Carnival a splash at Gympie South State School

AN OVERCAST sky did little to dampen the enthusiasm of Gympie South State School students at their annual Year 4-7 interhouse swimming carnival last Friday.

With the aims of the day to set personal goals and participation, it was tremendous to see the students having fun and enjoying the atmosphere.

Coming out on top for the day was Kidd (645 points), followed by Price (472), Dean (446) and Stumm (385).

Excelling were age champions Ryan Kennedy (nine-year boy), Savannah Jones (nine-year girl), Will Dawkings (10-year boy), Olivia Hobson (10-year girl), Ben Stubbings (11-year boy), Georgia Butler (11-year girl), Troy Carlson (12-year boy), Eliza Hobson (12-year girl), Jacob Hinds (13-year boy) and Stephanie Parkhill (13-year girl).

Congratulations to Troy Carlson who was the open champion and broke seven records and to the South staff who won the parents/staff relay.
