“All boys swam exceptionally well with many records broken this year,” commented Preparatory School Sportsmaster, Brady Leckie.

“Year 5 student Lawson Kirby even broke some records that had been in place since the 1970s!”

“For the first time, the carnival was held in Term 4 which allows swimmers to be identified ahead of the JPSSA Swimming Carnival held in Term 1.”

Congratulations to all boys who set new records on the day and this year’s champion boys.
