Maclean students showcase their swimming ability

MACLEAN Public's swimming carnival was a great opportunity, in excellent conditions, for our students to showcase their swimming ability and team spirit. It was terrific to see students having a go and entering in both competitive and novelty events.

It was pleasing to see some students enter in every event and eager to earn some points for their house. Next year we are hoping to include a few additional events such as a 25m freestyle race to accommodate for students who can swim 25m comfortably but not 50m just yet.

Thank you to the parents, family and friends who came along to support our students and enjoy the day. Some students from Maclean High School dedicated their time to help run the day, for which we are very appreciative. We would also like to take the opportunity to thank all staff for their support and hard work on the day to make the swimming carnival possible.

Well done and good luck to a number of students who now progress through to the Northern Rivers swimming carnival held at Lismore on February 25.

Finally, congratulations to Yaegl who was this year's winner and to all of our age champions. Junior: Sabrina Bowly and Blake Johnson; 11's: Billy Johnson and Chenoa Kapeen; Seniors: Royce McIntyre and Grace Johnson.
