Our Years 3 to 6 House Swimming Carnivals took place last week with Forrest House taking out this year’s Spirit Shield for sportsmanship and House camaraderie.

The final results were Forrest in 1st place with 3452 points, followed by Stirling (3315), Giles (3288) and Dale (3094).

“It was an impressive effort demonstrated by all boys across the two days of competition, regardless of whether they finished first or last in a race. Awesome participation, very competitive and everyone giving 100 percent” said LW Parry Preparatory School Sportsmaster, Mr Brady Leckie.

“Congratulations to Lawson Kirby for breaking two school records; Year 4 50m Backstroke in 43.28 seconds (1983 standing record of 43.30 seconds) and Year 4 50m Breaststroke in 48.45 seconds (1996 standing record of 48.90 seconds). An amazing effort.”

  • Year 3 – Sam Reynolds
  • Year 4 – Lawson Kirby
  • Year 5 – Lucas Viiala
  • Year 6 – Ben Frank
