On Thursday 14 February Eumundi held the annual inter house swimming carnival. Another terrific turn out of enthusiastic swimmers was evident in the high level of participation throughout the day’s program of events. Although some wet weather meant the carnival was postponed from Friday 8 February, we were fortunate enough to have a good turn-out of spectators present to cheer the children on. A sincere thank you to all for your help and support in making this an enjoyable day of inter house competition.
Once more, our Eumundi students are to be highly commended for their behaviour throughout the day and for the amazing way they cheered and supported each other in and out of the pool. Our swimmers were strongly supported by parents and family members and we again thank everyone who helped out on this busy day.
A special thanks to:
The staff members who were able to help with setting and packing up and especially our groundsman, Mr Robinson, for the assistance before, during and/or after the carnival.
Teachers and teacher aides for your tireless efforts in organising/running the carnival without much of a break!
- Eumundi Aquatic Centre for their generous support in allowing the use of facilities
- NDSHS and Noosaville SS for providing shade shelters for each of the four sports houses
- Our parent timekeepers who kindly volunteered to give up their time to assist on the day!
- Tuckshop ladies for their great work behind the scenes
And finally, Mrs Cross for all of the time and effort before the carnival to ensure that everything was set up and organised for the day’s swimming events.
