School’s cool in the pool

McIvor Times - - SPORTS -

Wil­liam Wal­hert stretches out in the Lance­field pool as Toob­o­rac Pri­mary School com­bined with Pya­long Pri­mary School and Wil­low­mavin Pri­mary School for the clus­ter swimming sports. It was a good way to beat the re­cent heat­wave with the dis­trict, or di­vi­sion, com­pe­ti­tion to take place on Fri­day.

STU­DENTS at Toob­o­rac Pri­mary School kicked off their school year with a splash.

In just their sec­ond week of school for 2017 they com­peted in their swimming car­ni­val at Lance­field pool on Wed­nes­day com­bin­ing with Pya­long Pri­mary School and Wil­low­mavin Pri­mary School for the clus­ter swimming sports.

On a day where the mer­cury hit 31 stu­dents cooled off in the wa­ter and en­joyed a day of fun.

‘‘I was so proud of our stu­dents push­ing their bound­aries by swimming in events they had never en­tered be­fore,’’ prin­ci­pal James TenisonWoods said.

‘‘It is great stu­dents know they are safe to try new things — even if it means they will not win a ribbon.

‘‘They are stretch­ing their skills and hav­ing a go.

‘‘We also wish Bill Car­lin all the best com­pet­ing in the di­vi­sion com­pe­ti­tion next Fri­day. Go Bill!’’

Ebony Sta­ples and Lily Ford show off the rib­bons they won at the car­ni­val.
