On your marks, Get Set, GO!
On Thursday the 16th of February, Marsden High School held their annual school swimming carnival. The weather on the day was perfect and ideal for swimming. It was definitely a great day to be at Cabarita Swimming Centre and out of the classroom. According to the teachers in attendance, there was record participation from Marsden student's on the day. That's a huge wrap for the student's to get behind a whole school event and congratulations to everyone who got involved in all the swimming events on the day.
School spirit was definitely alive and well, with students sitting in there house groups making sure they were earning points and competing to the best of their abilities. BIG thanks to our house captains for making sure everyone was competing and that their areas where nice and clean.
The events ran smoothly with many standouts on the day. A huge mention to Clair X., the Marsden superfish who broke five school records on the day. We wish all our competitors the best of luck at the Zone carnival which will be held on the 1st March.
Lastly a huge thank you to the staff and student volunteers who helped on the day. The carnival wouldn't have run as smoothly without your help and the PDHPE staff really appreciated your time and effort. Big thank you to Ms Bugeja who took on the role of recording and captured all the vital information with house scores and age champions and Mr Metzke and Ms Soutter for their efforts in getting the students in there correct races.
Overall the day was a huge success.
