Earlier in the day the Pre-Primary, Year One and Year Two boys participated in their annual ELC Swimming Carnival. The boys were helped by Year 6 students and were very well prepared for the morning having spent the past three weeks working hard on their basic swimming skills and showing great determination to further extend these skills. This allowed the boys to show off their swimming capabilities to their family, friends and teachers. It was rewarding to see all boys participated with plenty of energy and enthusiasm. Well done everyone!
