three.
Benjamin had the chance to walk alongside his younger brother Tyson and said “it was fun”.
As for Tyson, his smile said it all when asked about his morning at WIRAC.
Teacher Kerri Shooter said every child in the lower school was involved on a non-competitive basis.
“The children did three strokes or adaptations of the strokes (for the younger ones),” Shooter said.
“They were encouraged to just participate, have a good time and increase their water safety and confidence around the pool. Year 3 students were timed for district qualification.”
