Good sports in the pool
SPORTSMANSHIP was on full display at St Joseph’s Primary School swimming carnival last Friday.
When the relay team had no other swimmer, Patrick Kirk stood up and said he would “give it a go” despite having never swum 50m before.
And just when it looked like Patrick couldn’t go on, children from both teams all started to chant for Patrick.
He finished strongly to the cheers from the whole school.
It was a fitting end to a great day.
Age champions were Holly Bryant (senior girl), Clayton Gamble (senior boy), Sophie Young (junior girl) and Tom Colvin (junior boy).
