More than 100 avid swim­mers will make their way to Port Hed­land this week to com­pete in the an­nual Pil­bara Spirit Swim­ming and Life­sav­ing Car­ni­val.

Chil­dren from Tom Price, Mar­ble Bar, Yande­yarra, South Hed­land and Port Hed­land will travel a col­lec­tive 700km to at­tend the car­ni­val.

The event fo­cuses on en­cour­ag­ing Abo­rig­i­nal chil­dren in the Pil­bara and Kim­ber­ley re­gions to par­tic­i­pate in more or­gan­ised swim­ming and life­sav­ing in a fun rac­ing en­vi­ron­ment. Fa­cil­i­tated by Royal Life Sav­ing So­ci­ety WA and Swim­ming WA, the two or­gan­i­sa­tions use the car­ni­val as a tool to en­sure swim­ming and wa­ter safety ed­u­ca­tion are key in com­mu­ni­ties across the re­gion.

Chil­dren com­pete in the 25m freestyle race at Mar­ble Bar Swim­ming Pool ear­lier this year.
