Five in a row
For the fifth year in a row Murray has been crowned the Finley Public School swimming carnival champion house.
Murray claimed the title at the school’s carnival at the Finley Pool on Friday.
Relieving principal Ruth Haynes said the weather was ‘‘perfect’’ and praised the behaviour and enthusiasm of all involved.
‘‘It was so pleasing to see so many smiling faces get out of the pool after a race, thrilled at achieving their goals,’’ she said.
‘‘These may have been to come first, second or third or just to finish.
‘‘We had a full range of regular swimming events, but also catered for the nonswimmers with novelty events and Miss Lewis’ fun water play activities to ensure all the Under 8s could join in and enjoy the day.
‘‘School spirit is well and truly alive at Finley Public with all students encouraging and cheering everyone, not only those in their house group.’’
