Once again, Moe Outdoor Pool was the scene for Kurnai College’s Inter House Swimming Carnival held on Thursday 13th, February 2020. While the weather were not ideal, the cool temperature and rain did not dampen the student’s spirits and the enthusiasm from all participants went a long way to making the carnival a success.
Students from across the College braved the cold conditions by participating in the various competitive and novelty events. Others simply spent a relaxing day catching up with their friends, or participated in the Best Dressed Competition.
Forsyth have maintained their stronghold on the Kurnai College Championship Cup winning for the third consecutive year ahead of runners up Siddle.
The Campus experienced its highest participation rate; a credit to all our students, and to our parents for getting onto compass to provide consent for the students to attend.
Overall, the students were happy, smiling and getting along. Comments were made from the teachers regarding the exceptional well-mannered students. A congratulations to all our competitors and we wish our top performers all the very best on their efforts for the Wellington Swimming Carnival that will be held later in the term.
These events that bring the College together are rare opportunities to bring together friends from across the campuses in a relaxed environment. With two more similar type events to come this year, the Athletics in a few weeks and the Big Day Out later in June, Kurnai College is looking forward to maintaining positive participation and a friendly atmosphere at these events.
A huge thank you to all of the staff and students from Kurnai College for their efforts; to the Health and Physical Education staff for their professional running of the day; and, to the Latrobe Leisure staff at Moe Outdoor Pool for their assistance and use of such an excellent facility.
